Amazing Love

She was sad and seemed upset a minute before this moment.. + Watching the crowds from a short distance, I pointed to my friend Ben (a friend I made in Lake Bolac Eel Festival) this girl being doted by her boyfriend in an attempt to make her feel loved and said: “It’s for people like this that I come and take photos for, it’s my chance to make them smile”.. while still saying those words, I went over to the couple and asked if she’s fine.. she lightened up and smiled.. I said to her, “you look beautiful even when you’re sad”.. and turned towards her boyfriend and said, “would you please kiss her on the cheek one more time like you did earlier?”, “Here’s my card, I’ll send the pick to you”, “in case, I get a chance I’ll take few more photos later, but candid ones”.. they HAPPILY agreed.. + Yes, this is a staged shot, even the closing of her eyes, but I captured this for them.. Only as an attempt to recreate what they otherwise would’ve by being in the frame and not being able to look at it. + This reminds of the words of my…

“What’s going on?

“What’s going on?” That’s the basic question we all have.. as 4 non blondes sang: “And so I wake in the morning And I step outside And I take a deep breath and I get real high And I scream from the top of my lungs What’s going on? And I say, hey yeah yeah, hey yeah yeah I said hey, what’s going on?” Yes, this is a candid shot! And of course, I approached this gentleman right after and showed him this photo, took his permission to post this shot and have my contact card.. just in case, he’s ever curious to know in which newspaper he’s being talked about.

She Smiled

She smiled.. that’s a reason enough for me to approach someone and ask if they’d allow me to take their photo for their pleasure and my pride.
