Photo – Morning Walk

Saint Petersburg – Summer Garden

 8′ clock, a dad taking a walk with his daughter on the way to his work.  The lightness and candor of the little girl offsets the strictness of the dad’s figure, body and motion

The city is waking up, a dad is bringing his daughter to school. She is eagerly telling him a story, while he seems to be absorbed somewhere else. Walking fast and straight in a high pace, he seemed to be on a mission. His daughter counterbalances the seriousness of his character by a light touch of insouciance.

La ville se réveille, un père amène son enfant à l’école. Elle lui raconte passionnément quelque histoire tandis qu’il a l’air absorbé ailleurs. Gardant une vitesse et un rythme soutenu, il avait l’air en mission – sa fille compense le sérieux de son personnage avec une touche de légèreté et d’insouciance.

    Gorgeous photograph. Such a great warmth about it, and yes, the father is the contradiction in the image. It’s interesting!

    That is a really beautiful picture, I work in a school and I see people like this everyday, I would never have thought of capturing it, I suppose some times things are to close to be appreciated.
