To capture a portrait you need to bring the character of your subject and their surroundings to the image. In this case, I photographed my grandfather, Harry, in his last years. This was taken in 1976. He had a habit of taking short walks in his neighborhood. As a proper gentleman in his late 80s, he would dress up before being seen in public. As you examine the image you will notice his character in the details, as in the streamers on his cane.
