girls don’t bite

Somewhere late 2004 or early 2005, we had friends and their girls over for a visit. I’ve been following them around for a while with my camera and after while they stopped noticing me. At some point, the younger girl took a toy from her big sister, something that wasn’t appreciated at all. Following was a bite in her hand by her sister.


Of course I was glad to have been around, shooting the ordeal. It was around that period, that I wanted to be able to capture ordinary, real life events and this was one the first results of it. It was contradictory at the same time, I knew I had to act (which I did later), but I wanted the shot too, so I pressed the trigger first.


This was shot with a Nikon F80 and a AF Nikkor 50/1.8D. The film was Tri-X, pushed to 800 ISO, developed in HC110(b)
