Streets of Windsor … Take 2

Black and White, Monochrome, Photography, Street Photography, Windsor

I suppose you can say one of my favourite places to practice the art of street photography is Windsor, Berkshire, England. Why!?! I can blend in as a tourist and no one will think twice of me pointing the camera their way. I hit up the streets of Windsor this week. This time though I used my 50mm and shot these at f3.2, except for one that was at f8. I think I will shoot more wide open in the future as I like the results.

For this little guy I asked the Mother’s permission and then asked him if I could take his picture. He was so adorable that I just had to take his picture.

My photography bug has truly bitten and bitten hard where now I feel the urge to get out and about with my camera. However, the work life gets in the way of that. I am thankful for days off though and hoping to get out there and get to shooting.

Here are a few images, which I mostly shot in Windsor on Saturday. I found some window displays that were interesting as well as a shop full of “antiques”. Now I cannot say for certain if the whole shop of stuff was “antiques” or made to look like they are.

Streets of Windsor – People

Visited Windsor yesterday and thought I my as well take the camera along to see what I could find interesting. Quite a lot actually. It was a heavy cloudy day so no sunlight to speak off and skies were dull.

From people to buildings to shop displays. For today I share the shots of people that made the cut.

Tourists is what makes the world go round.

Looking at me with my camera, you bet I am taking a picture of you.

I love it when tourists pose for a picture gives me a chance to take a shot too… I was trying to take a shot of the buildings but these 3 got in the way so I left them there.

Hello to you all. I have not posted for a while and for that matter haven’t really been out shooting much with “the big” camera (DSLR). I tend to go through these stages from time to time, usually when I am waiting for a change in seasons, which is getting close now.

However, I have been shooting things with my lovely Samsung S5 phone. As it is (nearly) always with me and easy to take a shot of stuff and things that catch my eye. I process my phone shots using Snapseed and VSCO apps. I then share them via Instagram and I have also recently signed up for VSCO. I am not quite sure how the VSCO grid works really, but I do like the app and the filters available.

Street Photography–Windsor

Black and White, England, Monochrome, Photography, Street Photography, Windsor

Took along my camera with only 50mm lens attached to Windsor yesterday to practice more street photography. I had more fails then successes. I tried shooting without raising the camera to my eye  most of the time resulted in fails.

Here are the successes from the outing.

Street_Smokers The Fudge Seller

The two on the right had no idea I was taking a photo of them I have titled this one ‘the smokers’. The chap on the right posed for me and is the one and only person I interacted with. This one is titled ‘the fudge seller’, he entertained the public to entice them into the fudge shop. I have decided I must interact more with my subjects to get these kind of shots.

Street_Selfie_1 Street_Selfie_2

‘the selfies’, couldn’t resist these two shots. The family selfie is interesting. Guess those selfie sticks are getting around.

 Street_Shades_2 Street_Shades_1

‘in shades’, it was a beautiful sunny day.

Street_Cyclist_2 Street_Cyclist_1

‘the cylists’, these two were not together and was taken in different areas. I left these two in colour as I thought they worked well.

I am already looking forward to my next outing to the streets of somewhere in England, which is likely to be London, for more practice.
