Old Man Walking
Old Man Walking - I was exploring the old city in the middle of Katmandu, Nepal.  I turned one corner, and walking VERY slowly in front of me was this old man. I walked up in front of him on the other side of the street, looking for a good backdrop to shoot him. Ten feet in front of him were these bright painted doors. I thought I was dreaming, the color combination of his clothing and the wooden doors was perfect, old and worn just like him. I just waited for him to walk past the doors. I fired three frames, and stopped shooting when I saw he was aligned with the center of the doors, the center of the photo. ( 2015 John Berry. No usage permitted without prior written consent.
