I somehow always wanted to make a photo of someone running or walking through a crop field. I was even planning to get my old "Jedi-style" outfit out of the wardrobe, go out somewhere around my hometown and take a few "moody" shots but somehow it never happened. I got my chance, however, when my friend Petra, with whom I traveled in China, came to Poland to visit her cousin, Gosia. Luckily, Gosia lives in Zywiec, very close to the place where my closest family lives.

 

When I went there, the girls talked me into taking a bike excursion around Zywiec so I borrowed my cousin's bike, packed my cameras along with a bottle of water and we went out together for a whole day.

 

Don't ask me why I converted it into black & white. I just felt it would suit this shot best and maybe it's just because I'm totally colour blind ;)

 

Taken with an old, cheap Chinese Seagull 4B TLR medium format camera on Fuji Reala.
