Week #7 of Project 52 and a much needed "mind meld" from me is in order for creative ideas of subject matter. ...
There's a power and beauty to these images that remind of something I'd see in a gallery showing. It's your composition and use of space, and the processing of course, but it's more than that, there's an intimate feeling that you somehow capture that's inviting and makes you want to know more, almost as if we are there with you. I hope you continue on this! S-


Thank you Steve !!! Your descriptive kind comments is a encouragement and is very much appreciative.

Week #8 and moving right along !!! I went out Sunday for awhile and came back with a couple of images that were make do. Not being satisfied I went out again Monday. Struggling for unique subject matter, I was about to give up for the day because I was running into a lighting issue. Having been to Devou Park Drees Pavilion many a time to capture one of my favorite places for skyline shots of Cincinnati. Most may be getting tired of seeing the same ole', same ole', but I can't help myself. I like what I like and I'm sure you do as well. Soooo ..... here is another Cincinnati skyline image.

However, after the skyline was taken, I just happen to see a couple taking selfies with a cellphone. I debated with myself for a couple of minutes only to force myself to approach them. My stumbling words were "Okay, I'm gonna step out of my comfort zone to talk to strangers". I gave them a card with my info, "I would like to take a few shots of you two", "email me and I'll send you digital copies". The rest is history, and they were more than happy. A win, win situation. Here is Tyrone and Miss Cynthia, was the term introduced to me.

Afterwards, I crawled back into my shell and went home. This why I say street photography/street portraits is therapeutic, for me !!!

wonder no more... I am enjoying the low saturation sky line over the trees and river - I think cityscapes and cloudy skies work well. And your people shots are wonderful

Massive clouds from a low sky pressing down on the cityscape - very effective! Tyrone's love for Miss Cynthia comes across so naturally and beautifully in the first of those three shots. And she looks confident and appreciative of his admiration. I like that shot very much.

Wonderful images of Tyrone and Miss Cynthia, especially like the last one. You captured personality + relationship. Excellent! I am sure they enjoyed them. When I converse with street photo subjects, I always offer images to be sent by email. When photographing the homeless, I offer to bring a print the next time I'm there. I've never had anyone turn me down.
