    Not sure which I like more....also, I'm not sure what his actual name is, so Frankie it is. I was walking around downtown with my camera out, and he stopped me and was like "hey, you can take my picture if you want" and stood there like that. I wish all people were like him.

    B&W easily. You pay attention to the texture in the black and white version as opposed to the color.

    Yes, b&w ... and I say that, even though in b&w there usually is not the least bit of green left :lol: !

    Well I am one to go against the grain - but Colour! The blue glasses just add so much of the character that seems to come through from your description.

    The B/W is geat! The color one "smells" a bit on a selective coloring...

    I really like the fact that the texture in the back is just going on into his beard. And you mention this the best in B/W! Very cool portrait!
