Breaking the Rules! [Hive Portrait Photography Contest - Week 8]

This is my entry for the Hive Portrait Photography Contest - Week 8.

This was captured around 8 years ago, on a calm afternoon when me and a couple of friends went to grab a few beers to sit down, relax and talk about life, the universe and everything.

"Never take a photo against the sun" - they said - "it's the first rule of photography."

Despite the sun being in the wrong position for a photo, I think the effect from the sun rays gave this one a nice vibe! 😎


I hope you like this shot!

Bang, I did it again... I just rehived your post!
Week 9 of my contest just can now check the winners of the previous week!

I like this shot! I even like this man! Is he available? hahahahahahahaha

I lost contact with him a few years ago. I think he moved to Paris. None of us heard anything else from him since then. 😑

Thanks for your visit.

Now I wonder who did your cartoon portrait of your banner gif? 😅. Is nice job👍

Hi! It was done by an artist that was pretty active on Steem for a while but he vanished without a word in January 2019... 🙄

I wonder why he left just like that. 🤔

I see.. I have tried do portraits like this, it is very dificult 😅 I hope the artist come back again

👀 is this you? 🤔

No, an old friend who I lost contact with... 😑

Here's an old photo of me, if you are curious:

😲 anomt made a great injustice! You don't look like the caricature-drawing at all.

Ihihihih. You really think so? 🤭
Caricatures are always exaggerated, I think it's cool.

You look like a 60 year old communist party leader 😁

Uh, oh, that ain't good. 🤣

Luckily he was not bald, else would have had 2 shining sun 😬

Ahahahhaha! Good one! You made me laugh! 😁

Experience 😁😁 now I have that male pattern baldness n face the situation often 😁
