[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Out and about around York I couldn't help notice this old man coming out of his house and talking to a passer by, what struck me was the crookedness of the building was mirrored in his posture.

Converted to B&W and adjusted curves, resized for TL

Hope you like it

hi bri .. excellent work with great combination between the old man and the old building :D ... good choice with b&w
well done ..Have a nice week end. Harout.

Hi Brian,

I find the house itself very interesting. It's really beautiful. The man just adds to the photo as it shows someone who has apparently lived here a long time. I like the black and white you have chosen, but I also would be interested in seeing the color version in this instance.

It reminded me of this:

"There was a crooked man, and he walked a crooked mile.
He found a crooked sixpence against a crooked stile.
He bought a crooked cat, which caught a crooked mouse,
And they all lived together in a little crooked house." Lisa

:) I got a good laugh when I saw the title. This is classic! I love it! A great eye to capture this moment.

nice composition with interesting architecture! very well spotted!
tfs
best regards,

Its a miracle Brian, that this house still stands ! The same counts for the man ;-)
The b/w presentation emphasises the structure of the building and the posture of the man. Good choice.

Joop!

Hello Brian, I like the connection between the house and the man,well spotted.
I knew that this was York even before I read your note.
The b/w was a good idea, we are not distracted by colour and can focus more on the subject.
The characters are perfectly placed in the composition.
Tfs, regards Jean.
