In the Streets


I find that I am not fixed in my photography habits as yet, as I spend more time with Nikhil, I tend to absorb some of his outlook on different types of photography.  Going into “taking pictures” I never even knew that there were so many areas of photography; Macro Photography (or macrography), Model Photography, Product Photography, Landscape Photography… You name it and there’s probably some type of photography associated with it! Anyway Nikhil has a fondness for Street Photography, he knows the Famous of the genre, like Henri Cartier Bresson, and also some of the not-so-famous  🙂  Anyway, some of it is rubbing off on me, maybe because I usually accompany him on his jaunts to find his next subject.

While it is still “not my thing”, I don’t discount it as a style that I may adopt from time to time, I just don’t think that I am any good at it  🙂

So just for starters, here are three recent ones that may fit the category.

I heard the drumming before I saw the drummer, and by the time I got across the street the original drummer had switched places with this youngster.

Drummer Boy

A popular sight on the pavements of Georgetown, everyone wants to see the latest movies:

DVD Versions

And this one is outside a busy “Betting Shop”

Locking it in

So goes my first forage into Street Photography, but I have others from the past that may fit the category, I’ll add them to the collection later  🙂

  1. I found these street pix composition a tad restrictive. While this focus on the subject it begs other questions of background, settings etc

  2. I think you did a really good job with your first attempt at street shooting. Honestly, I’d feel very uncomfortable taking photos of strangers so, respect to you for doing that. Well done.

  3. I’m a people-watcher and so I love the concept of street photography. So far however, I haven’t found the nerve to aim my camera in public. I live in a small, very quiet town so the opportunity only really arises when I go to the cities. Someday I’m going to try it out. Kudos and good luck to you in this project. I think it’s a very challenging subject and from this little taste, I suspect that you are going to be Very good at it!
