The missing portrait
A few years ago I the pleasure to be invited to Saint Petersburg to show «El Ring», a short movie on young Cuban boxers.
Of course I visited the Hermitage museum. I brought along a Leica M6 with the 50 mm Summilux.
This image was shot on slide film.
I followed this couple from exhibition room to exhibition room for more than 30 minutes.
They never noticed me as they were concentrated visiting this unique museum.

Bechak driver in the rain
«Neither wind nor rain nor heat stops these bechak drivers from the swift completion of their task».
The wind picked up.
The rain was approaching fast.
I quickly covered my camera with a plastic bag that I put between my chest and my t-shirt and I rode my bicycle to the location that I had scouted before.
When I returned home, I was soaking wet.
The camera survived.
I caught a cold.
