Leica M6 & Summicron 50mm & Ilford XP2.

These single use threads cheese me off a bit, because I love paging through photos, so I propose an open thread for everyone.

I'll start with these two.

Wow, when I see eyes like that I don't know whether I want a glass of wine or a cup of tea. Either way, I want to chat with her. For me the whole point of portraits is to at least try to capture the character of the person. And in this case (Ok, I don't *really* know this lady with the soulful eyes) I think I already know her, somehow.

Excellent pickie, congratulations.

Gorgeous. We have three boys... which is because we kept trying to see if a girl might come next!

And a fabulous shot, I must say.

And this one looks like a copy and paste of my second boy. Great capture of a *big* personality.
