This is why i photograph!! Fleeting moments…things you have the chance to catch and otherwise would be lost. Things that happens everyday and usually there are no witnesses… I took this shot a couple years ago in Berlin. It’s a street artist getting prepared. I guess one of those living statues… For i while this image of her took me somewhere else entirely.

The first think that came into my mind when i got the email for this week’s challenge was about the tools one uses to create. From pencils to brushes from computers to wood carvers…Then i remembered this shot i took in the beginning of this year. An old sewing machine must have a lot of stories to tell. How many creations came from this one? How many sets of hands used to work on it? It’s fascinating how much story a tool can carry…

 

Well…closeness in photography is related to intimacy. If you can get too close to a person either you have a lot of guts or knows that person really well. So that’s why i’ll post a shot from my wife…it clearly show the kind of intimacy i’m talking about…one that i just dare to have with her…
