Is it broken?

IMG_1054.jpg

After jumping off the stage at the end of his set… Marcel, Lead vocals and guitar of band called Die Hexe , announced to the audience that he thought he broke his ankle.

For the rest of the show, he was be asked probably around 100 times.. if it was broken..

no word yet from the doctor whether or not it is actually broken.. but pretty punk rock regardless of the outcome.

Canon 60D Kit lens blah blah blah

Anti portraits?? Headless photos?

I dono.

Interesting perspective of viewing people. What would you assume differently about a person if you never saw their face?

Thanks for reading.

To Wonder.

Image

 

I look at this and have to wonder the amount of hours that have gone into each one of the instruments in the back ground. All the life decisions made that were to find each one of the musicians playing the bottom floor of Penn Station in New York City. Only to have thousands of people rush by them with out a simple notice.

I like to think how many other musicians are there walking by these ones that wish they could have a golden opportunity to play such a high traffic area.

I like to think of how many people think that these musicians are just homeless people with an electric guitar, percussion pieces, and a stand up bass.

This photo was taken In Penn Station, in New York City, during a peak return home rush hour(s). Shot on a Yashica FX-D Quartz 50mm with 35mm Black and white C-41 film. – 2.0A with a 1/90 shutter. No Flash. – I was originally going to photograph jsut the band, but then got the idea of having people rush past them. I was standing safely beside a support pillar, as to not have thousands of people knock into me. – This was a break in the traffic, just enough that you can see a band playing in the back, as people blurr by. That’s one way to put it… Blurr by.

 

Thank you for reading this.

 

Faces on Film.

I recently found a Yashica FX-D Quartz 35mm SLR at a value village for 20 bucks.

On C-41 black and white film.

This is the first roll of like 8 that I got put on a disc. (Meaning digital)

Here are some faces that were on the roll.

The French Subway.

The Subway in France is quiet and built by Canadians. – That’s all I have to say.

Not sure what station this is from, you could probably zoom in if you are familiar with the french subway system and figure out where it is. –

This shot may seem like it is taken of a lady walking away from the train as it is leaving. – But I actually took this shot to try and capture the older lady in the background. I noticed when we pulled into the stop that she was sitting on the bench. I assumed that she would get up once the doors open on the train and get in. But she did not. She remained sitting in that position. –

A helpless wonder came over me and I couldn’t come to a conclusion of what her story might be.

I don’t ride the subway a lot. Where I’m from we only have buses. So the idea of someone just sitting in a station and not eager to jump on the train is a totally new perspective. – In fact, the next time I’m free in a city with a Metro, I am planning on spending a few hours sitting in a station to observe and interesting culture that I would say is rarely observed with intent.

Graham

This is Graham. He is a friend of mine. – I like this photo because over the course of the trip I tried to get a shot of Graham acting natural but he always spotted me pointing the lens at him. – I quite possibly have over 50 shots of Graham making a funny face. Anyway, this was one of my favorite shots that I snapped of him. – Also, I think the Black and White really turned out nice. –

The best part of this photo is that it is actually out of focus. – My attempt was to focus the lens on Grahams face, in which I did, but if you have ever ridden on A subway before you will know that it is not the smoothest of rides. So, Initially I focused on his face, but just as I did my body swayed backwards a bit just slightly pulling the face out of focus enough that (to me at least) it makes this picture hard to look at because your eyes are searching for the focal point. –

The thing I don’t like about this shot is the ladies head to the left side. – It almost makes the entire photo rubbish. – However, It dawned on me that, having the the head in the picture gives another accurate depiction of a subway car, and shows just how crammed we are in the moving metal veins of the city.

Sketch.

So, while footloose in Paris. I made the effort to step out of my photography comfort zone and intentionally take some pictures of people. – This was the first photo of that effort. – This guy just screams character and some form of story to tell. – He was sitting on this window ledge and sketching Le/La “Bibliothèque Mazarine“. This is located directly across the river from the Louvre, as well the “Lock Love Bridge”. (or what ever it’s called)- 

Come to think of it, This guy could have been one of those street painters who sold their quite impressive art work around these parts of Paris. But, I’m not sure, this guy just seemed way to relaxed to be one of those high strung street hustlers.
