– life on the streets of a big little city on the Gulf Coast –



I am continually amazed at how close I can be to someone with my camera in their face and they don’t even notice me.

  1. 1) Good shot … 2) Cool to see two, hopefully Lesbians, holding hands in public … 3) Looking at the crowd, they appear to be the only two who are trying to have “good bodies”… 4) Did they have to dodge you? 5) Any idea what they were looking at?

    • The one on the left didn’t look like she was in a mood to dodge anyone so I prudently got out of her way. Nope, don’t have a clue what they were looking at. Thanks for commenting… 🙂

    Nice diagonal between the couple on the left and the great sky on the upper right! These days everyone is fiddling with their smartphones or what not … I guess that’s why nobody pays attention! Excellent shot with everything sharp but nothing harsh and perfect exposure!

    • I still have a bit to learn but for this image I used a new black & white conversion software that I just got called Tonality Pro. I have Lightroom and Photoshop but am liking Tonality Pro better so far. The white border is a bit tacky but I couldn’t resist. 🙂

      Most people are indeed preoccupied, or perhaps self-centered. But there are plenty who notice me and the look they give me is not always pleasant. I blogged about that in a photo essay, https://streetstpete.files.wordpress.com/2015/09/if-looks-could-kill.pdf

  3. I like the angels in this, a kind of architectural display of bodies and limbs; the extended leg in the far right is wonderful. It is amazing you can be right there and no protesting! It must be the Kardashion effect, everyone expects to be admired and collected and displayed. I remember some of your interesting street portraits from Livingston, willing subjects.

    • I love the way a camera can freeze moments otherwise lost in the ebb & flow of life. Teaches us to see better, and with humility. Thanks…

  4. PS And I love the bleed out edges all around, especially with black and white, great look to it.
