Outside Rosario's bus station, a woman sits at the taxi stand. She won't boast board any, nor will she ride the bikes. Her feet won't carry her very far either. But for now, she will just stare at the flow of passengers coming in and out of the station. Leica M9 with 35mm Summilux Asph at F1.4, ISO160

One has to be the tallest to watch the fastest? I initially processed this picture with my usual colors, but this is one of these cases where I think it works so much better in B&W. So why fight it? Parana River - Leica M8 with 35mm Summicron at F8.0, 1/500, ISO160

... the ambulanceman ran away. No, this ain't no old Swiss saying, just surrealism. (Click on picture for high res) Note that I am experimenting some trouble with the website as a 500 internal server error keeps on popping up. My attempts to solve it resulted in more trouble as I lost some of the designs specs of the site. That is probably a hint that it is time for a new version anyways. Leica M8 with 35mm Summicron IV

Spot the odd ones: filter or no filter ?

The use of filters, HDR, cropping and cloning tools is often debated in street photography. Should the documentary aspect of street photography prohibit any manipulation...
The use of filters, HDR, cropping and cloning tools is often debated in street photography. Should the documentary aspect of street photography prohibit any manipulation made by the photographer in post-processing? There is no simple answer to that and most of the time, viewers can't even distinguish when manipulations are made. For example, could you tell which of the following pictures had a filter applied to it ?  (click on pictures to view them in high res) 1 2 q 3 4 I'll provide the answer in a couple of day in the comments' section.

Italy is our destination this week with exceptionally two Sho(r)t Stories by Andrea Monti of Pescara. Quis custodies - GR Digital III The last Waltz - GR Digital III What is the sho(r)t story? Quis custodies: Well, I was wandering around Rome and, while heading at Monte Citorio (the Italian Parliament) I crossed the square where Palazzo Chigi (the primeministership official headquarter) is located. All of a sudden I was aware of the oddity of the picture: a sentinel, and a police officer watching the watcher. Hence the title of the photo: Quis custodies ipsos custodes? (Who will control the...

The Queen of the track

Car races in Argentina are quite surprising. Not only because most cars that run there have 30 years old engine (Fiat 500, 147, Ford Falcone), but also due to the passion that revolves around it. The presence of a female driver must have triggered quite a few comments in the surrounding teams. I might attend several races over the next few months and was thinking about doing a reportage. You kind of feel transported back to the eighties, but the atmosphere is absolutely great and people of the friendliest kind. As for the Queen of the track, her engine blew...

Though I suppose that most readers of this blog are especially interested by street photography, we all have other interests, be it portrait, landscape or why not, reportage. Let's discover this week what is that discipline you especially enjoy aside from street photography. As always, no registration is required to vote and no personal information is transmitted to this website. I do enjoy to take portraits of strangers when the opportunity arises as in this Cochin shot, waiting for the rain to stop under a blue tarp. As for the previous poll "How do you hunt the streets ?"
