I have decided to try and partecipate in the photographic contest "the assignment", sponsored by Canon.
Even if I have shot technically better portraits, I thought that this one was one of the most spontaneous, plus it suited the theme well:
"[…] Are you able to capture pure emotion in a single shot? Can you portray a person's life-story with one photograph? […]"
The other I considered, the picture of the Arrotino would have been a person's life story… but that was shot with an old film camera, a Pentax…. I thought it might not be seen that well in a Canon contest…
But this picture – it is about emotions.
It is about having fun no matter your age.
Who says when we grow up we must be serious ?
So I called it "Youth is a State of Mind".
Anyway, the picture is posted here:
If you like it, please vote for it – after the 5th of May when the votes will be actually open.
