3 seconds

Sometimes you just can’t help it. You react to these kind of moments almost automatically. Of course each of us has their own trigger moments they respond to and this one had all characteristics of mine.

While walking towards the city centre, I saw this quite scruffy looking person standing on the corner. My first reaction was to just keep walking as I don’t feel comfortable shooting people in vulnerable situations… Few seconds later, I changed my mind.

Perfectly illuminated by strong morning light, he suddenly stroke this poetic pose and stayed like this for about 3 seconds. In this brief moment, his image changed completely and he looked more like an artist or a craftsman, deep in his thoughts.
