2015 Deck – Week 47

Between trying not to get run over on the busy East Bank Public Road, heeding the warnings from the workmen that I was in their way, and trying to get to my vehicle across the now doubly busy road, I was also trying to get a good photo.  This was one of those occasions when you can see the finished photo in your mind’s eye, and as you click the button you’re just praying that it comes up to scratch.

It’s not as sharp as I’d like, but since I was on the move, I’m happy with what I did get 😀

The Deck – Week 51

This week’s photograph is not the best I’ve taken for the week, it is, however, somewhat representative of Christmas in Guyana.  The Masquerade bands come out during the Christmas Season and then at Mashramani, although I didn’t see the “Mother Sally” and the “Bull” at this gathering, these gentlemen were out in the hot midday sun, entertaining the public and raising some funds for their future endeavours.

Merry Christmas to all who stop by to read this, busy though most of us are  🙂

 

Masquerade in GT for Christmas

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.

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  🙂
