after the rain

this shot was taken in front of my home from my terrace, the men was a lovely person who lived next door to my apartment, I remember it was sunset time and just stop to rain and a little sunlight came out breaking the dark clouds, I call him: Ubaldo! and shot! this is one of the last images of this man, he was killed by a car while he crossing the street in front of our house few time later! he's last words was "what a stupid way to die". this photo is so precious to me.

    @ananovi thank you! 126 film are not produced anymore since long time, I think that the only way is to search on ebay or if you can find an empty cartridge trying to reload it with common 35mm. :)
