One thing I rarely do is ask some if I can take their portrait even though I often see people I would like to photograph. Together with the Photojournalism, it is something I should work on. Anyway, this colourful character (at least he was before I processed it out) was more than happy pose.

It's turning into a mono week. Again using the gradient map for the B&W conversion and the colour balance to add the tone. Noise added to mimic grain, square crop and vignette at the edges. I will try and get a Holga at some stage, but for now I'll just fake it.

Update: For those interested, the "original" can be seen here.
