It’s Personal

This is a repost of an image taken in Washington Square Park, NYC. Due to unforeseen circumstances I haven’t really been out taking images lately.

Street Portrait Chinatown NYC

Black And White Photography, Martha, Photography

One of my favorite things about street photography is the street portrait. This is a man in Chinatown, NY. I approached this man to ask if I could take his picture, only to find out he didn’t speak English. I was attracted to the face that showed so much character.  A smile and a non-verbal indication to the camera that I wanted to photograph him was all I needed. He smiled back and let me spend a few minutes photographing him. This is from that brief interaction on the streets of New York.

A beautiful young woman dressed in vintage clothing strikes a pose before taking a ride on the NYC Holiday Nostalgia Train. Image was taken with a Fujifilm X30 compact camera.

This is a Sunday morning in the East Village, NYC, on St. Mark’s Place, where sitting out on the front stoop is still a common scene.

I was on a crowded subway in NYC and this couple was right next to me. Sometimes the images just present themselves in street photography, and it’s pure luck!
