A Veguero is a Cuban Tobacco plantation worker. Tobacco, as well as being smoked is also used in the production of many after-shave lotions and colognes. 'Veguero' is the name of such an aftershave made in Cuba.


Thanks for the votes and comments. A ribbon in a Free Study is always something to treasure.

This guy was very amiable and didn't need much prompting to strike a variety of poses. I liked this one best which I guess is his 'cool' look.

Thanks again.

Every wrinkle, every grey hair, has a thousand stories behind it. Captured well my friend.

I like this pose, especially the tilt of his head. Great light and B&W processing. Back to comment and bump. Makes me want to stay and keep looking.

Terrific face and black and white is the perfect choice for this character, I think. The processing is a bit too strong for me - I'm not fond of that super sharpened, silver toned look - but this is a good choice for the subject and I know most people love it. Top 10% for me. Already voted, back to comment.

That is some serious sharpness and detail.
