The voyeur quality of street photography is well documented by this image. This lady was huddled in a doorways with her hands over her mouth. I’m pretty sure she was talking, or listening, on her cell phone. One can’t be sure of course but, whatever was happening seemed to cause her quite a bit of concern as evidenced but the lines in her face and the worried look in her eyes.
As we age it takes more and more effort to look stylish. Some succeed some don’t.
With the stock market going through the floor today and gun violence running rampant, it seems particularly appropriate that I ran across this down and out lady dressed in a US flag.
Most of us take walking for granted. Then there are those brave souls who struggle with this seeming simple act.
These killings have to stop!
It’s very hot today. The brutal temperature probably influenced the way she looks.
Believe it or not this was taken at the Harvard subway stop around 8:30pm on the fourth of July. The lack of other figures is kind of spooky but by this time in the evening my guess is most people had already made their way to the banks of the Charles River in Boston to listen to the concert and watch the fireworks.
I’ve been laid up lately and not able to take to the streets with my trusty Ricoh GRII. Today was the first time in weeks that I went into Petaluma with the camera. I had luck with this one as the bright sun illuminated her face very well.
Nice to be back!
Passed this lady going into town today. She didn’t look very happy. I don’t know whether she was peeved with my camera or the fact that it was pretty obvious that she was about to get very wet.
One further thing. I believe the picket fence was a huge help with this composition.
Finallyly, I shot this photo with an Olympus EM1 MK II. It’s quite a machine. Complicated as hell but I suspect, once mastered, I’ll love it.
I really like taking photographs of people on the street with window reflections behind them. This shot is a good example of that. It’s out front of a coffee bar with the reflection of the city library in the background. The logo on the woman’s jacket serves as the picture’s title.
The natural light on the woman’s face is helpful too.
