I took this photo during an annual event in Lyon, France. This event is called “fête des lumières” (Festival of lights). It happens every year in december and over a million of people go in Lyon to see all sorts of lights installation.
Anyway, I was walking around the city with my camera waiting for the night and all the lights. There were those big enlightened balloons floating in the dark sky. I wanted to do something with it. Didn’t know what… Then I saw this man with a hat, I just started to follow him and take the photograph at the right moment.

Street photographs are mirror images of society, displaying "unmanipulated" scenes, with usually unaware subjects.
