The Bicycle and Sparrow

The cycle caught my eyes first, then the rest of the scenery and along came the Sparrow. There are times when looking through the options of what to select, how to frame/compose the scene and when to pull the trigger all cram together in an instant or take a too long. The Sparrow made this image come to life for me. Sure the buildings textures, colours and proximity to the bike were the original reason for the shoot. I liked the cobble stone street shone in this Saint Malo France location. In fact every time I pass the bookstore where the owner of the bike operates his shop, I remember shooting the Sparrow. Something about returning to the scene of a once fine time from one's past. Other images have their own kind of attachment. Lighting, local, smell(a), purpose, history, danger, culture, are just a few of the ingredients that make something matter. The Sparrow made this matter all the more for me, how about you?
