I used to be a king
"I used to be a king. And everything around me turned to gold." - Graham Nash
Well, he is not really a king. Maybe a king of his castle in Sydney. I met Chris years ago in Northern Italy. I think I took this portrait in Lake Garda while we were having dinner. I like how he turned his head and looked away. His hair cut reminded me of a Roman Ceasar. He had the perfect profile for it. Italian nose. A bit of stubble. Years of wrinkles. Sad eyes. What was on his mind? Yea, maybe he used to be a king.
I shot this with my 24-70 mm EF lens on a Canon 5D mk ii. Why is this significant? Because that would be the last time I would haul this camera on travels. It got so heavy for me that it led to my sciata attack. This I will not forget.
