This is the first picture I’ve edited from my recent trip to Ireland.
The old man was playing the harmonium in a lateral street in the center of Limerick, and I’ve been captured by the early afternoon light and the intense expression of the man.
I took few pictures with a rather long focal length, and then went to see the man, to give him some money and ask if he was OK with my pictures.
Before I could say a word, he asked me if I was from the press or something similar. When I answered that I was just taking pictures for my pleasure, he started discussing about photography and the fact that he also owned few cameras in his youth, and he ended up telling me funny jokes about Irish robbers and policemen… it has been really a pleasure to have a talk with him, and of course he had no problems at all with my pictures.
This is the one I liked the most from the series I have taken. What do you think? In fact, this is one of my first attempts at street photography…
