NEW: Prints of the above photo now available!

Just the two of us in the mist of eternity!

A photo of an anonymous couple I took in Lisbon, Portugal
a few days ago. The suspended structure in the background
is the "25 de Abril Bridge" connecting the city of Lisbon to the
municipality of Almada on the south bank of the Tejo river...

If you wish, you can see a detail HERE.

This picture has been shot with the Samsung Smart Camera

'We Are In It Together' is an emotive work that seems to suggest the potential of love to sail life's stormy seas inseparably together. The bright, red clothing that contrasts against a grim background seems to emphasize to the viewer the concept of finding that little bit of chivalry and beauty in such a grey environment.

While it is not uncommon to see a desaturated image with a hint of colour still left within the frame, the work is able to exceed the 'norm' of such a technique due to the minimalist-like approach of colouring the figure. Therefore, while the red figure becomes a focal point in comparison to the rest of the work, it does not distract from the subtle detail in the surrounding environment.

A beautiful work overall!

Very pretty. I really like the red, it draws my attention. I also like how the background is very awesome, but does not take away from the importance of the couple :)

Sometimes, one coloured detail just looks like "good intention, but nothing achieved" - not in your case, though.
The mantle pops out without attracting too much attention - once more, wonderful work :)
