Bob Laughed Till He Cried by EarthHart Bob Laughed Till He Cried by EarthHart
By now, you all know about Bob. He just couldn't get round the fact that his portrait was painted in coffee. This was the last shot I took that day.

The painting can be seen @ [link]

That is great, I am pleased he loves it so much,
I did see your comment about what happened
to him, it is so wrong that they never caught
who did that to him! No, I disagree!

You are very welcome my dear Will! :love:

It's a shame that they weren't caught, and sent down for life, for Bob has lost his :cry:

Oh yes! :nod: I also have to say Will that I don't
agree with the comment about the background.
I think it is just right and helps make this a great
portrait as when you look at it your focus is on the
person, in this case Bob rather than having a really
distracting background which is how it should be! :nod:

I'm not bothered by the background. I was only after Bob, and the moment :D

I knew the 'laugh' part but not the 'cry' part. Makes me a bit sad. :(

It seems now Bob has a character that people followed, just like in the movies. I compiled all his photos and they make me feel like looking at a picture story or book about his life and like everyone else, I am compelled to follow what's next. I hope this moves everyone else or promotes awareness against violence if not somehow help to find those who are responsible for his condition.

So sad... :( do you have any photos of Bob before the incident?
Reply
:iconearthhart:
EarthHart Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
He cried with happiness :D though I know what you mean.

I'm so glad you did the portrait, as it was most responsible in achieving
Bob's fame than my photos. Bless you, Nelsie :iconsnuggleplz:
It's been around 17yrs since Bob was beaten up, and no one has been
arrested for the crime. I doubt that they ever will be brought to book.
