    Great POV ~ close up makes for a great composition
    I presume it is from a large format negative

  • thanks a lot…I have to admit it is partly fake. It is digital and edited but brought those great old shots from the 60’s to my mind. WIll have to scan some and post them :)

    It is effective anyway, but it’s good to keep in touch with the old analogue traditional side / style
