The white plate really accents the entire image. Nice.

Brilliant detail indeed!
I can even see bits of his "traditional" Bavarian pants! Nobody's wearing them over here, you know?
But I guess that's the stereotypical view some Americans have of Germany whilst some dumb German's think that every American runs around in Levi's, boots and Cowboy hats!
I think this photo does have its magic and I wouldn't crop it anywhere.
Actually....I don't know if it was intentional or not, but those photos really do have that pre-war German feel to them that you see in movies from that era.
Really love your recent monochrome work!

Thanks! I've been in a black-and-white mood lately...

I did want to make sure to show a little bit of the pants. Thanks for noticing! :laughing: Don't worry, people aren't running around in Lederhosen over here. The polka bands and old men like dressing up for Wurstfest. :beer:

I have a "silly American" question: I've heard that, in Europe, if you say you're from Texas, you'll be treated better, in general, than of you say you're from the USA. Is that true? I know that's a stupid question, but sometimes I can't help myself. :laughing:

Good to see that the Germans still got some colonies abroad!!! ;-)
About the Texas-preference...I have never ever heard of that.
Did someone actually tell you that?

It's actually something I've been hearing for years, both from people who have never been to Europe, and some who actually have, and even lived there. It has been in my mind recently, as I am depressed about how our "leader" has chosen to piss off the entire planet. It saddens me to think that many people abroad think of all Americans as loud, obnoxious, self-centered dolts. Sure, many of us are, but that can be said about a percentage of all people, no matter what country they live in. Every land has its own cross section of people, spanning from good to bad.

My family is mostly Italian/Sicilian, with some Czech thrown in for good measure and green eyes. I have always felt a connection to Europe, as it is, technically, my home land, even though I have yet to visit. My ways of thinking are more European than American, as are my tastes and style. I see myself traveling abroad sometime relatively soon, and I'm afraid of being branded a fool as soon as people hear my obviously American accent. Granted, I can speak some German, but my accent isn't fluent, and my vocabulary has suffered immensely during years of non-use! I'll have to practice. :laughing:

I guess I was hoping there would be a little extra respect for us Texans... :laughing:

Oh well. Maybe I'll take you up on that Wurstfest plan sometime! :beer:

What a beautiful photo :wow: I can't believe nobody took care of commenting it. I love the details, especially the hand ... :thumbsup: Congratulations!

Thank you! I almost didn't post this one. It's missing something, although I don't know what it is. I think maybe if I cropped it tighter on the hand... Hmm.

It is well like it is, at least for me ... and the title fits well with what we see ... A detail, and a beautiful one :nod:
