Good picture.

Hans Sterkendries on November 26, 2007

Thank you. Glad you like them. I thought it would me more interesting to have a few people in the picture...

Good job Hans. I like all your street sketches

I say the same, good job Hans. I am still a bit afraid of taking pictures of people. Do you know that some indians believe that when a photo of them is taken their souls are "robbed" or "stolen" from them?

Draken on April 9, 2008

Excuse my wording. It is better to say:

...when someone takes them a photo they believe their souls are being robbed or stripped out of them?

Hi draken, I did know and I hear it's also the case for the Australian aboriginals.

I have a few (personal) basic rules about taking pictures of people. I rarely ask them to pose and often they don't even know they were in the picture. It's just: without the young couple, this would be "just another picture of El Morro".

Funny story: this couple saw me taking the picture and later insisted on posing. I've got a beautiful picture of them embracing each other with El Morro in the background.

Ils ne sont pas devenus aussi célèbres que ces deux amoureux là! ;) Amitiés, Christian

Hans Sterkendries on January 4, 2011

Merci pour la visite, Domi & Christian. Pour être exact: il ne sont PAS ENCORE aussi célèbres. J'y travaille... ;-)

Amitiés - Hans

Nice picture. "El malecon" is not "El malecon" without a couple watching the sea and without "El Morro", such a magic place, such a magic moment captured in one picture.

Hans Sterkendries on July 25, 2011

So true, AA2. These two were the perfect models...

Greetings from Belgium - Hans
