My first love is b&w. I like street photography so here are a few. This one is this February in Roseau, Dominicaā€¦


#82

Also Feb this yearā€¦Racehorses at Carlisle Bay, Barbadosā€¦


#83

November 2015ā€¦Winchesterā€¦

Why, when the ā€œconstrain proportionsā€ box is ticked by default when sizing the pictures to fit the page, does the software always fail to ā€œconstrain proportionsā€ and screw up your pictures? :lou_facepalm_2:


#85

Nice work guys, wish I could do street togging. The horse pic is magnificent mate


#86

The racehorse scene is apparently a daily event. I was settling down on a sunlounger when along came 5 groms each with a beautiful horse. They walked straight into the sea. One pairing swam about 200 yards outā€¦all looked untroubled by it.


#87

Stayed at Carlisle bay the other year, donā€™t remember the horses but do remember discovering the red light district behind the racehorse track when getting off the bus at the wrong stop.


#88

So having been reminded of Barbados. This was the best thing we did out there. Photos are from a very cheap underwater camera. I had no idea how the photos would turn out as I couldnā€™t see the screen. My next purchase will be a better underwater camera - advice welcome.

Missed out on spotting a turtle in Mauritius. Annoyingly my partner did see one.


#89

Another of the sea-horsesā€¦the woman in the picture I found out later comes from Southamptonā€¦


#90

Walking the dog can be dangerous in these partsā€¦


#91

BTW Nikiā€¦love the turtle pictures. You did very well without a viewfinder. :lou_surprised:


#92

A few more nature ones - Lucky enough to go to Kenya a few years ago - lifelong ambition

Thanks. Itā€™s tricky as I cannot really see with a snorkel mask as my vision is blurred without glasses, combined with a shit camera. I think itā€™s a miracle I got any! Point and shoot.


#94

Love the turtle pics - closest I get is taking shots in my marine tank

Labouti Wrasse

Magnificent Tailspot blenny

Moody Clown


#95

I think youā€™ve found Nemo. :lou_surprised:

Heard my first Cuckoo of spring walking the dog this morningā€¦no pictures of it though.


#96

Stunning birds. Only time I saw one last year I didnā€™t have my camera. Gutted


#97

Donā€™t really do birdsā€¦had a long lens once but never used itā€¦as I say Iā€™m a street and landscape man.

This is as close to wildlife as I getā€¦still ā€œstreetā€ photography really :lou_wink_2:


#98

I took this photo of Swanage bay a while ago

It uploaded to google photos which ā€œauto awesomedā€ it, I think the auto awesome is nicer


#99

I was looking back thought this topic last night, before sleep. Impressive. You guys have been to some amazing places (and captured some beautiful images of them).

Goatboy ā€“ is there anywhere beautiful and exotic that you havenā€™t been? :lou_surprised:

+1. This is so annoying.

This is a most excellent high-res black and white still, lifeintheslowlane. The detail is superb. Like youā€™ve captured a little piece of time, standing still, and now forever on hold.

November 2015 you say ā€“ but it looks like itā€™s from another time, another era.

Thanks Jack, Iā€™m pleased you like it because of all the pictures I took in 2015, (and there are hundreds) it happens to be my favourite too. Iā€™m a desciple of the master of street photography, Henri Cartier-Bresson but only fit to shine his shoes. I always have in mind his tenet on street photographyā€¦every scene has its decisive moment. Use your instinct to identify it and capture it.

Most of the time I miss but occasionally it gells. :lou_smiley:
