The challenge over at the Creative Exchange for 2 January 2012 was to choose your favourite photo of 2011. I think this is my favourite.
I came across a quote the other day from an Asian photographer who said this: “I used sepia to signify that we’re living in history. It’s happening all around us. Soon in a few years, people will be looking at us in the past tense”. For the same reasons I decided to render my photo in sepia. I was lucky to catch sight of this old man, who told me that his donkey was tired after the long trek up into the hills.
