Street/Urban


Although I, like many others, enjoy making pictures randomly of street scenes, it is vogue to create projects or themes which somehow justify each photograph to create a coherent collection of images. To satisfy this craving to give context, I have grouped some of my shots together. 


Juxtaposition 

This was taken at London Bridge with a Leica DLux5 set on auto. There was not a lot of light available hence the grainy look from the high iso selected by the camera. All in all I like the juxtaposition between the two elements. Kylie in the sunshine whilst the pedestrian battles against the elements toward a sign directing pedestrians in the opposite direction. 

Who is looking at who

This juxtaposition presented itself at London Bridge station. The steel seats are a 'Nike' tick and being used by someone who could probably afford Nike trainers and someone who probably couldn't

 

These two pictures have the theme 'backs',

 


STREET PORTRAIT

An accommodating chap I met walking through docklands

This was taken with my GX9 in Trafalgar Square during the Extinction Rebellion demonstrations. Zoom in on the gentleman's newspaper headline which seemed ironic to me.

I wondered if these two were emailing each other

 

On the street, This is Lloyd, Jimmy and Troy in Maidstone

TIME AND MOTION

LIGHT AND COLOUR

I framed this shot incorrectly. This is about the umbrellas and the stall matching colours. I needed to get more of the stall canopy In the picture.
