This image might not look like much. A roughly 12 year old posing with a model aeroplane and a can of Coke. But, it is representative of why many people actually take photos. For memories. Back around the time this photo was taken, that was often on compact film cameras.
I’m a Leica Street photographer. I am, by my own admission a gear nut, but I don’t buy gear just to test it or pixel peep. I’m only interested in the art that can be produced with the gear. And seeing what emotions can be brought out in those who see my photos.
