Especially for my friend @stainedjabot , because I had the same hairstyle as him 😉 and a very stylish Arabian galabija, and about 17 years in this photo. I accepted the challenge halfway, but forgive me for not passing it on , unless someone feels the need to go back in time. We were hitchhiking around the Polish mountains Bieszczady. Crazy time 🌞
I like black and white. It is a way of making things eternal, making everything more intact. old photo, new photos only after the pandemic.
