Watching the world go by


I shot this a couple of weeks back during one of my recent rides on our public transit system. I was actually facing the opposite way and simply holding my camera in my arms sideways. I’m almost certain the guy in the foreground heard the shutter click, but I didn’t care. The scene and subject was too good to pass up.

So I spent yesterday going through literally tens of thousands of photos, cherry picking the keepers for my next book. My plan is to have them printed as 4 x 6s first so I can lay them all out and organize them based on which photo goes with which on the page. It’s a major freakin’ task and to be honest I’m never in the mood for it. Very tedious work. I’m actually dividing them up into two books, one black & white and the other in colour. If I can have at least the b/w one done before Christmas I’ll be a happy guy. Fingers crossed.

    Great shot! Some wonderful images can be captured from within public transport and you have demonstrated that point with this photo.

    Good luck with the book project, something that would a fantastic experience, but yes, a major freakin’ task!!

  2. In my opinion, a very evocative photo. Wonderful balance of high key and low key in a single frame. It begs the question: “What are they looking at?”

    Nice get. The shutter click can give you away 🙂 I really like the full tonal range here – makes for a great black and white.
