Julie said...

Yes, very attractive, V.

Bob Crowe said...

I like this one a lot. Lots of action, up and moving. The red umbrella is a great touch. But that face! What got his attention to boost him out of his chair?

BTW, were we supposed to talk? Was I supposed to email you?

Jilly said...

Love the shot. Energy, great looking guy - that umbrella finishes it all off nicely.

Nathalie said...

Nice, yes indeed!

I had to laugh at Bibi's comment.
How did you get this dynamic shot?

Virginia said...

Nathalie and bibi,
I was sitting there drinking my coffee, and I spotted his hat. He was putting the tablecloths on the tables. I started shooting and caught him as he was walking me way! No, we're not strangers now !HA

Daryl said...

Handsome ...

Kim said...

Have you noticed a lot of cute young guys are going for that cross somewhere between Jason Mraz and Ralph Cramden? I expect Jackie Gleason's voice to come booming from the sidelines and the guy to break out in a hip song :-).
Cool capture with his shirt tails flying in the breeze.
-Kim

PS- I'm lovin' your new avitar photo. Lookin' pretty Ms. V!
-K.

Virginia said...

Kim, I know Ralph Cramden but the other I have no clue. I laughed at Jackie Gleason's voice. I loved the Honeymooners! The avatar is compliments of my friend Mark Duren.

Melissa said...

I will take one of him with a glass of white burgundy....

T. Becque said...

Really nice and your composition is too! :)

This style reminds me of the Rat Pack 1960s vibe. All I have to say is, "Hubba, hubba."

Dinah Toro said...

Oi! Hey! LADY! Put down that camera!
