On The Streets


Ever since I took Darrah Parker's course "Slice of Life Project" I'm drawn to look at people's feet - and I love to photograph them, too. Though it's still very hard for me to take pictures of people (yes, even if it's only their feet), but I do find it a bit easier when concentrating not on their faces but on the ground, hoping they won't notice my taking photos.

So here is another contribution for Justine's "Movement in March" and I guess you have to be prepared to see a few more feet...

As I like the black and white version here, I'll also link it up to Black and White Wednesday.

Have a wonderful day!

This is a great capture, Rosie! I'm very shy about photographing people too.

This is wonderful. I also tremble in fear at taking photos of strangers. Just cannot bring myself to do it.

What a great idea - I'd never thought of taking photos of feet - but this is a great example of why I should give it a go.

I love pictures of feet too. It's fun to do something unexpected and leave out the faces!

Love this perspective, Rosie and the processing fits it nicely. Love it!

I need to get to our downtown and do this before the month is over! I'm sure I will feel funny doing this as well- hope I don't get strange looks.

Love this! When I was in Paris for my honeymoon, I wanted to photograph all the people on the streets, but I didn't want to be obvious, so I started holding my camera at my hip and just pressing the shutter a bunch of times, so nobody knew I was taking photos. I got a lot of fun photos that way!

I find that photographing 'parts of people' sometimes more of a story than a straight on portrait. This is a fun shot!
