Chance, timing and the surprise of photography

A chance encounter in a Hong Kong Subway in 2005

I made ┬áthis picture in a subway under one of the major roads in Hong Kong in 2005. I don’t remember the specifics of it, but it was a happy accident and I’ve never been able to recreate or create a similar image to it.

Photography can be a gift giver, this image a point in case. So even armed with the data needed to recreate this, I doubt I could. I am always pleased when the one eyed machine called a camera revels the world in new and mysterious ways, it would be wonderful if it happened more often.

Sadly this was made at a time when digital storage was prohibitively expensive, compared to analogue storage and has only been kept as a small file. As a consequence it will never been printed, large anyway. Perhaps in a small book. We shall see?
