Mr. G8

When I go street shooting sometimes my photographs are made better by accidents. It’s not that I’m totally unaware of what I want to achieve but out of the blue comes a great detail that I didn’t see initially.

In this case it’s that circle with the green G8 in its lower half. Cropping the image to a 10 x 16 format puts it smack dab in the upper left corner as a fine balance point.

Of course the sleeping woman is arresting but then again the off center  splash of color is too. Initially I planned to crop the image tighter and just emphasise the figure but changed my mind after looking at it for a while. Off balance?  Yes, but then again….

There is a story here. I don’t know it though. If I was a better photographer, I’d be able to give you more of a glimpse of it but as it stands now we’ll just have to make up our own.

I’d forgotten how much fun babies are!

The Man With Magic Earrings

To me he looks right out of the hippy 60s. I think this look is probably passe by now but I really wouldn’t now. (Not really hip anymore…as if I ever was.) That said I like this portrait. He looks like a pretty nice guy.

As it is Saturday today, there were plenty of folks wandering around the Boston Garden today providing me ample opportunity to take their pictures. Here are 2 that please me.

PS The guy above seems right out of the hippy era with his lightning earrings and long wavy hair.
