Oh Shit!

“Oh Shit!” Colour photograph with white mat, black frame. Tours, France, 2018. Blog, Photography

Oh Shit!…what an indispensable expression!  I saw this graffitied on a wall in downtown Tours (a fabulous medieval French city) and thought “Oh Shit!…what a great shot”.  But then remembered that I forgot my camera back at my hotel room (Oh Shit!).  Thinking on my feet, I quickly hoofed it back to the hotel to grab it, worrying that the light would change (Oh Shit!).  But happily, I made it back to the spot with a good deal of sunlight still reflected on the wall and the purple of the lettering still popped so I exclaimed “Oh shit!” (in a good way) and took the “Oh Shit! Got it!” shot.
