Well done! Resting man is great – that fold in the jacket tells such a story. It’s nice juxtaposed with the other images. Puts me back on the LES.
Thank you! I agree that the jacket folds, pressing up against the bars as they do, are very expressive. The angle of his upper body also makes a strong contribution to the narrative.
Resting man makes me feel sad. His shirttail sticking out from under his jacket reinforces that feeling for me as a sign that he’s no longer in control.

Thanks Linda. It’s interesting to me how these small details add up to a portrait — accurate or not — that may be just as revealing as his face.
