This image was taken when I began to experiment with digital years ago with a Canon G6 (7 MP). I have always been hesitant to enter it because of the rudimentary camera used (by today's standards) and the fear of snubbing by gearheads However, it remains a favorite in my B&W collection. It has been displayed in gallerys locally at 16x20 size and poeple are amazed that it was taken with so few MPs. It is testimony to the fact that it is light and timing that are of greatest importance.
I came upon this scene while driving a small, lonely one and a half lane road in the Dordogne River valley. The light only lasted momentarily and I was able to nudge my car onto a slight shoulder. No sooner than I began to photograph, a police car began to squeeze past and I thought they would engage me in a conversation I would not understand. Instead I got a friendly nod and wave as they passed.
