    Ik vind dit nog steeds een unieke en zwaar onderschatte foto!

  • Dank je wel, Eric! Jouw hulp indertijd met deze foto heeft me heel veel geleerd, en me een stuk meer zelfvertrouwen gegeven ook – Al doe ik het nog steeds veel minder dan nature – ik vind street photography toch nog altijd heel boeiend, en vaak een echte kick geven – net zoals met deze foto, toen en nu :)
