Street Photography: Times Square

This is one of those photographs where, for me, it’s both about the subject and the forms they create. It was a good jazz band and the two musicians here anchored the songs as a cohesive rhythm section. I also like the interplay of various elements. The musicians and their instruments form a dark shapeContinue reading “Street Photography: Times Square”

Street Photography: Dexter

It wasn’t easy getting this portrait. I was walking down Sixth Avenue last October and my ears were immediately drawn to the metallically percussive tones of the steel drums. I play several instruments and the steel drums (or steel pans) have been one of the many I have long wanted to learn – along withContinue reading “Street Photography: Dexter”

Portrait of a Father

His son Joaquin, was murdered last year. On Valentine’s Day. Only 17 years old. So, too, was another student. And another. And another. And another… 17 students and staff members in total, all at one time. It took 9 minutes for Joaquin Oliver and Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School to became part of a darkContinue reading “Portrait of a Father”

They played very well and I took several photographs of them in action. Now as a musician myself, I can attest that we tend to like loud volumes. TheContinue reading “Street Photography: Perspective”

Street Photography: Caught Looking

© 2019 Xiomaro.com I have a small camera and I’m pretty stealthy in getting my shots. But sooner or later, everyone gets caught. It was not until after I viewed the photograph in my studio that I realized he was looking straight at me. And, thinking back at the occasion, I know why. I wasContinue reading “Street Photography: Caught Looking”

Street Photography: Hare Krishna

I heard it before I saw it. A cacophony of percussion, organ, accordion, and loud chants. As I cut through the dense crowd, the Hare Krishnas leapt and shouted past me with joyful abandon. But I caught a glimpse of a contrasting figure that I wanted to photograph when he circled back in my direction.Continue reading “Street Photography: Hare Krishna”
