-Inner Strength- (BW Shots of a Male Human Adult + Face)

Challenge #113 in the I'm Only Human, Of Flesh and Blood I'm Made... series. Hosted by ConanFuji.
Challenge has finished
Last year I held a challenge called Inner Beauty which challenged entrants to depict this subjective phrase. This time around, take a shot of a scene with a human adult male as the main subject. The main subject must be visibly at least 1/4 of the height or width of the photo area. It would be preferable (but not compulsory) for entrants to provide some info on your entry.

Seems like this old man from Shanghai didn`t have the easiest life, but he definitively has a strong and peaceful aura, that somehow lifts him up high. This is reflected in the perspective and the diagonal line leading upward.
