Capturing small moments: A story of a man and his keyboard in Lisbon

Hello everyone! My name is Dante Janssens, and I am the founder of Perlagente. I take all the pictures featured on the site. Each week, I will share the story behind one of these pictures.

I have always been a big fan of capturing small moments that create a huge story; a story that tells a part of someone's life and helps me understand what it is like to be that person.

When I'm going to shoot a new city, I am always looking for stories. A city is often defined by its architectural heritage. However, I feel that it's the people who actually live in the city that define what kind of city it is. So, when we were wandering through the city of Lisbon, I was once again searching for those stories. Luckily, I found one of the coolest stories so far.

When we got to the harbor, a man accompanied by his little dog was playing his keyboard. He was sitting between two pillars and overlooking the sea. The composition for the picture was one in a million. When I took the shot, I already knew it was going to be in my collection. I knew it was going to tell a great story.

For me, this picture tells the story of a man who keeps on going for what he wants, no matter what life throws at him. He is enjoying the small moments that make his life worth it.

Remember, it is okay to enjoy the small moments in your life. Life moves too fast not to celebrate it.
