Wow. It looks like HDR  O0

OK try and guess where this one was taken, who that person is and what is happening ;)

I could make up a story, but as for guessing what is actually going on, I wouldn't have a clue.

Is this in Paris?

Yeah it is in Paris.
The posture of the person could clue you in actually. I think.

Can you post it larger? I can't tell.

I do like the photo a lot, though.

Okay I'm going to have to use my imagination because I have no idea.  :P

It's a woman who is just moving in to a new flat, and she has that rolling wardrobe that she has to fit through the door, so she's got a tape measure with her to see if it will fit, but she looks more like she's measuring the floor.

She appears to be standing on her tip-toes? Or she's putting (golf putting). And if that's not a stick of sorts in front of her, then I'm way off. In that case, she is walking backwards, and about to step off the entry. (I don't think she's walking IN with her feet so arched up like that?)

Ahhhhh!  See, my mind is too clean to have gone that direction on its own.  ;)

So she's not barefoot - she's in stilettos.

Bingo. And probably talking to a client.

I'm glad I didn't guess it was AB! :o

(I know that would have meant you didn't take the shot, so the guess would have been that you had it set up or something)

I know what you mean. It had occurred to me, as well. Then I was thinking the door frame was a mirror, and that would mean we were looking at a reflection, and I was looking for evidence of that.  I'm glad I didn't express that thought.

But, my very first instinctual guess was that it looked like Yoko Ono era 1968. So, for whatever that's worth. The woman's legs weren't that thin, but she was hot.

The mirror thought came to mind too.

You know, in the close-up version of the picture, it almost looks like she's talking to a ninja turtle.

I still can't figure out what's in the background of that picture -- but that stick really threw me off.

This one was at a restaurant in the middle of the Everglades, the Miccosukee Restaurant (it's in a Miccosukee Indian reservation).  They're right on the swamp, and had my dog with me while going down to photograph the swamp. I was warned the dog would make a great snack, and to keep her away from the swamp. Sure enough, this guy came along.



That's as close as you'll get -- I wasn't using a zoom lens, it was my standard 35-70 (14-35).

AB, if we just keep posting in this thread, maybe others will join in. I saw that KC has a camera/camera phone in another thread, so we'll get her to post here too.

SK needs to post more as well.

Conan?  Christopher?  Everyone has a camera phone nowadays.

Anyway, this is a through-the-windshield shot of Chicago. I didn't have time on a recent trip there to get pictures (story of my life -- always too little time for photography).

Decided to go a little moodier with the rain clouds by using the dodge tool. Even though Gotham is supposed to be NYC, The Willis Tower in Chicago really reminds me of Gotham and the Batman movies. And since I was driving through just before a bad rain storm, it was perfect mood lighting.

Took this one in San Francisco this past summer. With my phone. I have to say I kinda love it.

 

I like street photography. That's the only way I enjoy taking photos of people. Portraits are too intimate for me. Intrusive even. And I like capturing random (but meaningful, at least visually, to me) moments. I like to observe people from a distance.

The way I take my pictures pretty much reflects who I am as a person ;)

I like the way you captured that moment. There's emotion in the shot. Loneliness, age, neglect, solitude (the street, the buildings, the man, all empty and left alone, falling apart), and the juxtaposition at the bottom of the street of the younger group of friends, bright shiny car.  It's a great shot. :)

Driving straight across Missouri along I-70E, it was field after field of turbines. Again, no time to pull over, so I was able to snap this out the passenger window while driving. I'm sure it could be better if I stopped, but I was awake nearly 24 hours straight and hoping to make it back to TN before it got too late.  This and the Chicago photo (above) were iPhone photos.  There's a lot of grain. But, I still like it.  (I've since upgraded to a Galaxy S5, which has a better camera.)
