Flickr a Day 131: ‘Don’t be Judgemental’

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).

Flickr a Day 125: ‘Cuba Girls’

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.
