The Piano Man

Street Portraiture

I shot this portrait a few weeks back during an outing downtown. I processed it the day I shot it, but this is a re-processed version using Silver Efex Pro 2. That’s a plug-in for Lightroom that gives you more … Continue reading

No place to nap

This woman had set up shop on this park bench. It wasn’t that cold out if you were dressed for it, but if you were trying to sleep on a bench it must have been freezing. I shot this with … Continue reading
