Ahmed Salman Rushdie (अह्मेड् सल्मन् रश्डि)...

first time that I can see one portrait by Martina.
sorry, don't know who is, but is brilliant!

Great portrait. I love the wrinkles on his brow.

AB said...

An interesting face, a well-executed portrait.

Sean said...

Very nice. Concentrating and expressive!

Martina said...

joanet, yes, when he became famous around here some decades ago (I think it was Midnight's Children 1981 - a book I highly recommend) we wondered if it is रश्डि oder रूश्डि - one never knows with the English transliterations, ;-).
Anyway, I do portraits of friends and family but I do not post them - I want them to be still friends and family, ;-) - but I took the opportunity last week in Paris to take photos of all the great street perfomers and street artists (and since Sean had his tea break ;-))
This guy was playing the violin in the vicinity of the famous Place du Tertre.

Great shot, Martina. You've captured the essence here. Nice!
