People 2


Done some spying and zooming (with good intention!) ..The lady was fixing the pot plant holder(see larger ) , getting it ready for her spring flowers, i guess :)
Slowly, am building up my guts to take photos of strangers on the streets and when doing they're daily activities.. to give you an idea of how life is here .

Hi Kris...am catching up after a week away...like this one and the church photo!

deepthi thinks said...

the pic is very well taken... kudos!

Adrian said...

Good luck taking the photos of people. It's somethign that can cause lots of nerves!

bob said...

Nice shot. I find that if I stay in the same place for long enough with a camera, I become part of the landscape and people don’t take much notice of me

Hi Kris! For many years it has been a dream of mine to take pictures of people (character skethes) in black & white. Someone gave me a present more than a year ago, a Nikon D70 Digital Camera. I know I should just do it! But I have to break through some limitations then. Lets see what happens. If it does, you might hear from me again.

Kris said...

Bob, LOL ..thats so true :D

menggarang said...

I like your people shots( children, woman reading newspaper), and this one is great, so keep it going!!

Nicola said...

Nice photo! I'm being shy with photographing people as well. Bob's tip is helpful - I'll try that next time.

Felicia said...

Hi, With the B&W, this shot reminds me of the movie Rear Window by Alfred Hitchcock. Very nice. For posed shots when I ask people, I find that they feel honored to have their picture taken. It is a lot harder to get candid pictures of people - I'll have to try Bob's advice!

Sam said...

That is an interesting shot of that woman!

sravanthi yellapragada said...

hello!!!...have neva been to Hungary..but it seems to be a cool place...nice work!!! :D

Adam Lee Dalziel said...

ha - yeah its hard to take photos of strngers without feeling awkward - once you get past it, its fine - the next step - which i sadly have not taken - is to go up and ask interesting looking people if you can take a picture of them - One day soon I will get the confidence.

Great photo by the way.

This is a very natural and beautiful pic, grey scale adds beauty to it.

Natalie said...

I have never been Hungary, but now I can see your little town one photograph at a time. I especially like this post. Anyhow, I have the same problem photographing strangers. I should try Bob's suggestion.

Grant F said...

i like this picture...very natural. i still have a bit of a problem about just taking pictures of random strangers, but bob's advice looks pretty sound...will give it a try!

Ggraph said...

Kris,
Great photo of the woman. This type of photo can be very hard to pull off. You've done it very well.
Best Regards,
Mark

Kris said...
