He has seen the light smile
Picturit: Maybe so, Cherry. In the comments I learned that he was blind, little did I know..
Joli buste, il a un air altier.
Picturit: Thank you, Martine.

He is in the abode of a serious person Astrid

Either that, or he's lost..
Picturit: I think he might be very serious and I learned from Philine he was blind too.

a fine image - I recognised Homeros immediately, I saw him also in the Long Hall in Trinity College in Dublin, he is blind ...

Are you already back to Nederland?
Picturit: Yes we came back on Tuesday evening and still caching up. Thank you Philine for your information.
I'm learning from Philine that he is blind, which I didn't know. In that case, the shining light is even more powerful!
Picturit: Little did I know, Ginnie when I captured him somewhere here in Gorinchem. Yes, the light is more powerful here now.

You don't miss much, Astrid!
Picturit: Sometimes it is a blessing sometimes it is a burden (not missing much) Thank you, Lisl.
Not a bit like Homer Simpson grin

This is a fine picture beautifully lit Astrid.

I have plans for the pig when I can find a couple of screws smile
Picturit: No, he does not look like him at all grin.. Thank you, Bill.
I should have put some screws with it... glad you like it. I will fit great at the door smile

How annoying, that sun is right in my eye and it happens every morning. Glad you and G are back home safely Astrid.
Picturit: grin... Things like that happen...
Thank you, Chad. The flight back was great and fast... like Chad-Air predicted that might happen this flight...wink
Thank you, Chad.
Echt een leuk beschut plekje om te filosoferen smile
Welkom terug
Picturit: Dank je wel, Marjolein. Ja, een rustig plekje in de vensterbank.

I see his nose is a different colour. Maybe someone was pulling him along, frequently.
Picturit: Maybe so, Louis. I learned from Philine he was blind, little did I know.
I would never have known who.
Picturit: It was on the buste, otherwise I would not have known, but Philine did smile

Looks to be a learned scholar. If I squint, it almost looks like this week's birthday boy smile
Picturit: HA, yes indeed, I don't think he ever had a nice birthday party and cake like our "birthday boy" grin...
A fine head!
Picturit: I thought so too, Tom. The light took me in.
Quite an interesting figurehead to have in the window.
Picturit: I thought so too, Brian. I love the light.

WHAT does he see? He must be looking inward..wasn't he blind?
Picturit: Yes Bonnie, Homerus was blind so I think he only saw the light and that is more than some people do.

Love this composition, Astrid.
Picturit: Thank you, Ray. It was the light that attracted me.
Picturit: Indeed so, Sheila and blind too....
What a wonderful find and capture... love this!
Picturit: Thank you, Elizabeth, sometimes when I walk the streets I look up, you never know, and there he was...
