An old salesman was standing and smoking outsides of his shop. A photograph is often a secret and a story about a life. The more it tells you the less you know.
This is my first black white photo with an analog Nikon D90. It`s caused by pure coincidence. I asked him to throw the bottle in the air, while I pressed the shutter button of the camera. The photo was made exact at the moment when the bottle was in front of his face.
Yesterday I had the great opportunity to start a conversation with this older gentleman. After a while, after we gain sympathy for both, I take the chance to take a portrait of him. His eyes capture my imagination and his face tells more stories than words can say.
