Melancholy

France, Montpellier – August 1998

The theme for Lens-artists Weekly Photo Challenge #121 is ‘Focus on the subject’.

One from the archives. A little boy in Montpellier.

The B4 retouch series
I browsed my archive for pictures to publish. All of them are not completely retouched yet. Scratches, dust and stains are not removed.

Shot with Nikon F90 on Kodak TriX, scanned from film and edited using  Snapseed and Marksta, Click the picture for a bigger version

    I’m so glad that your photo was mentioned in this week’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #122! It’s absolutely excellent from the subject matter to the technique you used to take it. Thanks for posting!

    Chris, I like everything about your picture! The boy on the bicycle is well defined. And I think your subject and composition is excellent – framed by columns, biking on leading lines toward the background. It also poses a couple of questions, where is he going? Who is he looking for? It is great to have this mentioned in the Photo Challenge this week, #122, well deserved!

      Thank you Sylvia for your kind words. The shot presented itself and I was lucky to capture it while he stopped looked and then turned back 🙂
