Old man in suit on bench


There’s something about old men who dress up in their Sunday best for the beach. It always makes me think of days gone by, when folks dressed up to go out. It’s sort of a lonely shot, really. I couldn’t help but picture the man getting ready for his trip out, putting on his tie and jacket and checking himself out in the mirror. When I first came upon this guy, he was sitting in a bit of a different position, which would have made a fantastic photo, but by the time I got the camera up to speed and composed the shot, he’d moved slightly, making it less effective. Oh well, that’s what photography’s all about, right?
