When I’m an Old Man
Fuji x100s, 35mm, f/5.6, 1/60s, ISO 2500
My friend Steve recently introduced me to a wonderful poem by Jenny Joseph entitled Warning. It’s about a woman describing all the wild things she will do when she is old. I thought about that when I saw this man in his boxer shorts in the middle of Danshui road with a fire in front of him when it was 32°C outside. Oh, and in case you wonder why this was shot at 2500 ISO it’s because I’m stupid: three weeks ago I shot portraits of my daughter in blinding sunlight and I had to switch the in-built ND filter on to cut some of the light out. I forgot to switch it off, and only realised after that whole set of photos on Danshui Lu. You can see the full set here, if you’re interested.
