Story behind the photograph
Following my recent posting of Imagine no possessions digital photograph some people commented that I should have asked the homeless man to pose for the photo. Initially I knocked back the idea as I like to capture the moment – expression and situation. However, pride took better of me and I have found this man again. I have asked him for a pose and he gladly agreed. I must say I was pleasantly surprised how easy it turned out to do.
He surprised me once more just a moment later, seeing the lens pointed at him from very close (less than a metre) he looked straight into it and gave me smile.
Yes, I know the photo has big, blown regions courtesy of midday sun. Never the less I really like the way it turned out.
