Over Rail - canon 20d

First off, I would like to congratulate my good friend Shane on the birth of his daughter, Tristen!

I have contributed a few words to Thomas Pindelski on the launch of his fantastic new book, Street Smarts. Check out my mini-review here. I'd recommend the book to anyone interested in street photography or street life, it's full of great images. Thomas has a real eye for finding humour in his subjects while at the same time allowing us to empathise instead of ridicule.

It's been a frustrating couple of weeks for me in some ways but I hope this weekend will mark a bit of a turnaround, fingers crossed!

    Remind me to get you to write some text for me when I have a book, nice words and looks like a great book, maybe worth a purchase.

    Another really well executed shot and processing.

    Have a nice weekend Miles.

    The ground beeing out of focus gives it a sort of model-like appearance, which I like very much!

    Sweet shot man. I love how the sky turned out in this shot. Perfect composition too -- the angle this was taken from lends a lot of interest to the subject.

    Miles, no hablo muy bien el inglés y son nuevo en esto de los fotoblog. Este medio es el único que econtré para comunicarme contigo y agradecerte tu comentario a mi fotografía en el blog. Por cierto para decirte que esta imagen junto a los retratos son los que me han gustado de tu photoblog...y no son palabras de cortesia claro está...esta especialmente porque me identifica un poco con la idea de mi proyecto. Un saludo coridal desde Chile.
