Sepia Saturday 163
A Big Thank You To Bob
After a careful look at this week's theme image I decided to go with white whiskers of the old gent with the snow shovel. However, Bob Scotney's John George Brown's painting eventually lead to a change of approach, if not theme. The subject is clearly 19th. century, but the concept seems quite modern or, perhaps timeless. I was particularly taken with the painting and, therefore, decided to look him up. Whilst, he is mainly known for his paintings of street urchins, he also painted grown-up and, lo and behold, white whiskers. I know they're not Sepia nor Photos, so I've included some white whiskers of the family.
