  1. Dear Peter,
    I find this picture of particular relevance. I could just say that it is beautiful, but I want to add a little more depth to my comment. Composition and timing are spot on, considering that you were pretty close to the action. Photographic language is disclosed here at its core principles; no ‘applied aesthetics’ is needed to reinforce the visual message. Not an easy task.
    It seems you had the chance of traveling, using the M8 time to time, and enjoying a set of relatively unobstructive lenses. These are all details that I can interpret as healthy indicators of experiencing (and having fun with) photography at best.
    From what I can say, it is all that’s counts for me. I spent one year and a half shooting film only (because I was disappointed by the digital photographic means), and a few months without shooting at all. Now I feel better… ☺
    This is why I hope my ramblings are not too far from the truth, as I simply love your work (and I can safely say that I’m not the only one).

    My very best wishes for you and your beautiful family
    M

    1. Dear Matteo, nice to hear from you again. Thank you for your compliment.

      I’m pleased that you noticed the simplicity here – from the equipment chosen to the final “output”. And yes, I was having fun!

      Incidentally, you are correct about the timing — it’s one of the most difficult action shots I’ve ever photographed.

      Peter.
