[Updated: October 7th, 2011] In reviewing the site I noticed I had not uploaded a more recent version of my favorite of these three images. It was made using Nik’s Silver Efex Pro. I’ve grown to really love this image. There is something that I quite cannot pin point, but that I love about this image.
You can see more of my documentary and street photography work here.
I was waiting in the corner (inside my car) at the red light, when these two kids approached me. They were clearly commingup from the beach, shirtless with a beach ball. I took a 3 exposures, and then they saw I had some coins right by the shift. When I gave them 10 Uruguayan Pesos each (1 USD), they both immediately and in synch said ‘wow… two crackers each’ (fa!.. dos galletas para cada uno).
These images were shot with a Leica rangefinder. I have recently got into this whole new world, of more thought out, old fashion photography. I have struggled catching the moment, but as I familiarize myself and get more intimate with this was of shooting, I continue to fall deeper and deeper in love with it.
