Jan-1995: Portrait of an old man in the train from Predeal to Bucharest.

January 1995: This photo was taken when I was traveling from Predeal (Carpathian mountains) to Bucharest by train. I have faced several difficulties in order to make this photo. Some of them were: the moving train, the low light conditions (noon), the black & white film Azomures at 100ASA and my old camera (Russian Zenit) without light meter.

I started taking pictures in June 1994 and in my house in Bucharest I had a small dark room for developing films/photos. I remember that for that photo I over-developed the film and this is one of the reasons that the photo has big grain.

  1. You make fine BW portraits. I even like the grainy stuff - looks good with the old man...
