How unexpected. For the second time within three days, I spotlight photography that won’t be part of my Flickr a Day series but should be. The project, which reaches No. 136 this fine Saturday, only features […]
Motion describes the street style of Nadine Heidrich. From Mölln, Germany, but living in Hamburg, she is a relative Flickr newcomer, joining in August 2013. What a contribution her black-and-white portfolio brings. Each photo is a […]
I chose today’s selection mainly for what it isn’t. Color. Absence makes the street portrait more curious; provocative. You lean forward into the screen to better see the detail, then click to look larger. My preference would be different composition, but the subject’s expression, particularly his eyes, evokes something—sadness perhaps—that is moving.
Tobi Gaulke used Leica Camera AG M Monochrom and Leica Summilux-M 35mm f/1.4 ASPH lens to shoot self-titled “Don’t be Judgemental” on March 5, 2015. Vitals: f/1.4, ISO 800, 1/30 sec. This is the third photo featuring the Monochrom (see Days 87 and 120).
The best street photography, and also photojournalism, is about opportunity and seizing the moment. That’s what Ville Miettinen did on Oct. 13, 2007. “Some thick rubber mats caught fire in the building next door to my […]
We conclude an unexpected trio of candid kids-on-the-street shots (see Days 125 and 126) with the delightfully composed self-titled “Takeway”. Gerry Balding captured the young ladies on Oct. 5, 2013, using the Fujifilm X10. The […]
Continuing for a second straight day our kids-on-the-street theme, Julien Grosjean presents self-titled “Don’t Move”, captured on Oct. 24, 2014, using Fujifilm X-T1 and Fujinon XF23mmF1.4 R lens. Oh what a prime it is! Vitals: […]
Cuba is big news here in the United States, following the historic meeting between Presidents Barack Obama and Raul Castro on April 11, 2015. Four months earlier, the White House ordered full restoration of diplomatic relations with the island nation.
Photos like self-titled “Cuba Girls” come from non-Americans, because of travel restrictions that the Obama Administration is lifting. Doug Wheller lives in London. He used Canon 550D to capture today’s selection, on April 20, 2012. Vitals: f/9, ISO 200, 1/400 sec, 70mm.
Our series’ fourth month ends with, like Day 87, the Leica Camera AG M Monochrom. Ross Pollack captured the photo in Hong Kong, when he lived there. He is now stateside after residing a decade […]
Street photography this difficult looks too easy. Toronto, Canada-based Kat N.L.M. is the roving eye whose lens captures contrasting subjects—things that go oddly, yet somehow appropriately, together. Today’s selection is typical of his setup. You […]
Some photos demand attention for the perplexity they present. “What the frak?” is my question looking at pose and police. I want to know the context, the backstory, and there may be none other than […]
Our pick uses similar technique as Day 101: Selective color highlights one subject while subtlety drawing attention to another, in black and white. Both photos were also captured in 2008, this one on May 25 (the […]
Decades ago, I spun vinyl records as a radio DJ. Segues between songs meant everything. For this series, so far, differences are—or have been—the priority moving from one selection to the next so as not […]
