The photographer is a lonely hunter

Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Marcos H

Ghent. January 1, 2011. Early morning and drizzling. My brother and I went walking around the deserted city. He is a professional photographer. I am a retired psychiatrist. He had his Canon 5D hanging on his side. He was walking in front of me. I had a puny Canon PowerShot. To me he looked like a hunter after his prey. Julio objects to be called a hunter of images. Actually, the title is a reference to McCullers' book. My son, also a professional photographer, calls this image "Holden Caulfield, grown up and roaming Europe" or "Ripley posing as a photographer."

Location: Ghent, Belgium.
