1. Mary’s portraits on Flickr

I would be interested in yours (or anyones) thoughts on the small group of 3 photos I had put on Flickr (link below). My Flickr sign in is ‘Mary Swift’


…The last of the 3 has a distracting background I know. While observing this engrossed chap – it was clear to me that he was doing some kind of puzzle/crossword and seemed to be making progress…

…Question: can these shots really be described as portraits??

All thoughts welcome, and please be as critical as possible!

Kind Regards,

  1. I think you have really captured this man in deep concentration, the background is not too distracting but the picture with the other man (is it a reflection?) works well. He is also in deep concentration, it looks like he might be doing the same crossword / sodoku.

  2. Here’s my flickr site
