Sorry I am unable to read all the threads as suffering an eye infection. Looks interesting but nobody has a monopoly on what is “street photography”. Go and take a photo of a cat sniffing at a drain and that’s street photography.Then I am never influenced by so called experts who regard their own opinion sacred and above all. The entire changes in the environment –lifestyle has in itself presented photographers with changes in subject matter. Gone are the scruffy urchins kicking a tin can about and the likes of good street photography matter of many decades ago. Who now prowl hedges seeking birds nests to photograph when you can sit on top of a RangeRover in Kenya with a long lens and come back with exotic images. Why bother setting up flood lights to take a proper portrait when you can go to the park for some snapshots. I am often tempted with street photography in mind (but never do) to concentrate on modern day cyclists. With their coloured lycra and bikes I see them as good subject matter. Funnily far better subject matter that organised cycling events. Often they have so much character yet which is natural. See if I can get some done. Some years ago and lost the file now I had one carrying their bike with the sweat pouring. There you are Peter , next months subject “street cyclists”.April 7, 2018 at 3:21 pm #16115
Very successful this months subject Peter–all well done. Think Wallace”s hand shake one is excellent as is your green handclap–good stuff.April 1, 2018 at 3:06 pm #16089
Thank you Peter. Ah well the red frame. this is to reflect the R.A.F. insignia , so we have red -white and blue———-which in turn reflects the Union Flag which —yep-you have guessed it–is red -white- and blue. ————–Per Ardua Ad Astra.—BTW this Harrier V.T.O.L. is one of my first digital images taken at Cosford.

Some commendable postings there. Now photographing children is easy–” Just don”t ” well that’s my advice. When people e-mail me pics of their kids I always delete from my computer, so much is misconstrued . Takes me back a bit though–asked to photograph peoples babies–what a nightmare–little brats. But the best when asked to photograph individual girl guides in a troupe. At their club room one evening , mums had sent them all groomed and washed faces looking very smart. I would deliver the photo”s next week. All went so well I drove home quite pleased with myself. There to discover I had no film in the camera. I still where dark sunglasses when ever I go that way as there is still a bounty on my head.March 29, 2018 at 7:29 pm #16058
I have posted some fullsize photo”s on Flicker of this scene , this small size file has not downsized to good. My curiosity Peter discovered they were lifting the roof to obtain extra height to accommodate taller lorries-so now we know. Have a look on Flicker.March 27, 2018 at 8:24 pm #16039
Well another slant on architecture, one we do not see very often.
