No Paparazzi – Pinholeday contender #3

Photography

OK, it’s decision time. My decision is between this one and “Balloons For Sale.” Which one should I choose for my pinhole day contribution? Personally, I like this one the best. But I also really like “Balloons For Sale.”

I like this one because the moment was kind of cool. When I was taking this the newpaper vendor covered his face. I’m not sure if he was playing around with me or if he truly didn’t want his picture taken. Either way, it was a moment of connection with the subject, which doesn’t really happen very often with me because my subject is mostly landscape.

I will decide over the next couple of days and upload it to the gallery, so check there to see what I decided. The deadline is May 31, so I really need to get on this!

Photographer In The Sunbeams – Pinholeday Contender #2

Photography

My next WPPD contender is this one. However, I think I’ve already decided not to use it. When I first saw it I thought it was kinda good. I love it when I can get shots of the swirly, colorful sunbeams. But then I saw Howard Moiser’s version of this shot in WPPD Gallery. FUUUUCK. His really blows mine out of the water. Seriously, go check it out. It is awesome. This is what at master pinhole photographer’s work looks like 🙂

I love that I got to hang out with so many talented people on pinhole day! I have so much gratitude for the pinhole community.
