An attempt at a vintage style of photo. I took it some time back.

I like it! In this case I think black and white works quite well.

Iíve loved Armies since childhood and that composition helps me further understand why.  Itís interpretive.  The visible rifling and the hat complete that shot.

Well done, Scooby.

The world was black and white when I was younger, at least my grandkids think so.
They fiquired that, because all photos I show them of my kids days are black and white.
Hey Grampa when did the world get color?
Thanks Scooby for the memories........
