Street photography. More than snapping people

Strangers united
This lady stepped forward, curious, and at that moment I noticed that she was aligned with two other people in the background. Instinctively I pressed the shutter, uniting this little group of strangers in a photographic composition.

The image gives form to the idea that we are constantly physically and mentally joining groups, sometimes at random and at other times out of choice, like the tour party in the background, aware or unaware of our behaviour.

I am pleased I noticed the moment everything clicked into place.

For me street photography is far more than just taking random snaps of people in the street.

Till soon,

Tiny details that matter


On the Burg in Brugge looking toward the Tompouce, terrace filled with people enjoying the sunshine. In the background you see the Halletoren. Brugge is a magical place.

I particularly liked the way the light etched out the gables and lit the terrace and the small group standing chatting on the Burg. To the left of the frame the light is just catching the greenery in the flower boxes at the edge of the terrace. The lady with the grey hair on the left sitting in the sunshine helps balance the composition. All of these tiny details come together to create an interesting image.

A few minutes later and the beauty created by the light had gone. It’s one of those moments. When you see it you have to grab it.

Till soon,

Paul
