Against a Wall

This has been done many times before.

I really like this wall.

There’s texture, brick by brick.

The colour is luminous.

The window is dark enough.

I’m a fly on the wall.

Nice door.

There’s no end to the stream of individuals.

All deep in thought.

Conversing with their individual humanity.

Tranquillity

We all need to walk.

I have done this walk so many times now, that some of these images are lodged in my mind.

We all know how our external environments organize our internal state.

In a crowded shopping mall, we’re all a bit tense.

Look at water and we relax.

We all need a depository of homely images in our mind.

So we feel at home even outside of home.

There’s a story of a family here waiting to be told.

Just a little narrative.

IMG_20140415_0030 640

A little space.

IMG_20140415_0031 640

A scattering of things telling us who we are.

IMG_20140415_0034 640

Just a little window to the world. A little insight.

IMG_20140415_0037 640

A safe harbor.

IMG_20140415_0024 640

And we’re home.

 

 

Looking Out a Bus Window

This is one of those grungy images that jumped out at me. I was on a double-decker bus and he was on an adjacent seat, looking out. I like the urbane, dreamy and defiant attitude. Definitely a Wong Kar-wai Chungking Express moment for me. In fact, the bus went past Chungking Mansions moments before I pulled out my camera.

That Nikon signage was a serendipitous element so crucial to street photography.
