Woman in Door


No, she wasn't observing me. She was impatiently waiting for someone. Impatiently without moving even a bit.

Is it easy to photograph at night in foreign streets without having any kind of troubles with the local residents? How do you describe your experience when you feel that a camera maybe not welcome?

Great shot, Oliver. Love the post work, too. Obviously, you dragged the shutter on this one. I'm curious, what created the motion blur on the upper left of the frame?

My experience in Cuba was that most people didn't care about privacy too much. However, I tried to be not intrusive. I had an English speaking local accompanying me. I asked for his opinion before most moves. Usually when someone approached us then because they wanted to sell cigars to me.

I was wondering about this too, Scott. It must have been the lights of a passing vehicle.

That is very interesting thanks for sharing, I guess it depends of the local, if touristic or not, and with whom we are.

Oliver said...

Let me know if you think of traveling there. I can give you much more information.

Very cool, I like how the old car is the obvious subject, but then the eye notices the old woman in the doorway. If I ever go, I will probably end up shooting 32 gigabytes of rusty classic cars and nothing else!

I like those moments. You take a picture of something and then someone pops up adding so much to the picture that you just hold your breath and hope it will last for more than just a split second.

I really like the picture - I have been a fan of yours for awhile. It reminds me of a grandmother looking for her kids because the streetlights are on. LOL

These are kind words - thanks for stepping out of anonymity then ;)
