Shoot with Both Eyes Open

I am always reminded how blind I can be to the world around me when I put my eye to the viewfinder.  Ironically, I let my guard down when I’m at my best.  Anything can happen in 1/60 or even 1/8,000 of a second – good or bad!

This is a sample of what my eyes see.

  1. Nice selfie. And which camera is that?

    That photo of those icicles with a shop in the bg reminds me. . .Final Destination! I hope you warned the store owner.

    • Thanks! The camera is a Nikon N90, with a 50mm f/1.8 lens.
      Funny you should mention asking the store owner for permission – I was exercising my right as a street photog in taking the photo – but the photo is of a liquor store, so I’m not sure how that goes. As long as you’ve got the picture, they can’t do anything about it. This is the world you live in as well; take what you want.

  2. Nope, I said warn the shopkeeper about those icicles before they fall on someone’s head and. . .

    Sorry, I think I may have seen one gore movie too many.

    The last thing I’ll do is tell a fellow street photographer to go ask for permission before taking photos xD

    I love the colours in these photos. Kinda muted and minimalist. Doesn’t infringe.
