I shot this a while ago, using the 85mm 1.8 lens at F4. I ask for permission to photograph them one of my rare moments that I ask before photographing anyone. I had walked past them and only then did I decide to take a photo so I doubled back and I had to ask other wise it would have been really creepy for them lol...the girl to the right of the image looks very nervous. By the way they told me it was okay to take the shot, so I did and I thanked them and I was on my way again.
Shot yesterday at Brick Lane, I thought I was going to get a lot of people shots but it turned out that Brick Lane was closed due to Boxing Day. It wasn't closed but most of the shops didn't open and it was like a ghost town. Spotted this mural and lucky me these three girls were walking past it, I would have liked all three to be looking at me, but one turned around to take a photo of the bird, and the other two kept walking..
I heart London =) I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, I know I did. My joy is being woken up by my daughter at 630am after of course going to bed around 2am myself and seeing the joy in her face as she tore into her gifts. If I could only have one thing in the world it would be that... I love being a parent =) anyway... going out today to Brick Lane and seeing if I can get some quality images. By the way if anyone is ever in London and wants to get together for a photo walk please let me know so we can get together.
I photographed this gentleman on Wed at Camden market... yes I know Im spending a lot of time there, its a great place to do your Christmas shopping and get in few shots. He works at a great little shop where you would expect to see Abby Sciuto from NCIS. You can buy skulls, upside down crosses and your very own casket. Looks can be very deceiving, this guy is the most down to earth and polite person you would ever meet and it was a pleasure talking to him. This will be the last post before Christmas so I wish everyone a Happy and Safe Christmas to you and your families from me and my family.
Here is a splash of color.... shot by Camden Market yesterday, its been a super start to winter the weather is mild and wonderful. Its hard to tell by looking at this person but its been unseasonably warm.
I spotted this guy about a half a block away and rushed to take this shot. Not as good as I wanted it to be but its a keeper... I asked if he was taking a break and he said "no just trying to escape from the people" Im happy he isn't my waiter =) I guess some of us have jobs or lives we want to escape from.
The painted lady..... she caught my eye when she stood at the corner and I wasn't fast enough to capture her at that point but I was fast enough to capture her before she left the corner. I love the name of the street as well ... it goes along with the color of her hat.
This was shot on Sunday at the Petticoat lane market in London, its a great little market that is open only on Sundays mostly knock off stuff but Im sure you can find a gem in there some where. I saw this little girl and she was in her own little world like most kids and I took a few images she never paid any attention to me. I love the calm look on her face...
This is the second time photographing this young lady. I first photographed her when I was doing portraits of athletes, you can see her images from a June blog of this year. This was taken in Camden market behind "The Cuban" bar and restaurant I loved the contrast of the blue doors and brick.
To me the look on her face is priceless. She is aware of me taking her photo of which Im sure she doesn't want her photo taken but I think the t-shirt on her left explains how she feels about me... I had to blur out one shirt because I thought it would be too disrespectful to show on my site.
