“Seeing is not enough; you have to feel what you photograph” – Andre Kertesz
What a capture, neatly composed! Beautiful light outside and in there. Incredible job Mark!
You have now made my day with your wonderful compliment 🙂 I’m always too critical and was not sure if I really liked this image but now I’m glad I posted it. Thank You
Ha Ha…Only a few posts on your blog says it all but I often wonder that must not be the case if one had to check your hard drive. Lol. On the other hand, we don’t just click, our instincts tell us to. Picture may be average but there’s always a thought behind it and that thought makes it unique and worth sharing. Keep posting your thoughts. Have a lovely day Mark!
You are so right my friend, lots of photos in my possession but the lack of posts also comes down to an incredible overload of distractions in my daily life which takes me away from posting more often however I really do appreciate the comments from yourself and all the other wonderful bloggers out there. You have yourself a nice day/evening as well.
gorgeous. i love how there are so many different things happening – each face has its own expression…beautiful shot, mark.
Thank you so much for leaving a comment! I find myself drawn to a different face every time I look so I’m so happy you notice this as well.
great candid…personally for me, anytime you can capture a mood or though unawares of the camera , it is a success
I agree, many times I’ve got an idea of what I want to capture but it’s difficult to get because the person looks over and the mood and vision I had changes. Sometimes that’s okay but many times it’s not what I’m after. Thanks a lot for your comment, looking forward to seeing more from you too.
Arjun said it 😀 Fantastic, Mark!!!!
That means a lot Paula 🙂 Thank you for your very gracious comment.
Another great photo … the lightbulb and the face say it all. T+A
Very kind of you to take the time and comment guys, it’s really appreciated. Speak to you soon
I really like the expression.
Thanks Malin 🙂 Have a fantastic Sunday.
The composition in this shot is breathtaking.
Wow, that is an incredible compliment 🙂 I can’t thank you enough for taking the time to leave some kind words.
You are most certainly welcome 🙂 I look forward to seeing more of your work.
Perfect title, great catch!
Thank you very much Tina. Hope you are doing well today?
Hi Jess, thank you very much 🙂 have a great day.
That is one candid shot, Mark! I wonder what’s going on in his mind:) Nice lighting and an apt title too!
Hi Uday, I find they all have an interesting look about them, I find myself looking at a different person each time I look. I do wonder like you what was going on his mind but that is one of the things that I love about street photography, we will never know the answer to your question. All the best & thanks for your comments.
you have captured a nice expression 🙂
Thank you Joshi 🙂 I hope you are doing well?
This is such a thoughtful and inspiring shot, the bright light of hope and goodwill. Beautifully composed!
Hi Patti, your comment and thoughts on this mean a lot, thank you for taking the time to have a close look at this 🙂
Congratulations face interrogation
Thanks for having a look, all the best.
I love the momment shots of faces in your blog.
Thank you kindly for your gracious comment. Have a great day or should I say evening on your side side of the world.
Really nice. The shadows and the persons create a natural framing. Beautifully done!
Thank you for the kind words and for stopping by:). Speak to you soon
Fabulous portrait, Mark. Beautiful tonal range and framing.
Thanks a lot Simon. I always see something different when I look back at this one. Appreciate you stopping in and commenting. Have a great day.
The framing of this shot is really fantastic, Mark. I have to say, his expression with that lightbulb couldn’t be any more perfect!
Hi Mike, thanks a lot for your comment. I’m glad you took the time to stop by and take a look around, it’s much appreciated. Have a great night.
Fascinating shot with so much going on that raises all sorts of questions. Also like the touch of humour with the guy’s pensive look and a light bulb going on on the other 🙂
Hi Noeline, thank you for taking such a close look, I love what you are getting out of this one. Whenever I come back to this, I seem to get something different out of it. For this particular shot I had some time to set up so it was a nice change from the ones that I have to take in split second. Have a great evening 🙂
Hi Mark, many thanks for liking the monochrome post on our site. That led me to take a look here, and I do really like this image for all the reasons people have already identified. If I might venture a suggestion, you might try lightening the face of the lady on the left, as her expression really adds again to the image and completes the tableau… this is certainly one I’d be proud to have taken! All the best, Ian
Hi Ian, love the feedback! I’m always very curious to hear about someone else’s thought process/vision after all for me it’s all about trying to grow as an amateur photographer. Hope to speak again in the near future – all the best Mark.
Thank you very much. Have a great day.
Nie będę oryginalny jeśli napiszę, że widać tu genialne wyczucie chwili.
Ale po polsku nikt jeszcze tego nie powiedział 😉
A fantastic multi-portrait. You have really captured strong relationships and lots of emotions in this photo. And the light is really beautiful.
Thank you so much Otto for the detailed assessment. This is one shot that I seem to come back to, it’s one I’m really happy with so I’m really glad you like this one.
I think you have every reason to be happy with this fantastic photo.
I wonder how you did to have your archived photos presented in such a cool way…
Title of this photo makes it a perfect spot to wonder this and btw thanks for the very nice compliment. I have everything organized in Aperture my editing program but a las Apple has stopped updating it so I’m going to have to move on to Lightroom or something else. I just don’t want to be bothered to learn a new program. I hope you have a good weekend planned?
Hi Mark, I don’t have Apple ;). This weekend the temperatures are above 32 Celsius, so it will be a lazy one with a moderate amount of exercise and photo shooting in the town. I hope you are not working either.
Personally I love that kind of heat. Busy weekend for me but not work related so it will be a very good one. In particular, my weekend ends with a Robert Plant concert which I’m really looking forward to.
Wow, that’s a concert I would gladly attend. This coming Tuesday I will go to a concert by 2 Cellos. If you haven’t heard of them, look them up 🙂
I haven’t so I will check them out.
