Il est heureux d'être pris en photo.
Picturit: He had a whole act, Martine.
Great shot, great processing Astrid.
Picturit: Thank you, Frank. He was a hoot.
Fantastic image, Astrid!
Picturit: Thank you, Elizabeth. First he started posing for me...and after a few shots he was like this wink... he only Italian and I tried a few languages but ended up talking in Dutch to him grin.... But he knew Cruijff, Gullit and Van Basten and Ajax... more we did not need (famous soccer players and club around 1972, 1973)
WEEKEND!!!! Nothing could capture it better. I bet he really got a kick out of you Astrid! smile
Picturit: He started posing and after a few shots he was all over the place grin.
Thank you, Ginnie.

This man loves you

He probably loves every woman

He is Italian..
Picturit: I think so too, Chris. He was first posing and after a few shots he was all over the place.. He only spoke Italian and I ended just talking in Dutch to him...

Haha- what a lovely scene - it and he makes good mood! But sorry, I had wished the image in colour.

Is this chap demonstrating how he used to take ballet lessons Astrid?
Picturit: Yes indeed, Chad. First he posed and after a few shots he was all over the place. He only spoke Italian but he knew Cruijff, Van Basten and Gullit and Ajax... and of course the 6-0 loss that Ajax had to Juventus..... (a few weeks ago, Ajax won from Juventus IN Turin wink....
A man who is happy to pose for you Astrid.
Picturit: He started out posing for me, after he thought my name was Asterix (from Obelix) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asterix he started doing all kinds of stuff. I laughed so loud.... he did know some of our famous soccerplayers from the past though.
Wat een mooie bewerking van deze vrolijke charmante Italiaan.
Picturit: Dank je wel. Die man ging helemaal los, eerst netjes poseren nadat ik op mijn camera wees en toen naar hem... maar toen hij wel snapte dat ik er niets van snapte kon ik mijn lachen niet meer houden. Hij wilde weten hoe ik heette, "Asterix" neeeee, Niet Asterix en Obelix.... vandaar werd het steeds gekker. Maar Johan Cruijff kende hij nog wel.....
A man happy in his work?
Picturit: I think so and it was the end of a working day.

I love this for a b&w. Great work.
Picturit: Thank you, Louis. He was a hoot and I ended up talking Dutch to him, he did not understand anything else than Italian... and my Italian is very very poor grin...
You have your charms, Astrid, to get this pose/reaction/shot!
Picturit: Just point a big camera and they go all the way, Mary grin...
Thank you kindly.
This gentleman looks a bundle of laughs.
Picturit: He sure was, Brian.

Hahah!! Not the usual picture of a gondolier! Much more characterful.
Picturit: I think he would not make a good gondolier HA HA HA... He was fun to be with.
He was such a real Italian.

A wonderful portrait!
Picturit: Thank you, Ray. He was such a hoot.
i like his "i have nothing to hide" expression and body language, Astrid. or at least that is what i read out of it
Picturit: Indeed, Ayush. He was a hoot after I started taking pictures.
It was fun to meet him even the language was an obstacle.

Wonderful in silver and white.
Picturit: Thank you kindly, Bonnie.
Your wonderful processing makes him look a bit like a sculpture, Astrid. What a fun shot!
Picturit: Thank you kindly, Beverly. It was a fun meeting.
