Took a few impromptu shots of Rab playing the guitar in our friends' living room in France. There is a slight grain, which is what I wanted (ISO was set at 640, no flash was used and there was some light coming in from a side window). The idea was to get Rab's hand in focus and have the head slightly out of focus (so I did it on purpose and it's not a mistake, lol).

In camera crop, auto levels adjustment, resized, sharpened and border added.

I heard the terrible news about the bombs in London, i thaught of you and Rab, I hope all is fine, please take care! i feel very sad for such a beautiful city but i know that Londoners and the Brittish people are strong and that you will not let these terrorists change your way of life, please know that the Japanese people are your friends and that we stand with you against these cowards!
