This shot of the day represents a landmark moment in my photography.
I love Street Photography and in the spirit of all the great photographers who came be for me, this image captures for me, a defining moment. Since I lost the hearing in both ears, my communication has suffered to the degree that I didn't want to go out and face people.
As a sufferer of Tinnitus, the noise in my head can be very loud and I can't even hear my own voice. Studying photography has taken me out of my head, back into the world of living.
Life for me occurs in conversation with others.
This image began with me initiating a conversation, lip reading and responding.
The shot came by asking.
A big thanks to these two generous gentlemen.
