Just a candid of interesting looking chap that I grabbed outside an 'alternative' bookstore. I have no idea if he is really a poet, but I noticed him chatting to a small group of people when I first passed the store and he was still at it an hour later as I passed by again. I just kinda got the impression he was a writer.

As ususal, nothing advanced about my editing. RAW file taken to ACDSee Pro and straightend and cropped slightly. Desaturated to B&W, adjustments made to contrast and exposure. Resized, added border, sharpened.
