I wish the dancing man was facing me, but the older gentleman suggest a different story. Street Photography in Black & White fills up my portfolio. Professionals told me to publish only my best pictures. How can I do that when my best image is always the next one. Instead of a traditional portfolio, I am sharing what crosses my lens and gave me great pleasure to make. My training is more traditional with drawing and painting. Like the great Henri Cartier Bresson once said « a photo is a drawing in 1/250th of a second).
I don’t know who said « F8 and be there » but that’s what happened here. my goal was to watch out for subject separation. I don’t like when subjects are melted into each other’s, unless it’s on purpose. The little girl behind the fence is the good surprise I didn’t plan.
Quai Vauban offers a very cool perspective for Street Photography. Find a spot and wait for the right subject to come by. In this cas, I was walking by and saw this great character. It was pure luck that the canal offered a nice perspective in the background. Icing on the cake is the giant plastic butterfly hanging above the water.
