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.

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.

“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.

Street photography: week twenty-six

“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.

Two quite different views, one of a broken ladder taken in an old light house in Cape Breton, and the other a scene at a christening in Hove, UK.

Street photography: week nineteen

“Expose the banalities of the new urban landscape” George Georgiou

“…I am interested in…what the relationship is between a modern planned urban/suburban space and the individual. In other words, planned public space where people can feel comfortable or familiar with but allows people to move through this space without contact, we almost become invisible to each other.” George

Street photography: week eighteen

“Look for a window. Through a window, out of a window, or at the reflections on a window.” – Arif Asci.

These images were all taken during a short visit to Brighton, England.
