No, I'm not robbing him. He just lifted his arms as part of an animated lively discussion with the fellow next to him, and I got the shot. Nice to see some people still communicate in the analog way.
This is from my last trip to Copenhagen for work, spending my spare time in the evenings street shooting. What you obviously see is that I've played around adding false film grain to the structure. I've tried to imitate the Kodak Tri-X. If you are old enough to remember that film, what do you think? Do I get anywhere close?
Middle age male, father of two daughters. Makes a living as a research scientist, working at Stockholm University. I like to consider myself an open minded, fair and creative person. Like all kids I had some dream occupations. One was to be a photographer. Another, the most persistent, was to become a scientist, which I did, quite successfully. But somewhere below the surface is still that kid who wanted to travel the globe with a camera (or several and many expensive lenses). Here I will live out that part of myself.
