WPC: Humanity


This photo is from 2010 (Helsinki). I was walking around my neighborhoods when I noticed this man sitting on a bench. He seemed be so relaxed that I had to ask permission for a photo and luckily I got it. This is the one those few moments when I dare to ask permission from a stranger. I should be more brave in this kind of matters cause I think “normal” people on their daily act  are interesting. Link back to Daily Post’s WPC

  1. I just visited your beautiful hometown last month for the first time and I cannot wait to return. I understand very well how you feel about approaching strangers who inspire you photographically. When I am able to overcome my shyness, it’s usually related to inspiration overwhelming the fear. That’s what it looks like must have happened here. I would have asked for a photo, as well. I love his relaxed demeanor, the laugh lines around his eyes and mouth, the juxtaposition of athletic clothes next to a cigarette and beer! Oh, look! There’s a little stuffed animal (probably a keychain) hanging from his pocket! The innocence of that with the graffiti and overrun garden in the background, ah…It’s a great photo! I’ll so look forward to following your work!
    Best to you! Renate
