A Basque and his baguette

How representative of the Basque people if not for their ubiquitous beret and a delicious baguette. I followed this man for some time if the hopes of capturing his essence while the details were made later. I hoped to portray his expression which was a combination of sadness, fatigue, old age, and probably general nostalgia for the young man he once was. I know the feeling.
