Hugged by the summer's coolant


Hands can express the character and the mood of people. They are vital part for many portraits, as they add more power especially when the face is cropped or not shown.



A kid dancing on the beach with other people while listening to music. Taken in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt. I went there for vacation with my friends in August '07. During post-processing, I felt an urge to make it an old film-like photo.

Note: the summer's coolant = sea :P
