On Mother's Day, our family went to a wonderful event at The Thyme Garden in Alsea. There were several musical groups who played. This African Drummer was waiting to perform. As those of you who know my work know, I rarely do portraits. However, I found him to be extraordinary.

Yes, he is extraordinary. Well done, especially since you are shy when it comes to portraits, but why the halo? I'd like to see this image without it.

Excellent candid portrait. The B&W is perfect for the image. The vignetting seems a bit extreme, though.
