I thought this was cool; no, not because of the altered depth of field, but because all the people in the frame are caught in different motions; including the subject herself. There is also a sense of multiple directions – all make for a nicely composed candid. The multiple layers work well in giving the illusion that the viewer is actually there. A sense that I think is very important in street photography. I wonder what she was listening too? I had on some Dash Berlin pumping through my headphones when I got lost and shot this.
I’m not sure where the traffic is coming from (perhaps my old Flickr page), but I’ve recently got some unexpected visitors to this page. So, in the interest of having a place to share photos of subjects other than automotive, I’ve decided to start actively updating my personal blog. I think I’ll change the theme around a bit to something a little more photo friendly as well. I am mainly going to concentrate on my street photography, but I will throw some nice landscapes in as well. It’s time to board the wrong train again.
I shot this wandering around the outskirts of Shinjuku station this afternoon. I was in search of a music store that had some really good tablature for Japanese rock bands. My luck though, either the store doesn’t exist anymore, or I was completely lost. On a related side note, I went to Yokohama yesterday to go to a different music store; and that one, however, had been replaced by a Book Off. I ended up finding some 100 yen Option mags though, so happy ending I guess.
