At most times patience seems to be the key to capture an acceptable expression, but wait too long and opportunity is lost, which has happened many a time. Comments and any suggestions welcomed.

Jeepers Dave and all'a you guys: I hope you didn't think I meant to imply that the portrait was ruined by a couple of niggly little basically dust spots. Dave, if you never did a thing to it, it would remain a tremendous character study, the best kind of portrait there is. :thumbup:

(I prefer to present pictures in albums because I can put them in specific order.)

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

"a couple of niggly little basically dust spots" can ruin an image so better to point them out now than in print! Thank you for speaking up! S-
