About the Work
This image was made during a long period when I
had just started using antique Leica۪s. I always had one around my neck looking
somewhat like a tourist. I was wearing it as I rode the movable sidewalk I
noticed the flight attendant racing to get to the other side. When the camera
is in this position my hands are always fiddling with it, setting the focus and
the aperture to match the location and the situation. Without thinking the
camera went to my eye and I snapped the photo. I know I had it immediately.
That always feels great.
