Lint – Ottawa 26.08.2017

When I started editing this photograph the man’s face wasn’t quite the way I wanted it to be from a technical standpoint but what really surprised me was the amount of lint on his sweater. Typically I would have removed it all to make the image that much better.
( or should I say “that much more acceptable.”? )

For this man in the fall of his life, as I am, I doubt that having lint on his sweater really mat- ters anymore. What I find wonderful about ageing is the knowing where our focus should be.
