The classic alley shot. It’s been done to death. Still, it’s tough to pass up. Without the people, I would have.
Here’s something you don’t see every day. Especially not on Bloor Street in Toronto, home of the highest of high-end boutique clothing stores. I’m pretty happen with this one.
I love this guy’s pose. Sadly my haste to capture him once again resulted in an unacceptably blurry photo.
I wanted to try some panning. This was the first attempt that turned out half decent. I should have lowered the frame slightly to catch the whole front wheel.
Another favourite. I would have taken a shot of the car alone, but the strip club and passerby gawking at the car add some flavour.
I stood in this spot and waiting for a few people to walk by. I wanted a bit of motion blur, but I think I also missed focus again. Should have been closer.
I actually saw this guy, walked past, laughed, and then walked back and took this picture. Still makes me laugh. I have no idea what he was looking at, but looks like he takes his job pretty seriously.
I was reading a site on street photography yesterday that said something along the lines of “taking a picture of someone else’s art is not street photography.” I think I agree.
With this photo I was simply drawn to the genuine moment being shared between these two. It’s another one I grabbed quick. Hopefully with practice, I’ll get better at anticipating these sort of things so I can line up my shot sooner.
Critique to come.
