Just a simple street portrait but what I like about is how “Lady Starbucks” is looking over his shoulder.
It’s all in the hands and eyes.
A cute kid is impossible to ignore!
This soft eyed creature was lying in the window of a photo studio near where we live. There was no way I wasn’t going to take its picture.
It’s obviously hard to say what exactly this man is thinking about. I didn’t talk to him. However, there is a hard anger in his face that’s hard to ignore.
The photograph was developed in black and white because I wanted to emphasize the bleak nature of this picture.
I’m drawn towards taking photographs of older people. They have more striking faces than the plump, unlined ones of youth. Their eyes especially speak to the journey they’ve been on.
The Taj used to be Boston’s old Ritz Hotel and it’s still a lovely place. The eyes of this man illustrate eloquently what it takes to be good at his job. Watch everything, all the time and always be prepared to act immediately in the best interest of guests.
Sharp eyes and quick reflexes also are essential tools of street shooters. (Using a camera of course.)
