Something has changed… although I am not sure what it is, it has affected my photography, or maybe it has affected how I see my photographs. I was very disappointed with this last week’s photographs, either I have lost the zeal or I am more critical of the images, or I have simply taken bad images this last week. Of the one hundred and five images taken over the last week, there was one that I was somewhat pleased with, a location that I had photographed before, but never posted an image of it for The 2010 Deck.
We revisited the Kitty Market Square, and I took this image, I liked it in colour, but I also liked it in monochrome… after some consultation, the monochrome edged out the colour 🙂

encouraging words 🙂
I think, as an inevitable consequence of what happened to us last week, some of the joy has gone out of photography. It is going to take a while to recover that again. We are both functioning a bit on autopilot. As a result we are choosing less challenging shots and locations. It will come back, but it is a matter of time.
Nik, Maybe, just maybe 🙂
Hello Michael. As usual, I look forward to receiving your photos. I immediately got drawn to this photo, then I noticed the automobile in the far background and I just wish it wasn’t there. It changed the way I was enjoying the photo. (smile) Still love it though as it is a great shot, but love it a different way now. Thanks Mike. Cecil
Thanks Cecil, you should have seen the one with the big yellow taxi in front of it 🙂
Love the image, Michael, it’s really atmospheric, the tone is great,the lone guy in what appears to be a deserted place. Really good. AND, although I’ve always thought your stuff was great anyway, there’s just ‘block’ periods where nothing comes through, nothing feels right or maybe you’re being really critical. Either way, you’re a great photographer so the talent is there inside you already. 🙂
Thanks for the compliments Nigel, I don’t consider myself great and seldom consider myself a true photographer 🙂
Your compliments are things I aspire to and now hope to live up to 🙂
Hi Michael, yes I too like this image, also like Cecil its a pity that car is in the back ground. Still a cracker of a shot mate!
Thanks David, I tend to agree, maybe I should have cropped it a bit 🙂
I suppose it’s a good thing to have high expectations of yourself. And it will only serve to help you improve even further as a photographer.
You will find your mojo back!
Great shot as always. 🙂
Thanks, I just hope it doesn’t take too long to find it 🙂
A really nice shot … you are absolutely a great photographer, Michael!
Thanks Kerstin, I’ll take the compliment 🙂
Love this shot.I like the way you have portrayed the street life…
Thanks Sasi, Nikhil does a far better job, but I get some nifty ones sometimes 🙂
