I see this man in town quite often, the other day he noticed me taking some candids in the street and he asked me if I'd captured the people in the box :) I felt it was the right occasion to ask him for a portrait, the smile was a welcome fluke so I used it for the challenge. He wasn't drunk and he's not that sort at all, I think he's just one of those everything's a smile kind of guys. I've printed a small copy out and put it in my camera bag, the next time I see him, I'll give it to him.

Thanks for the kind votes and comments.

A heck of a character study. I see more of a smile in his eyes than his mouth if that makes sense. Great portrait.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/19/2012 10:28:23 PM
Wonderful processing, expression - and of course, smile. My pick of the challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/19/2012 08:56:07 PM
The blue, I think - what a great scarcely repressed grin - and the expressive eyes to go with it. Voted earlier.
