I love Portraits. I love Portraits of strangers. Even more when I ask them if I can take a picture of them and they say yes with a smile. And even more when they get interested about what i’m doing.
These two persons are the owners of the bakery right next to my apartment. Really nice people, I always go there to get my dough to make home made pizzas. One day I had my K1000 and decided to ask Gilbert if I could photograph him and he asked me “why do you want my picture?” with a smile. I told him that it was just for fun, that it was my hobby, my passion.I took the picture then we talked for a while about the neighborhood, his bakery etc. etc..
One other day I had my Minolta Hi-Matic 2 Point-and-Shoot camera to test it out (I had it for like 3-4 years on my shelf and never tried it!) and had to go there so I took her portrait.
Here’s the couple !
