Best of 2017 #2: Vincent

I call my Leicas my soulmates and for a reason. They seem to transcend my inner feelings. This shot is a good example. I had to cope with some personal difficulties in 2017. As I was walking through Utrecht I noticed a pitch black bird sitting on top of a post. Silently, staring into the distance just as I was doing. The bird perfectly resembled my mood. I grabbed my Leica M9 paired with the 50 mm Summilux lens and took this shot as the bird took off.
