Sometimes the photo that a photographer chooses is not always the one that a “normal” viewer would choose, that’s just how it is…. I’ve heard many Wedding Photographers lament over the same problems, they would show the couple an array of photos from the big day and then they would choose what the Photographer thought were those that were not the cream of the crop… for him (or her).
This is because we are each looking at the photographs from a different perspective, each photo speaks to us differently, and appeals to each individual differently; so it would be no surprise to me if this week’s photo draws dome curious stares 🙂 I like it, but I don’t expect everyone to like it.

On some photo-walks you just never know what you’ll come away with. We were walking around the area near Parliament Buildings and Big Market (Stabroek Market), when we noticed this building.
It was aging, had a nice muted colour (due to faded paint by the harsh sun), and the paint was peeling. If only I had caught someone leaning on the building! But I still think it’s a nice shot, even without the person leaning on it 🙂

During this season when many people wish for World Peace, Goodwill among Men, we also see many young lovers finding new ways to express their love for each other.
Many novels and movies have lines like “I’ll shout it to the Heavens”, but it seems that in Guyana, we have a new method… “I’ll paint it on the Seawall!”
Some man (or woman, we are living in a new age) seriously meant for the subject of their amorous intent to see the writing on the wall 🙂

This image is an HDR composite of three exposures, I stood there waiting for the traffic to clear long enough for the three exposures 🙂
I struggled with this selection, partially because I was busy, and also because I took quite a few photos that week (mainly a wedding), did some sight-seeing where the taxi-driver afforded me some “drive-by shooting” of some scenes 🙂
I could have stopped him to get better shots, but time is important and I didn’t want to waste his, but it did form a base of where I’d like to see when I go back!
The shot I chose is more Nikhil’s type of subject, but it was one even I couldn’t resist. In the village of Suddie, this tank sits near the Police building and the Hospital, you just don’t see these tanks much these days.
I didn’t do much processing on this one, a crop to remove some distracting portions and to center it, and some added black, contrast and clarity. Oops, that sounds like a lot to some people.
This tank is in remarkably good condition for its age, of course, I drew some strange stares from the people in the area, especially the security guards at the hospital 🙂
