Seven Day Black & White Photo Challenge — Street Photography: Day 4

My friend Sarah at Art Expedition is hosting a variation on the Seven Day B&W Challenge — this time the image must include people.

The rules are:

• Thank the person who has nominated/tagged you and provide a link to their blog.

• Go out and take pictures of complete strangers for 7 days in a row and post one of them each day of the challenge (you can also post 7 photos in one post if you´re more comfortable with this).

• The photos should be in b/w.

• Nominate as many people as you like

As always, I’m not a fan of individual nominations, but invite everyone to take part in this if you can fit it in your blogging schedule. And don’t forget to visit Sarah’s blog and see her Berlin street photography.

Night coming on strong

The post title comes from the Roy Orbison song ‘When the Blue Hour Comes.’

The good times are all gone
The night keeps coming on so strong
You can’t hold on, no matter what you do
Will there be someone who cares for you
When the blue hour comes?
When the blue hour comes?

And when your restless heart
Tears your world apart
And everywhere you turn
It’s falling down on you
Will there be a light that shines for you?

I couldn’t find a recording of Orbison singing it, but I do like this version by Joan Osborne.

Seven Day Black & White Photo Challenge — Street Photography: Day 3

My friend Sarah at Art Expedition is hosting a variation on the Seven Day B&W Challenge — this time the image must include people.

The rules are:

• Thank the person who has nominated/tagged you and provide a link to their blog.

•  Go out and take pictures of complete strangers for 7 days in a row and post one of them each day of the challenge (you can also post 7 photos in one post if you´re more comfortable with this).

• The photos should be in b/w.

• Nominate as many people as you like

I’m still not quite up to going out shooting street photography, but when I saw Sarah’s latest shot of a group together in space and time, but without engagement, it reminded me of this group I saw at Munich airport a few years ago. Four young women in the same uniform of mini-skirts, black tights, ankle boots (the closest two were wearing identical boots) and black jackets — all utterly focused on their phones.

As always, I’m not a fan of individual nominations, but invite everyone to take part in this if you can fit it in your blogging schedule. And don’t forget to visit Sarah’s blog and see her Berlin street photography.

Seven Day B&W Challenge — Street Photography: Day Two

I’ve barely got off the couch today — muscle aches, sore head and a slight fever suggesting a touch of flu. Luckily, I shot a few photos at Orakei Wharf yesterday.

So here is one I prepared earlier — the big brother (I think) of my pensive boy from yesterday.
