Hi Jean Pierre, I love it, tilt and all. It's an amazing and telling picture of this generation of people. We (the younger ones) have contacts all over the world (superficial as they might be with the new technologies) but older people are doomed to fall asleep in front of the television.
A good POV and a very good shot.
I like very much this 'atmosphere' and the sense of solitude of the man
A very very great photograph describing well the real life of millions men and women.
I recognize my father (75 y.o.) in your photography !
I am very moved also by reading your note.
Great picture and great project Jean. I really like this story teling projet of yours. Glad i stumble across this image so that i also discovered teh others. This shows life, just as it is. Wonderfull :-)
Hello Jean Pierre,
One more nice project.. Great photo with a good story..
Great shot Jean Pierre, and excellent note. The alignment really does add to the photo. I like it alot.
i like this kind of people shots :)
a sense of reality...when the subject is in the most relax and natural form.
Photo taken in the "run" hideing behind the wall is so great.
It is sad....your note is great but the photo speaks better.
I love it!
very touching shot, specially because your POV and perspective works here like if we are witnesses of this moment (a bit far away from the scene).. for me is like the camera that approch very slowly to your grandfather, so not to disturb him.
I like your idea of keeping the tilt and the low POV creates quite an impact. Great picture!
A lot of old person finish alone. It's a good remembering here. I like the dramatic message of that picture. It his reeally humain composition, without trick... the reality...
Hi Jean Pierre,
very touching shot and note -
great work and great ralisation -
a wonderful story
Thanks and have a nice week end
Hi Jean Pierre,
maybe you should try to sell your fotos and your stories to a journal "A different view of NYC".
Like your note and your picture. Let's hope that our own future will be a bit different. But who knows. Great documentation!
Great shot of every day living. I like the sneakiness and the tilt makes the photo interesting. Though seems pretty lonely and sad, it is a real life capture and thats what makes it so great. Keep it up, you have a great style and you tell real good stories in your notes... it is very important and helpful!
Thanks for sharing
the tilt is good, it has an uncomfortable feeling to it...almost sad. i'm used to seeing walls decorated with photos and paintings so this feels somewhat desolate to me as well. i guess i can understand it from your perspective - the lack of art and culture in a place, just boredom, crime, and poverty would make anyone depressed. anyway great photography.
Good work Jean. I like it alot. The tilt doesn't bother me, but I think you should of used different color for the border of this photo. The yellow is too similar to the color at the edge of the door frame and thus confusing the viewer just where exactly the photo ends. I think a horizontal shot might of worked a bit better using the two dark walls on both sides of the door as a way to help frame your subject. Regardless, I am happy to see your photography skills improving so fast.
I just noticed this one, an excellent atmosphere shot, I like the story of your photo.

Un vrai roman-feuilleton cette prise de vue ... incroyable exercice de style qui nous permet de contempler une photographie d'art et de tendresse.
Merci pour le partage.

I think its very kind and humanly touching picture. You managed to convey the mood of isolation very well. The tilt, grain and POV are superb. Did you think of turning it b&w, btw? I found the green channel would work best here. Great shot again.
Taken from a great point of view. I like your diplomacy in taking this shot. Old age boredom is real, it is a shame. Perhaps your grandfather had no motivation in the evenings. I don't mind the composition not being perfect with the horizontals and verticals...it's the subject I like the best.
i think this picture is brilliant. it reminds me of a donovan wylie photo that i can't seem to find a link to, of his uncle. have you seen it?
it's amazing when someone can present their family in such a way -- it's very intimate and also the photo tells us so much. i think you're skilled and brave to catch this.
the composition and tilt are excellent.
