posters and peoples

I like to mix my people shots up with posters, and this looked like a great place to stop for a short time.  Trying not to make people feel uncomfortable I am pretty quick shooting and putting the camera down as they’ve walked through the scene. I captured this shot slightly too early  with the lady only entering the view but in the end I felt it had the most impact.

Summer is here, the peoples are out and about doing their thing…it is a good time to be alive.  I was shooting the streets  with my good mate Wing looking for that “decisive moment” and did we find it, well we found lots of them, here is a couple and more on my Facebook page (Sean Breadsell – Street Photographer)

on the leftFor whatever reason I decided to frame this guy on the very left as I enjoyed the architecture around him, contrasting shapes and textures. What was he doing, just reading a menu, not much point for lunch as the place was closed but perhaps he was going back in the evening but whatever it was he made a good moment in time to capture.  Oh yeah, and I shot this on a shiny new Fujifilm X100F.

a dog's life

Whenever you get doggies in the city, the peoples will come.  Not sure if it is because dog’s are rarely in the city or if it is just that Aussies love their dogs, probably a mixture of both.  Stuff me, that Saint Bernard was huge…I want one of course, to go with my two Goldies.

once_were_warriors

It’s not every day you see these amazing drummers, they were doing a demo in the city for an up coming tour and no not just this one guy, there was LOTS in the group.  They were like a fierce fighting group, like warriors and what happens when you look around the crowds in these situations….BAM…there it was there, Once Were Warriors!!

 

Over the last week or so I was shooting a roll of Kodak Portra 160 in my Olympus Trip 35, which I have had for over a year without trying it out. Such a fun camera to use and dead simple, any idiot like myself can use it….hey what, who said that!

Generally my film ventures are mixtures of street photography, streetscapes and other totally random stuff.  I must say that every single frame from this roll I was happy with, except maybe the frame when the girl walked in front of the awesome Targa West beast of a car.  I can see myself shooting more and more film in the future, watch this space…
