Waiting for the Hebrides Ferry

Waiting for the Hebrides Ferry

I am working on more brooding Scottish landscapes but just to lighten things up, here is a snapshot taken while waiting for the ferry from Skye to Uist (in the Hebrides).

It is just a moment caught. The unstudied pose, the natural setting, the young man so caught up in his music as to be unaware of the public nature of his exposure. I zoomed in and then cropped the image slightly for better composition.

Sony DSC H50 at about 110mm equivalent. F4.0 @ 1/320 @ ISO 100. Programed Auto.

From Scotland.

    Me, au contraire, I do consider that the objects of the musician are there in a perfect place, giving consistence at the artist’s condition.
    the Germans are calling this “Habseligkeiten”. Like “Every little thing without which my life is incomplete”. Like the latin “Omnia mea mecum porto”.
