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.

Not really, just a lady crossing the street at night shot from above. However her stance, the sign and the lighting create a visual ambivalence that I liked.

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.

 

 

 

The Lonely Traveler

Traveller.jpg

This was taken in Grand Central Station a few years ago. It’s a different kind of photograph than I usually take. It is minimalist to the extreme and not in sharp focus to boot. The mood and the story are primary. I like it as much for what isn’t in the frame as for what is.

 

Do I Have A Deal For You!

This guy was selling and selling hard. The more I practice street shooting, the more these little vignettes begin to show themselves. The trick is making a decent photo of them. In this case the brick wall, the contrasting tee shirts and the raking sunshine were very helpful.

Starbucks is doing a hell of a business!

Dad? DAD!

Being a parent is never easy. Wondering what one could have done better is haunting. This photo brings back memories of what might have been.
