Like the colors, but there’s also a twist to this pic. Do you see it?
My Project Time is change (#TIC)is slowly picking up speed. Now there’s a page in my portfolio/project section on this site, where you can check it out. #TIC is at the moment (sic) what broods my mind the most, so I’ll soon update with more pics.
Been photowalking in Stockholm only a few times, last occasion was in September last year (2015). But it pays off to review older pics. So here, a totally new set on an old event.
Half the pics I’ve redone since last year, half are all new.
It’s kind of strange, how you can fall in love with a pic afterwards (in processing), even if you at the photo-moment didn’t think of is as something special.
I give you the girl that’s “Looking for the rabbit“.
Whenever I walk the streets, I look a lot for people in all shapes and of all kinds of action. Well aware that my presence alone manipulates reality (as it should be), I really don’t believe inte the so-called paradigm of candid street photography: “To not interact or influence what’s happening.”
You can read more about my stand on this with “rules” in street photography here (click). That said, Ive seen how the interaction between photographer and motif results in moments that change over time. Because time is change.
Here’s an example of what I’m talking about.
On social media (for example Instagram) I use the hashtag #tic for these pics.
I love people, I really do. That might also be one of the main reasons why I like street photography so much. People and their everyday business are extraordinary.
While in Lisbon a month ago, I met many interesting people. One of the most memorable moments is one in Alfama. Where two women, half seriously, half for fun discussed what football team is the best. Becausecheering for Benfica or Sporting is not always a laughing matter, I can assure you.
I’ve shown you a pic of Tia Benfica before. Here a series of her discussing important issues with a friend and relative, right i front of us having a glass of wine (or two).
Not all pics I took, just some. I’m not finished with all the nice pics from Lisbon a month ago, so I’ll add a few more later on but still, here is a start… (click).
Another picture from Lisbon, where the backdrop means a lot. Colourful houses helps, right?
Within a couple a weeks, I’ll add a gallery with several of my Lisbon pictures…
