Street photography: week twenty-eight

“Go somewhere you haven’t been before – a dog show, a polo match, a monster truck rally – and remember, the interesting things often happen at the fringes away from the main ‘action’.” – Paul Russell.

The three images below were all taken on the periphery.

From behind

Although not on the periphery of an event, these beach huts on Brighton seaside front have very colourful fronts and are often photographed from the front. They have a different appeal from behind.

Lets talk

I took this photograph while in Cuzco, Peru at a festival during Easter.

Being brave,…

Last week I completed a 5-day meditation retreat in the city of Halifax, NS. The title of the retreat was “Being Brave and Transforming Our World”

Meditation makes the world more vivid and after the course I found a lot of perceptions jumping out at me. After the retreat, I shot a photograph of a friend drinking wine in the rain on our deck at the back of the house. Without explaining further, the image encapsulated much what I learned at the retreat.

“Bend the rules and play tricks with the mind; make documents of moments that have never existed.” – Peter Funch

When these moments occur I find they are full of humour. I really enjoy finding them.

“If you’re not sure it’s a picture, shoot it anyway” – Carolyn Drake

These two images, from many others, were occasions when I saw something but was unsure whether to shoot it or not.

I think if one has reached the stage of trying to decide whether to click the shutter, then one has already thought too much about the image and should move on.

Hands

Charles Flowers on Elliott Erwitt’s Handbook (2003)

“Always include hands, because they are more expressive than the face”

"...as much as 60 percent of all human communication anywhere in the world is non-verbal, being accomplished principally with the hands"

"...we want to touch and be touched, or we wither away and die"
