Making friends in India's narrow neighborhoods

Visiting Ghaziabad for a friend of mine's wedding earlier this year, I had a few opportunities to explore the densely packed neighborhoods of his village. What I discovered was that for a lot of the younger people I came across, I was the first white American they had ever seen, and that more than anything they love to have their photo taken. I...

Street Art

I really enjoy street photography & street portraits. I also enjoy photographing street art such as murals, chalk drawing on pathways & graffiti. I do wonder if images of street art are genuine street photography, or just plagiarism & claiming the credit for work done by some else. Any comments?

Palermo street food at night

More description about the situation is on my blog:

I know about the out of focus guy in the front, I neet to get better with that but I hope it doesn't distract too much from the rest.

The guys on the left prepare, cook and grill Frutti di Mare during the evening and into the night. There are...

What's the best bag for street photography?

What bag for street photography? Now there's an interesting question - and not an easy one to answer.

Over the years, I've experimented with just about every bag imaginable and I have yet to find the 'ideal' bag. Four Billinghams, at least six Domkes, a couple of Foggs, a Tenba messenger, several Think Tanks, numerous Crumplers and many...

Streets of India

No matter where you are, how you are, what conditions you are in, how hard life is, giving yourself some time and living for yourself for just a brief moment may give you the strength to go to the next level.

Paris at night

Hi everybody,
For my first post in this group, I would like to share this picture I shot in Paris, the 1st of june 2016.
For the story, the Seine river was in flood, after several days of rains. Hard night to walk in Paris this night, with my D810 under all this water falling from the sky, but what a cool atmosphere this night !...

Flashback - Downtown Silver Spring, Maryland

I was in the library the other day and came across a book about Historic Silver Spring. The date published was about 2005 and got curious about its contents. Took a few snapshots of the pages of areas I recognized and went off to look for the spots.

The truck image was Georgia Ave and Sligo Age. Top image was taken in 1971, and the...

Fujifilm X Tips & Tricks

Here are some tips & tricks I have picked up in my time with the X-Pro2, although most will relate to other X cameras.

What's your best tip for these fairly unique cameras?


Well, this is the first photograph I post there since I'm a member (sick!).

What a romantic atmosphere to be in Italy (Sicilly) and listen a nice street musician.

But the reality face to something more rude. Coming from South Spain, Cesar try to rally the north of Europe by playing his spanish guitar in the best tourist location...

Burned Artistry

I shot this amazing photo a few months ago when I traveled to New Orleans. It was a gloomy day and as I was passing on the tram I immediately hopped off and ran back to this building. It was a terrible sight to see and i hope no one was seriously injured. But the art behind it all brought this structure back to life through my lens. Enjoy!

Would welcome some Critique

Hi everyone, I have only been making photographs for the past 9 months and have come to really appreciate street photography as a genre.

Any constructive critique would be greatly welcomed
