Rajasthan, India

India has fascinated me – so many bright colours, amazing sights and most importantly: wonderful people. I’ve met so many interesting people during our short trip to Delhi, Jaipur and Pushkar, it was incredible.

I often feel as if I’m a thief, I’m an intruder stealing a picture. But of course, that’s the wrong mindset. I should be confident and happy that I’ve found an interesting character, who I’d like to take a picture of to tell a story. Once I show the final photo to the subject, the person often smiles and is happy – I’ve seen something interesting in him/her and captured it.

So really, as soon as I change into this mindset and openly approach my subject, asking ‘how are you’ and chat a little, it becomes easier to take a better picture. And of course, a smile helps. That’s how I managed to shoot the following pictures of some great characters in India.

Let me introduce you to this men in Jaipur, he was having tea at his doorstep – he smiled at me and even offered me to share a cup of tea with him…

In general, I really enjoyed all the colours everywhere. This men was sitting in front of a blue wall in the pink city of Jaipur, just watching me taking pictures. He waved at me to come over and take his picture too.

Finally, a few steps down the street were four men having a nice chat in the morning – they just stopped briefly so I could take the picture – then they continued as if nothing had happened. A perfect Saturday morning in Jaipur it seems…

Israel – Street Photography, Photos of People on Benches

I’ve just returned from Israel and uploaded the photos, and there’s a good bit to sift through. While I was doing a quick overview, I noted that several of the images were made of people on benches. While not an intentional project, they came about while doing street photography. They were all made with a 35mm lens. While out photographing on the streets I mostly use a 35mm lens as it gives me enough distance to not be intrusive, while including enough of the surroundings to give a sense of place. They were made in either Tel Aviv or Jerusalem. I hope you like them and that they provide a view of the varied people of Israel. Please feel free to comment.

The Number 25

A few more from practicing with the new digital compact. I’ve now worked out how to show the focus point in the optical viewfinder but still can’t see if the subject’s sharp or not until I check the file. It is progress I suppose, but no doubt the battery will expire even sooner.

I took these yesterday, when London had quite a bit of really bright, low sun burning through the mist. I shot a few from bus windows travelling down the Kingsland Road in Hackney and more on foot as I walked from Spitalfields to Soho through The City.

The girl with no shoes was a good start and I and I always stop if I see bomb damage from The Blitz (or a dog on a bike). Oxford Circus at dusk is usually impressive and I was lucky with the bus heading towards it as I think about pictures for our Christmas card.
