Street Photography and me -2

The ongoing #10yearschallenge inspired me to revisit old photos from my digicam phase. I honestly miss my old compact camera when it comes to photographing on the streets. It’s size would make me invisible in the crowd as opposed to the DSLR which now attracts so much attention.

Anyway! Enjoy this nostalgic ride. The photos may not be top notch with respect to resolution or composition… But they have a very special place in my heart. These photos remind me of my love for street photography which has taken a backseat in the last few years. Whether to blame it on the size of camera or the sheer laziness gained with age or anything else… One thing is sure- I have to hit back the streets with a camera real soon.

All of these photos share a common sentiment. The brutality of time.

  6. Your narrative short sells the composition. I love these.

  7. Marvelous captures! You should get back to street photography soonest!

  8. I still use compact zoom despite having the big one! Most of the pictures I share are from this one. I feel these are simply tools for our hobby. DSLR allows one to go creative and have more control, that’s it. The advantage with a compact camera is that I don’t end up clicking large image sizes which will eat memory when my intention is only to share it with the world.

  9. These are beautiful! I agree with you, the easier life gets, the more complacent we become.
