Roger


As a youth in Maine, Roger was a boxer.  Today
he lives in Naples and rides a bicycle about 150 miles a
week, 20 - 30 miles a day.

Not bad for an 82-year old man.

Good on Roger for staying active and fit. Good on you for taking such a great portrait of Roger!

82 seriously ! Roger looks the picture of health.. I can't remember the last time I rode a bike, I really must take it up again :) excellent portrait shot Jack.

82 is still a ways off for me... time for a nap though. hahahaha
Nice portrait.

He looks terrific and certainly not 82!! My physician here in Portland is 80 and still practicing!! He doesn't look that old either! Great shot for the day, as always, Jack! Enjoy your weekend!!

Madge Bloom said...

Looks like he's happy and healthy... I've always felt out of control on a bike, give me a horse any day!

William Kendall said...

A good portrait!

He looks at least twenty years younger than he is!

Great portrait with so much history behind it.

The Happy Boxer. Great portrait. :)

He looks very fit. Good man. You seem to be taking some good edgy shots lately, Jack. I must endeavour to find some new viewpoints in mine.

RedPat said...

I hope to be that fit when I hit that age! He sure doesn't look 82 - I guess it's the new 62. ;-))

82 or not, I'll not be picking a fight with him! Great portrait, Jack.

Good grief, I don't think I could do that...

Taken For Granted said...

Twenty to 30 miles a day is a serious rider. Would not like to step into the ring with him either. He looks to be in great shape.

Those are some glasses.

I admire people who are in such good shape. :)

Wowsers!

Bob Crowe said...

Great sense of energy. I should be so lucky when I'm 82. The last time I rode a bicycle, which has been a while, I needed a steroid shot in my knee.

Roger that.

Rides a bike every day and can still manage a smile. Love this portrait. You've caught him perfectly!

Very impressive.

He looks like he still has lots of vinegar left in him.
