Last week I entered the kitchen from my home office for a glass of water. My wife and her nephew, Alcibiades were there. The latter wore a strange cap and a towel covering his shoulders. It was raining and the temperature was cold. For a brief moment, I had the impression he was a Taliban, probably because of his cap and towel.
I rushed to my office to fetch my P&S Canon PowerShot A720 IS camera and take a picture before he changed position. At that time he was eating a fast lunch sitting on a small-sized stool.
Without even thinking about the light, exposure compensation, or even focus, I took the shot. The results were similar to the old photographs of the early XIX century shot by Joseph Nicéphore Niépce, Henry Fox Talbot, Nadar or even Louis-Jacques-Mandé Daguerre.
Take a look.
