PEOPLE 262 – WOMAN WITH BLUE NAILS
April 15, 2017 4 Comments
As so often happens, a grab shot – time for only one, very quick shot – as passing traffic momentarily slowed down. Luckily I had the camera set to spot metering linked to the active autofocus point, something I’m using quite a lot at the moment. And the telephoto zoom was fully extended. I just raised the camera to my eye, it found focus on her hand almost instantaneously, and I fired.
What do I think about this image? Well, a passing soul, a passing someone, a stranger to me as I am to her, someone going somewhere. But now, I suppose, part of a design, resting her fingers upon – or is she helping support?! – a curving metallic blueness set in a photographically enhanced darkness. And if I could produce more such images, of beings in artificial, abstract realities, I would.
