years ago while photographing in an abandoned temple in india….
i found myself the subject of a curious group of young men….they had gathered
behind me & watched as i photographed….i was a bit nervous….alone in a foreign
country….although there was a language barrier, i gestured to them to get into my
shot (which the happily obliged)….the beauty of that moment for me was profound…
i had turned an uncomfortable moment into photograph that i have cherished ever
since…there was no staging at all, other than my suggesting they get in the shot…
they spread out & stood like this on their own, i could not have planned it better…
the beauty of perspective lies in how you look at a situation….xoxo

 

a little more sweetness...
