@Srujan Chennupati: That is the famous actor Jean Reno, Srujan! Thanks.

Standley from Carquefou, France

Fine capture Daryl. This french actor Jean RENO is quite appreciated in Japan I believe!

@Standley: Thanks Richard, 'Le Grand Jean' is indeed very popular in Japan, even starring in several TV commercials!

Ronnie 2¢ from Atlantic Shores, United Kingdom

Not sure what we are seeing here . . but, if that's a painting taken from the little photo, it is amazing work.

@Ronnie 2¢: That is indeed what you're seeing Ronnie - not an attempt at the kind of work you do!

The painter has talent for sure and the photographer has done a fine capture!

I like Jean Reno too...didn't know he was popular in Japan.
