The little girl walked into the photo as I was setting up my camera on a tripod to take a self-timed photo of my wife and me. Scanned kodachrome 64. Taken on Corsica.

    The girl gives a nice balance in this picture……this must have been a while ago judging by the surounds?

  • The back streets of Corsica are frozen in time, they will never see restoration or a paintbrush again…this was taken 20 years ago, just about the time when the first E-6 slide, processing arrived.
    Thanks for looking!

    Lovely gritty photo! The girl adds a lovely random element to the scene.

  • Thank you very much. Yes, it was lucky the girl walked in.
