Statues take II

I know I said in a previous post that I would try not to take the comfortably easy photographs of statues. Well, I tried. This last photo is definitely my favorite. I was taking a photo of the statue when a stranger passing by decided to get into frame and pose. For a brief second I thought about… Continue reading Statues take II

Streets of Porto #1

First ventures in street photography in downtown Porto, Portugal Taken with Zoe, my Zenit TTL This will be the first of (probably) many posts with photographs of the streets of Porto.

I probably won't do them… Continue reading Variations

I took Zoe with me during the day and had… Continue reading Dancing

Taking photos of strangers: street vendors

One thing to know about me is that I'm terribly shy, even behind a camera. I never know if I should just point my camera at people and shoot or ask for permission. They say it's easier to ask for forgiveness than permission, but the thought of a random person on the street getting mad… Continue reading Taking photos of strangers: street vendors
