Photographer's Note

A stormy fall day at Tisvilde Beach and I was doing some shots of my wife and my son with the beautiful waves in the background.

I was kneeling down to get the right POV and when I looked up I saw an elderly man smiling. He had been watching us and waiting to pass as he din't want to disturb the scene.

As he walked by and further up along the beach I noticed his silhout against the sunlight, and the mood hit me that he looked just the opposite of me and my family.

I don't know if he just wanted to walk by himself or if he had no family anymore or if they were just living somewhere else, but in that moment it was just a lonely walk. Not an unhappy walk, but just a walk, a walk in the fall of his life.


I followed the advice of abulafia and have posted a workshop in B & W. A very good suggestion, as it allowed me to decrease light, increase contrast and put in a little bit more contrast, all ending up in a fine mood I think.

Thanks :-)
