Weird Moments Frozen in Time

There’s a serendip­i­ty to street pho­tog­ra­phy.

There are times when you wait for­ev­er for things to come togeth­er, exact­ly as you envi­sion them, and there are times when you just snap and see what comes from the pieces you see devel­op­ing. 

This is a snap. It’s not high art for street shoot­ing. But I like it. 

I think this pho­to makes the point about what’s so great about still pho­tog­ra­phy. We walk by lit­tle moments like this every day, but because we’re in a rush, our mind is else­where, or just that we don’t see things as a frozen blink of time—we miss these moments. I’m forc­ing you to look at them. And hope­ful­ly mak­ing you smile.

What do you see in this image? For me, it’s the ges­tures, the repeat­ing bench­es, the reflec­tions, the work­er guy scuf­fling off some­where… 

It reminds me of why I start­ed to love pho­tog­ra­phy in the first place. Pho­tog­ra­phy by peo­ple like WeeGee (the Famous!) and Gar­ry Wino­grad showed me what fun a moment of real life can be when caught on, ummm film, well, pix­els… let’s just say when it’s ‘cap­tured’.
