Flickr a Week 32a: ‘I Couldn’t Resist’

Self-titled “I Couldn’t Resist” certainly could be me—or perhaps you—walking by, seeing the sign, and taking the shot. But the moment belongs to Tom Driggers, who explains: “How very appropriate! This humorous sign was standing near the register at a well-known sandwich shop in Atlanta, GA”. The composed juxtaposition—big, sharp sign to the right and blurred cook to the left—just works.

Tom used Fujifilm X100F on Jan. 25, 2019 to capture our Weekend Winner. Vitals: f/2, ISO 640, 1/125 sec, 23mm.

About his shooting style:

I was given my first camera by an aunt when I was seven years old, a Kodak 620 Box camera. In the late 1960’s, I moved into the world of the 35mm SLR and remained a film shooter for many years, finally making the move to digital when I purchased a Nikon D200.

Today, I use a number of cameras, mostly Nikon and Fuji, and am perhaps most drawn to street photography. While my interest in photography covers many subjects and styles, I have not yet mastered the art of post-processing, so most of my images which you will see in my stream are ‘captured’ images with only the most basic alterations (if any) before posting.

Good, I say. Tom joined Flickr in March 2008 and continues to post pics 12 years later.
