I do not regard myself as a photographer. I'm an ordinary man but extraordinarily obsessed with capturing all the memorable scenes that I encounter in my everyday life. It's like an excited traveller craving to record his memorable journey in a memorable way, but in my case, it's the journey of my life ... If I can record my encounters in such a way that they leave an image on the mind of myself and other viewers, it's a tremendous joy and some accomplishment...
In terms of photography, I'm trying to preserve the moments as my eyes see "something" and my heart feels it too. As such, I seldom feel interested in planned, arranged or manipulated photographs...

The rest of his band must look pretty good, they'd be a big hit at the Edinburgh Military Tattoo - the Barking Brigade of the Doggy Dragoon Guards!!

@Curly: But I'm afraid he has been left alone here...:-(

Wow, light & frame are exceptional typically for that quite weird subject ! You turned it into a whole scene, theatratical one, and the geometry of the lines & shadows work so well. I'm fond of that almond green too, bravo !
