Day 5 - Experience is the teacher of all things...

Pin It, according to documents, were the wise words of Julius Caesar. I've long been a fan of Roman history and when I spotted this fine looking chap in the museum shop at the Vatican in Rome I couldn't resist but to have him unceremoniously packed up and shipped home. A somewhat ironic nod to his landing on the shores of Britain, taking what he wanted and packing it off home before leaving again!
He caught my eye as I arrived home this evening from a few days away working. Simple composition, some lighting, shallow depth of field, focused on the eyes for maximum portrait impact. It works for me and 361 days to go and the challenge continues. The die is cast (he said that too).
