The Look !
I struggled to find a shot on First Friday and ended up with this photograph of a girl with a red hat on the 2 Nd street in Philadelphia PA.
I thought she looked like Christina Hendricks?
‘When people look at my pictures I want them to feel the way they do when they want to read a line of a poem twice.’
Street photography, also sometimes called candid photography, is photography conducted for art or inquiry that features unmediated chance encounters and random incidents within public places.
‘There is a creative fraction of a second when you are taking a picture. Your eye must see a composition or an expression that life itself offers you, and you must know with intuition when to click the camera. That is the moment the photographer is creative. Oop! The Moment! Once you miss it, it is gone forever.’
