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.
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.
Sarah is the young lady on the ride. I posted this photo because the lady working the ride seemed to enjoy our taunting Sarah right before the ride started. Just one of those moments I love. I also liked the depth and composition of this photograph. Shot with my Leica D-Lux 109, under cloudy skies.
