Forgotten Soldier II
9 months ago

This is the second photo of Tony, a homeless man from Bristol, UK. Tony is a veteran of the Falklands War and has never been able to deal with its aftermath.

Given it's freezing at the moment I hope he's doing ok.

Cheers,

When I saw this photo, my thought was almost exactly what Hulamike said: great photo and has really great character.

A fantastic character portrait that is nigh on impossible for me to fault.

Hi Ronan, no, I haven't produced a monochrome version, although I will be doing very shortly and will post the result.

Cheers,
