Urban Dog Sled

This photograph is why I like the Ricoh GR so much. Walking to the subway this morning, head down, thinking about the trip I was about to take, I had almost no warning of this highly unusual scene approaching at a very fast clip. The Ricoh has a setting for snap shooting where the camera is already programmed to take a picture at a certain focal range. Thanks to that setting, I was able to take the camera out of its pouch and fire off one shot before this skateboard dog sledder dude went hurtling past me.

iPhone Street Shooter

And yes the time is fast approaching, if it isn’t here already, when that little electronic slab in your pocket or purse will be a very very good tool for this kind of photography.

He may be the nicest man in the world but I’m not sure I’d bet on it.

Street Shot With Reindeer

As much as street shooters hate to admit it, luck can often make or break a photo. Take this one. I was focusing hard on the cowboy looking guy with the plastic bag. It was very bright out and the resulting photograph was way over exposed. But low and behold when I knocked the harsh shadows back, what to my wondering eyes should appear but a reindeer in the window next to him. Bingo!

Leaving The Frame

DSCF0091

As photographers were always deciding what we want to enclose in our picture. We put our frame around a piece of our reality. I thought of this as I was deciding what to do with a rather ordinary picture I took of a man walking in front of an old brick wall. By making the dimensions square and placing a small tree in its center, the man is caught just exiting the right side of the frame.

I’m partial to the finished product.
