I was walking through Antwerp a few days after christmas. It was damp and cold. I needed to cross a fairly busy centre street with lots of public transport. To avoid being caught up in the chaos of people, I lingered a bit when the green light came up. As the people went left and right, the sky opened up and this was presented to me. Just before being ran over by a bus, I could take this picture. I can remember that I was excited about seeing this image that I had a split second to enjoy. So, without clearly recalling somebody’s presence and detail, I transferred my photo’s to my computer. When I looked at it the second time, I felt the same excitement I had when I took it. Without hesitation, I decided to make a 2 meters high copy of the image. Than I noticed the socks.
