A new portrait in my gallery, an old man, this is the original picture, no color add, no photo shop surgery.
Taken with a white wall as background.

This picture has been taken during a stroll in Bruges I saw these old man with his bike.
I have asked for take a picture of them, he was immediate accord.
Also I may this portrait places on TE without problems.
This is a wonderful man, yes, 97 year old, what a energy man, he has a shop of interiors, and cover chairs and stairs, carpets and other decoration house interior.
His family coming out of Charleroi a city in Wallonia, Belgium, his father was a miner, in totally eleven children, now life yet eight brothers and sisters of these man, all more than 85 year old, really a very strong family.
I find this very pleasant that these old man with a very good memory speaks with a very good memory about everything exactly or it was yesterday.
Formerly as child was his parents very poor people, few food share with all brothers and sisters.
One hour I have with these man talked.
A lovely afternoon for my wife and me self.

I hope you appreciate this portrait.
John
