Behind The Lens

Location
My grandparents, whom I don't get to see often, came to visit and we always have to try out the best restaurants in town. On our way to a new burger join that is 'famous' in North Dakota, I noticed the cool contrast between the dark shadows and the brighter water drops and snow on the window behind my grandfather. Old age and it's effects tell a great story in my opinion.
Time
It was a cold, windy, overcast day around noon.
Lighting
Lets just say it wouldn't be as interesting of an image if I hadn't done black and white.
Equipment
A Lumix fz300.
Inspiration
I always enjoy seeing black and white portraits of people, especially when details like wrinkles and emotions are present.
Editing
Simple shadow adjustments and black and white conversion.
In my camera bag
Now that I have gotten into 35mm SLRs I have two more camera bodies (Minolta x-700 and srt101) with a mc-rokkor 50mm 1.4 / rokkor 135mm 2.8 / gemini MC 28mm 2.8 along with my point and shoot 'dslr'
Feedback
Be patient and wait for a moment that captures thought, emotions, action, or a detail you find pleasing!
