The look I was going for here would be called, weathered. What a wonderfully photographic face this sailor has…I really liked the texture of his beard. Normally, I wouldn’t process a person this way. However, sticking with my theme for the week, I was trying to convey the look and feel of life on the Mayflower in 1620. I imagine they all looked a bit gritty and weathered after their 66 day journey. As you can see I left some of the color in this image instead of making it completely sepia toned. I liked the look of the red shirt.
Unfortunately, I did not catch this sailor’s name. I did hear him say that he was from England and had been hired as a crew member for the Mayflower. He went back to England when the Mayflower made it’s return trip in May, 1621.
