THE BRAND by the PORTUGAL WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
There are movie directors that do not resist doing a small role in their movies. We can find some of them as secondary actors throughout history, only appearing in a small scene, an appearance where we least expect it, or as a mere passing by in a street scene. I do not know if it is vanity and be more than a name at the end of the film if the producer wants to save on the budget or, only because they think it is fun.

But, when I am a character in the part of the story and I can not have the power to say no, I must accept and move on.

So, by methods that only Japanese engineers can explain, and there is no time to ask them, they transform the wedding photographer into some sort of a cloud, in a texture that can help to complete the photo and, only, very forcibly, someone will know who has the face covered by some dark object, remotely resembling a photographic camera. I can’t even think of my life without my precious lenses that so well protect me from twisted-looking mirrors. Ah…In the third photo, the one on the right is me. Just to let you know. Not important…but….
