I'm doing a series called One Shot Wonder, where I publish one image I think is good enough to stand on its own. Not a group of pictures, no friends to it, just one strong image. No shitty phone pictures, no leftovers, no self portraits. One quality image that doesn't fit in with anyone else, but nonetheless, looks amazing on its own. I don't want to do one of these every week, or try and capture just one image, I want it to come naturally, without planning and trying.
A young couple kissing goodbye on a bus stop before the boy got on the bus. It was 7 am this morning and I was heading from Kotka to Helsinki, and back up north from there. It was a chilly but beautiful morning, and I had a couple minutes to wait before the bus would arrive, so I dug out my little Fujifilm x100f, which I keep near, while the big camera was tucked in the backpack. Just as I though I would take a picture of the rising sun and workday traffic, the young couple started kissing. How perfect! I shot this from the hip and hoped for the best, I didn't wanna get caught taking a picture of them. I was so happy I had my camera on and I caught the shot.
