Slip Away, 2013
Excellent captured, Richard… 🙂
Thank you very much, Drake 🙂
Oh, more narrow places and unknown people… I find the body language of each figure sort of fascinating. It makes you wonder what has just transpired, who might know one another…
Yes, I’m a sucker for an alleyway. This is another location I’ve been trying to shoot for an age – it took the right people in the right positions to make it – yes, I was into their body language too – and what it meant for the narrative.
could be from a movie…
Thanks very much, Olive.
Love the light!
Yes, there have been some lucky moments in recent weeks. Thanks, Chris!
You force luck to happen 🙂
Love the light into the lens
Ha, ha, yes, I’m not fussy about that kind of thing.
Lol I left a double reply
It is nice how they are walking into the light!
Yes, uncharacteristically upbeat for me 🙂
It’s almost like a scene from the past
Yes, I thought so too. Thanks, Alison. That little side-road has that atmosphere – I’ve been trying to capture that feeling for a long time. It just needed the right people.
Love the figures standing and moving, great atmosphere.
Thanks so much. Yes, it was one of those moments where the people were in just the right positions and I happened to be passing…
Do I recognise this scene from an earlier black and white, Richard?
I really like this. It has a bleakness despite the rich colours.
Ha, yes, it’s entirely possible – I’ve been trying to get this street for ages, so there may have been a previous attempt (I’ll have a trawl back and see). Thanks very much, Ashley. I heart bleakness.
Wet streets are a joy to shoot. The composition and light is brilliant 🙂
Yes, indeed – you get so much more from them. Thanks so much, Arjun! 🙂
This is beautiful Richard! The long and winding road, leading into that wonderful light . . . . . absolutely beautiful!
Thanks very much, Patti! I love that little road – the chef you see in the picture is so sick of me taking his picture he goes inside whenever he sees me now.
That’s so funny!
Great shot, Richard!!! I like very much the composition and use of lines. The detail of the light spot in the upper side of the image is fantastic!!
Thanks so much, Santi! That’s such a nice compliment!
Very nice. I love the way the lines and light work together.
Thanks very much, Chris.
I can almost hear their conversation. Love that turn in the road.
Yes, it’s a location that’s begging to be photographed. Thanks, Elena.
I like the glow of light from the sky that gradually fades and becomes reflections on the damp road. Subtle. Nice.
Thanks very much, EllaDee – I’m really glad you like it. I love that road.
You referred 24 people our way so far today, Richard! Thank you so much… I’ll be posting a piece called “The Obnoxious Sound of Music Upstairs” tomorrow that I’ll be utilizing your staircase photo for. Cheers.
Excellent! You’re most welcome – it’s looking very good – they are a really talented bunch of people. Look forward to seeing my shot in context! All the best!
Brice! I love what you did with The Obnoxious Sound of Music Upstairs – it’s a fantastic piece and the juxtaposition with the photo’s great. More stuff coming soon.
Very cinematic. Shimmering light. Great composition. Also reminds me of Paul Strand. Beautiful image.
Wow, that’s it I’m retiring 🙂 Thanks so much, Terry.
Aha! Is it the people walking out of shot who are slipping away, of the workers on their breaks hiding in the shadows?! 🙂
It’s all of us 😦
I do like this. Tells a bit of a story about people in the city…
I’m really glad you like it, Shimon. I love photographs with a suggestion of narrative.
Have to love the lighting in this one!
Thanks very much! Love your blog!
Very nice with the lights.
Thank you, Cardinal.
Wonderful composition. It draws the viewer in.
BTW lemony Shots sent me here. Great blog. 🙂
Thanks very much! Lemony Shots is brilliant. Love your blog!
Nice shot. Sort of reminiscent of a Victorian street scene painting.
Thanks very much. Yes, I hadn’t thought of that, but yes!
