Street Photography: Times Square

In addition to my fascination with hair, as described in yesterday’s post, I am also drawn to interesting clothes. This was a very colorful bunch. It was an overcast day, which made the colors pack an extra punch. These are the sort of photographs that I like to think of as “future history.” Twenty orContinue reading “Street Photography: Times Square”

Street Photography: Broadway

Hair. What a great thing it is. There is so much one can do with it. They come in many colors – natural and dyed – shapes, sizes, heights, lengths, textures, densities, styles, and more. I’ve noticed that I have many street photographs of people with interesting hair. I suppose I have cultivated a fascinationContinue reading “Street Photography: Broadway”

Street Photography: Arm Wrestling

Well this was a new one for me. I saw these two shirtless guys huddling around this bank of trash containers. Then I noticed the third fellow and how they’re all bringing their hands together. Finally I hear one of them barking out to the crowds walking past that they are about to commence withContinue reading “Street Photography: Arm Wrestling”

Street Photography: Times Square

If a door is open, I’m inclined to take a peek. If the door is not open, then I’m inclined to wonder what lies behind it. When the National Park Service commissions me to create artistic photographic collections of their historic houses, that’s part of the charm. All the doors are opened for me andContinue reading “Street Photography: Times Square”

Street Photography: Times Square

I first saw Anthony last year. He was wandering about in Times Square holding a sign and hollering about some dispute he was having with his landlord. I was running late to catch my train at Penn Station. And, as he was turning to walk in the opposite direction, I did not have time toContinue reading “Street Photography: Times Square”

Street Photography: Bring on the Blur

It’s difficult for me to write about my blurry photographs. There really isn’t much to say. I think it’s the sort of thing where one either is open to considering the image and possibly liking it or one might just reject it out of hand. All I know is that I like the randomness toContinue reading “Street Photography: Bring on the Blur”

Street Photography: Broadway

It was a nice moment of this family huddled around the smartphone looking at what I presume is a photograph. Perhaps it’s of a snapshot the mother just got done taking of the baby in the stroller. I’m not sure. I was walking past, noticed the scene, paused briefly, created the photograph, and kept onContinue reading “Street Photography: Broadway”

Street Photography: Seventh Avenue

I often photograph people. It means scanning the streets before me, sweeping my gaze from side to side, and looking ahead as far down the block as possible to anticipate who may be approaching me. There’s also a lot to see above everyone’s heads. It might be a potential “portrait” of a skyscraper or aContinue reading “Street Photography: Seventh Avenue”

Street Photography: Blurry Mode Again

Yes, it’s time for me to bring on the blur. I get tired of shooting a certain way and then go with slow exposures for the challenge of creating something interesting. This was photographed at Penn Station in New York City during the rush hour. As soon as a track is announced for a train,Continue reading “Street Photography: Blurry Mode Again”

Street Photography: What’s Going On?

I have written in the past about how I like ambiguity in some photographs. It gives the viewer an opportunity to feel vested in the image by making it their own. They are free to interpret what is going on to suit whatever narrative they choose. Abstract art and lyrics to certain songs can beContinue reading “Street Photography: What’s Going On?”
