I was waiting on the sidewalk in Chinatown for my wife to run an errand when I spied these ladies huddled together down the block. I’m not sure they knew I was taking their photograph but they were definitely checking out this outsider.

The beauty of a Ricoh GR for street photography is that you can take a picture and move on before your subject is really aware of what’s going on.

Walking city streets as much as I do, helps me to see interesting faces more clearly. I passed this man on Charles Street early this morning. He was sitting quietly with his hands folded, in a very relaxed pose. However his eyes told a very different story.

In todays’ digital age a lot of people, including me, place a good deal of stress on just getting noticed. Sure the photo above is an arresting image but if that’s all it is, that’s not enough.
If I told you that I was watching this guy from the time he got on the subway for a chance to take his picture. However, because he didn’t look overly friendly I wasn’t sure I could do it without a possible altercation.
I came up with this plan. Since my seat was right next to a door, if he got off before I did, there was a chance a picture could be snapped while his attention was on stepping off the car.
As luck would have it, he did leave one stop earlier then I and although he caught a quick glimpse of my little Ricoh GR camera he got off the car without incident.
A little more context never hurts. Thus ends the lesson.

I saw this coming about ten steps away. When the photo finally got taken the sneeze had just happened and he was taking his tee-shirt away from his nose. I would have liked to have been able to take this shot a second or so earlier but I wasn’t close enough. I’m categorizing this as a “good but could have been better”.

Couldn’t resist. I was just going to call this a red, white and blue abstract but the lock and colors were too much of a temptation.
