The Photographer

Taken in Venice, last August.

This is Jakarta, Old Jakarta to be precise.

We have learned the hard way to wait 24 hours for our bags to catch up when travelling to Indonesia. This short stop allowed us to take in the local scene.

Initially the sight of such poor lives saddened me, but I quickly realised these people weren’t visibly sad. Despite the squalor and stench I saw plenty of smiles and even a few laughs.

We were nearly a week at sea before the chance for a short excursion where I took this photo. Simple lives with, seemingly, few material possessions but there were broad smiles all round.

Thanks for your patience and London’s streets will be back from next week!

These were all taken last week. I love how London just shines through in these small frames… actually I have walked past New York streets similar to image no.1…

It’s probably useful to note, from a street photography tip point of view, I had a mind to capture these images before I left my own house. Of course the people, their expressions and placement in scenes is random, but I sought out the photography that was already in my head.

Do you plan your street photography like this?

There are always shots you couldn’t conceive of running into however, with this planning, I never return with an empty card.

I’m offline for a few weeks now with a special travel project so please subscribe for emails, if you haven’t already, and you can forget about me until I pop up in your mail box!

Happy street shooting all!

I realise January is a tough month, so I’m releasing a high quality PDF (26MB) version of my book, ‘London Moments’, suitable for PC, Tablets and Smartphones! It’s priced at a super friendly, pay what you think it’s worth.

Some days I return with 100 frames, mediocre at best. Some days I return with a single great photo.

Yesterday was a good day.
