After work today, I rushed down to the city to run some important errands and settle some urgent matters. In the midst of rush and time-chasing, I felt the sudden urge to whip out the PEN which I carry with me all the time these days, and started snapping away. After finishing up all the items I had in my to-do list, I looked at my watch, and there was enough time left for some shutter therapy action, before the sun went down. It was already approaching sunset, and the light was dying fast. Without wasting much time, I did what I could, no matter how brief the shooting session was, it was done at my own pace. And I enjoyed myself thoroughly. At the end of the walk, I felt, recharged and refreshed.
All images were taken with Olympus PEN E-PL1 and Pansonic Lumix 20mm F1.7 pancake lens.
Lost in thoughts
Whats wrong with getting your subject to smile for your camera? So what if it is not truly street photography? I still love it that way.
Face in hands
touched by the golden sun
Alive amongst textiles
Arms and legs.
Lamp against dimming sky.
The photo-walk took longer than expected, and I walked further than I intended too. I could not help it, I got engrossed and every single time I click the shutter button it felt sooooooo good. Gosh, i think I must be on drugs.
Initially I was thinking to write a long entry, commenting on composition techniques, or some commonly used camera settings that I adopted for my photography style, which have been requested numerous times by my readers. After reviewing all the photographs, I felt a tinge of satisfaction, and through that contentment I have decided not to blog my usual lengthy writing and just, let the photographs speak for themselves.
I hope you guys enjoyed the photographs, as spontaneous and as unplanned as they could ever be. Sometimes, a little suddenness can add flavor and spice up our lives.
