Recently I have been organising things on my computer and came across some unblogged photos. Some of them I didn't blog originally as they seemed to lack something, but mostly I just forgot at the time. I'm going to go through them today in here, because I don't think it's fair leaving them out to be honest.
I liked the contrast with the man's expression and bundle with the caption on the poster.
This is the same bus stop as in this…
I really like the motion vs. static and people vs. inanimate.
I know the people set up with advertising/posters is the oldest trick in the street photography book,
but I happen to like it. :-D.
And look, it's more people carrying things…
This was a moment I passed on my way home.
I thought it was a funny the man was in the phone booth, but on his own mobile phone.
At the time I didn't think I executed this in the best possible way, but it still puts a smile on my face.
More people lost. I really should start organising this series on Flickr.com
I have learned to be subtly confrontational with my camera this year.
Mostly I pretend blatantly that I'm not even taking a photo of the person I am photographing.
Most of the time this works. Like with this man.
I really like the connection I have caught here with me and him, and his obvious feeling of frustration.
This is from London's Chinatown. I loved the contrast of these women and their positioning.
It's a shame that the older woman closed her eyes, and this is why I didn't blog this before.
One of the moments I wish I'd caught much better, but those men in the background really ruined any possibility of making this work after I took a couple of frames. There were so many of them so that the old lady got lost in the crowd and then a moment later she'd stood up, lost the fag and I'd lost the moment. Wish this was tad bit sharper, too. But there is something about old people smoking that I find fascinating… Oh, and the title is a play with words. A fag means a cigarette in Britain. It's not to meant to be offensive in any way. ;-)
I totally forgot to post this when I was blogging the photos from 16th September 06.
It's actually one of my favourite photos from that day, so I have no excuses.
I love the connection with the couple – the things people in love do in the "honeymoon period", as well as their setting.
Too cute for words. :-D
Shooting in general has been a bit slow, because work is consuming a lot of my time and energy at the moment. One nice thing that happened this week was that I got my prints and negs from the Lomographic Society (from the South Bank Lomo wall thing). There are two pictures in there which I really adore, about 6 that are ok and the rest of it is rubbish. The case of first rolls once again proven… :-D I'm adding scanning the prints to my to-do list, so expect to see some of them in the future here. But for now, I think I'll try to go out and get some new snaps!
