…this was taken in July last year!
I was meeting a friend for a short walk around Canary Wharf (a very photogenic, but rarely visited area), not expecting to capture much, and shot this:
Don’t know how I missed it! His laces, watch and glasses almost match the foliage – and it brings some of the ‘newness’ and unspoiled elements that this relatively new part of London has into frame too. I really like it.
Almost a year later, and for reasons unbeknownst to me, I gave this folder another ‘pass’ just to see if I missed anything from what I now only recall as a fairly uneventful walk last summer. Clearly, I did.
And another image – not a face – but something that caught my attention:
Sometimes it pays for us go back a ways to see what we could’ve missed. If you’re like me, and want to edit (and post) the MOMENT you get home from a shoot, I can pretty much guarantee there’s a nugget or two that you’ve overlooked… I’m going to do this sort of ‘backchecking’ more often.
These two images were shot on the Fujifilm X-E2 + Fujinon XF 56mm F1.2 APD. An unusual combo for street style, but one I may well go back to more often.
Thanks for reading!
