If you were mean, you would point out that it has been almost 2 months since my last “360” post. That was the project that was supposed to see me posting pictures I had taken every week. But you aren’t mean, and I think I’ve really realized that my photography just doesn’t work like that. But I did finally go out driving around some Sunday morning, and are some of sights I saw. Only the pictures are in black and white and I, of course, saw these things in color. Trust me, it’s better this way.
Street photography is very popular these days, although I haven’t done much of it because it is just plain hard, though being in places crowded with interesting people helps. I haven’t seen my Canon EOS M camera recommended for such photography by anyone due to relatively slow auto-focus. But that is what I used for most of these. The rest were taken on an aging (but beloved) Ricoh GRD III. And, as has always been the custom, I’ve added some grain and contrast and converted to black and white for a gritty look. I really enjoyed taking these and need to do this type of photography more often.
We’ll start with the smokin’ women. Cigarette smokin’ women I mean.
Now for some gelato eatin’ men.
And now, other pictures taken on the streets.
We drove back from St. Louis on Sunday. I had to go to London on Tuesday. And Hazard and Harlan on Wednesday. After that I was too tired to take more pictures.
