Portraits in Pixels

It’s cold in Canberra, much is afoot, much of it boring. But it’s raining, and that’s always good news. I’ve just dropped a dear friend off at the airport, knowing we probably won’t see each other for maybe 5 months. During that time we will both be overseas, and the world is full of surprises.
I’ve just read that the Iraq war is costing $12B per month, and you can bet that those costs don’t stay at home. As with the sub-prime mess, the phrase to remember is: capitalising gains, socialising losses.
But today all I have to share is some pixels, portraits of people I love. No names, just faces. A point in time. I hope you enjoy them.
A wanderer…where is he going?

A true Odalisque, but perhaps Matisse wouldn’t appreciate the comparison:

A troubadour, full of life and music:

A teacher, and a traveller:

Finally, a lost soul:

  1. The lost soul does indeed exhibit rugged handsomeness and intensity of spirit.It is a shame that he did not realise his potential.Our hedonistic lifestyles do not necessarily bring out the best in us.
    My advice?Take nothing for granted and do the best with what you’ve got.Life is too short.

  2. Thanks, Arjay, I’ll tell him that. That guy in the first pic is also lost, but he thinks he’s moving in a straight line.
