When shooting street photos, I usually prefer black and white. However, there are times when the color just needs to be shown. Such is the case here in “A Strange Look at the Alamo”. The colors were just too beautiful to leave out. This was shot at Iso 200 F/11 at 1/200 sec. I was using my Leica D-Lux Type 109 at approximately 12.1 mm. The name of the photo is a reference to the look of the police officer staring in my direction.
Washington Square Park is my favorite place to capture interesting moments. You often find people making art, performing or just hanging around. So many interesting people in New York City…so many! It was a beautiful day today, so I took out my Lecia D-Lux Type 109 and hit the streets. This was the only shot I liked today. 35mm at F/11 at 1/200 SEC. ISO was set on auto (320). I like capturing artistic people caught up in their work. This guy clearly was focused.
Somewhere near Naples, we watched the sunset. I captured this moment with my friend on the beach. Hundreds of awful photos that evening and this one gem.
My dear friend had suffered a tremendous loss. I caught him staring out at the ocean, it’s clear his heart is broken. Photography should capture “moments”. This one did, albeit a sad and tragic moment.
