A beautiful man busking outside the post-office today. I got up the courage and asked if I could take his photo, he said yes. Not a traditional portrait, but a beautiful soul.

WOW SUE .. !!
you've caught the most excellent expression .. that man is a great model and congrats for getting up the courage to ask if you could take his pic ..
love the far away look in his eyes and your great processing .. :)
ps .. my brother is a brilliant rally driver & restored an old volvo which he races .. doesnt have a standard engine in it tho .. he does the targa tasmania and other stuff as well .. anyhooo on saturday he was racing on a track near where we live called Oran Park .. i took a few shot altho i didnt get any real good ones coz i was zoomed out too far .. thought i'd crop when i got them in photoshop but i was just too far away to get a good quality image when cropped .. anyway i put three shots of him in flickr and a couple of other cars .. check them out .. i was thinking of you when we were there and the great shots you take ..
i got a real blast taking the photographs especially coz my brother was racing .. i'd love to do some dirt track shots now .. more exciting .. !!! ..:)

You've brought out the character in his face wonderfully.
