The perfect stranger

Posted in France, Portrait

Sometimes I see someone and say to myself, that person is unique. This happened again a few weeks ago, I observed this man in the bar we (me and my wife) visit in summer and said, well that’s an interesting face. Sometimes… miracles happen, he is leaving and looks at my Fuji X Pro1 which clearly looks very old with all the signs of use. He invites us for another drink and we start to talk about the weather and other things… it is time to pick up that good old camera and capture some impressions…

Normally I just press one or two times the button. I found out that this is more than enough, here I pressed 8 times and show my selection of four.

After the drinks we’ve shared I promised him to bring some prints next days, they still are here… till today I did not see him again.

    Quite nice. I especially like the 1st photo where the other ‘stranger’ in the background is watching with what looks like a smile. A canonical street photo.

    Lovely catch!… He has something rather sensitive – I love his eyes… Warm with a touch of irony… 🙂
