Reflecting

I was running to catch a tram in Budapest when I saw this lady waiting on the platform.  In the midst of the bustle of the city, she seemed lost in thought. I snapped one shot and hopped on the tram.

Magnum Photo is celebrating the 100th anniversary of Robert Capa’s birth by posting each day a photo taken by Robert Capa.   They are inviting photographers to submit a visual response to their Capa photo selection.

         “If your pictures aren’t good enough, you’re not close enough.”     Robert Capa

This picture is my visual response and was taken with the Fuji x100s.  I slightly cropped and processed in LR5 and Adobe CC.

  1. Beautiful portrait, and it’s always about the thoughts; the subjects possible thoughts, the photographer’s thoughts, the viewer’s possible thoughts. So much of this kind of photography is about trying to evoke, capture or express either people’s day-to-day thoughts or whatever drives them. Capra knew that.
