FUJIFILM X-E1 1/52 second F/1.4 ISO 800 53 mm (35mm equiv.)

I do not regard myself as a photographer. I'm an ordinary man but extraordinarily obsessed with capturing all the memorable scenes that I encounter in my everyday life. It's like an excited traveller craving to record his memorable journey in a memorable way, but in my case, it's the journey of my life ... If I can record my encounters in such a way that they leave an image on the mind of myself and other viewers, it's a tremendous joy and some accomplishment...
In terms of photography, I'm trying to preserve the moments as my eyes see "something" and my heart feels it too. As such, I seldom feel interested in planned, arranged or manipulated photographs...

Superbe scène de rue, la lumière et le cadrage sont splendides. Bonne journée.

The back of the in all-white character holds the wall more than the contrary, it seems, and i like this balance of yours with the meeting on its way with the 2d person coming. The pavement itself seems a wave of concrete. All is quiet here and yet one expects some suspensful enquiry !

A hole story that would need lots of sentences and words is resumed in a spectacular image. A wonderful lecture about composition and right opportunity and timing. Superb.
