Flickr a Day 83: ‘Slowly Awakening’

‘This stream tells the recent story of my life”, the Italian going by moniker depinniped says. “Things that happen to me, but mostly people that I happen to know, that I love, that I live with, that I go out with, which are friend or family or just acquaintances. I like Alfred Steiglitz‘s view of photography as ‘a distinctive medium of individual expression'”.

The portrait that depinniped shot on Feb. 9, 2011 isn’t unique style, but something about the subject’s pouty lips and downcast eyes and the overall composition grabs me—and I hope you. He captured self-titled “Slowly Awakening” using the Panasonic DMC-LX1, which is a digital compact. But he uses the Hipstamatic app on a smartphone for more recent compositions. Photo vitals: f/2.8, ISO 80, 1/20 sec, 6.3mm.

Depinniped joined Flickr in December 2006 but is no longer active. He now regularly posts to Instagram.
