Sometimes, a photo does not turn out to be the photo you wanted it to be. There can be several reasons, but most of the time, I guess over 95%, it’s because I don’t have the concentration and attention to make the photo a success. Like this photo. I was too hasty, forgetting about camera settings, leaving the camera on JPEG, ISO1600, underexposed and backlit, with a lousy composition with a second guy doing ‘something’ in the lower right corner. So, I forgot all about photography and what photography is about: some attention for what you see….

I saved it by giving it a newspaper look in 6×7 format, and a ‘fitting’ photocopy look by pushing the noise. Yes, it’s a lie. But at least it’s a creative lie….
