Bird feeding

Still taking it easy on my knee so thought I would post something from my travels to England. This is a shot of a boy feeding the pigeons in Trafalgar Square in London in 2003. Shortly after this I sold my film cameras for digital for the newspaper work I was doing. A couple of years earlier I had sold my Olympus gear in favor of Nikon for autofocus which I really needed. I bought a pair of Nikon F100 bodies with MB-15 drives and a bunch of Tokina pro series lenses. The lens used for this shot (and for most of my shooting on this trip) was a pedestrian Tokina 24-200mm superzoom. Not a real great lens but did fine for what I wanted - something that allowed me to go wide and long without having to carry multiple bodies and lenses. For film, I used Kodak Tri-X which I pushed to ISO1600 so I could shoot inside or outside. All the film from this trip was push-processed in D-76 1:1 mix.

So much wrong

This image seems to have a lot wrong with it. Seems like I should have gone with a wider aperture to help drive the viewer's focus more on the people in the image. Instead, I shot it at f8 and there seems (IMO) that too much is vying for attention in the photograph. But, like they say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.


And aren't we always our own worse critic?

BETTER COFFEE

Used the server's t-shirt for the title but it is her look toward the handsome customer that caught my eye. She seems quite enamored with him!

Out of step

There always seems to one in the group that wants to be different. Not sure if this girl was doing this intentionally or her subconscious got her to be out of step. But it did get me to hang on to the image.
