This picture is very special to me. It is probably one of the first photos I have made. And it is definitely the first one I have developped manually.
The depicted cactus was just as big as my thumb. The photograph was thought as an experiment with that expensive lens my father owned. I wanted to see whether I could really focus on one specific part of that cactus; on the front to be precise. What would happen to that cactus if I made it blur? If I cut out so much that one almost couldn’t recognize what it was anymore? I still do not know what this picture is telling me, but I like to look at it for a while. Not thinking about anything or anyone. Back then, the cactus did not mean anything to me. It still doesn’t, but the picture has become precious.
