Top 20 Photos of 2013 -- #11

Today's edition of the Kuantan Blog's Top 20 Challenge:


July 2013, Amsterdam. My brother-in-law listening to his mother answer the judge's question:
Why do you think your son asked you to be a witness to his marriage?
The photo itself isn't special except for the fact that it's among maybe 10 others (of over 60) I shot
that didn't come out blurry. I was shooting without a tripod and without flash (I hate flash), more an
experiment than actual documentation--witness the professional photographer behind the groom.
But it's special--very, very much so--to me because of the moment, the raw emotion.
The little boy inside the man.

  1. Not often you see a man cries but when they do, it is priceLESS.

    1. Indeed, Duncan. Maybe I shouldn't have un-hidden the story--might've made the shot all the more intriguing ;) Thanks for the visit!

    2. Perhaps, but I really do believe a story behind a picture multiplies its worth
