Street Pride

pride 2013

If you want to live a happy and fulfilling life focus on the best in people and in yourself. Sometimes the same rule goes for street photography:)

There are a few images from Dublin Pride 2013 (unfortunately I didn’t make it to Dublin this year). The images were taken after the parade was over.

Gardai look tired. It was a busy day.

I liked that hat, it is why I asked them for a picture:)

This lovely dog came to Dublin from Brazil.

Coachman and his son are amused by the fluffy Brazilian:)

I have got many images of this lovely old lady. I like this one for a reason: follow her eyes, they are staring right at the bare chest of that hot Brazilian fella in the right corner:)

This sweet couple enjoyed themselves, especially the gentleman: He was chatting with everyone in his reach ( I put a picture of them in my previous  blog post)

Some people were rushing through the crowd as fast as they could. Locals want to get home, they are tired of the crowded streets.

Late evening. This texting street performer is too tired of real people. With no one around it is nice to share a quiet company, at last.

Hope you like this evening in Dublin. Click on the images to enlarge them a little: they are all reasonable size images. I didn’t  post pictures from the parade:  people’s faces tell more stories than their fancy dresses ( except that cute yellow hat :)…).  But my next post… It is about something very special, and plenty of elaborated garments too 😉 Talk to you Friday!

Photography tip of the day: Black&white images focus on the story with no distractions. Great for portraiture, architectural details, lines, shapes, textures, light/shadows, mismatched colors in your composition, and for improving bland uninteresting images you still want to keep.

inesemjphotographyHave a great week!

  1. Each photograph could tell a story. You could split these up and make lots of stories! I am amazed at the black and white ones and focus more on their faces. You are an excellent photographer.

    1. Thank you so much for stopping by! To be honest, the images are not even taken in raw. It was the day when my old NikonD90 first gave up… I didn’t notice that camera somehow switched from raw to basic, and I just kept shooting. Only at home, staring in horror at the downloaded jpegs I realised what had happened. I am still using D90 for streets, because it is light.

      1. THX in return…so many nice and informative lines, tested some newer NIKON esp. D7100 + higher, excellent lenses and technics but really heavy…so I bought lightweight OM-D…have a good weekend 😉

  2. Your photos are phenomenal! You really capture the heart and spul of these people. I can look at them and try and figure out their stories from a smile or gleam in their eye. That’s usually hard to capture, but you obviously have talent. I can’t wait to see more!

    1. Thank you so much for your kind comment! When people are interested in each other existence, they realise that everybody has a story. I am very grateful that you are touched by these photographs. You have the most important gifts: you are not judgemental and love your neighbor.

    1. Thank you so much for understanding. They are human beings and it is all that matters. When I posted the pictures on Facebook last year, I wrote something like “Remember these faces; you might meet with some of them in heaven after we all die” 🙂

  3. Simple people having fun. There’s the beauty of the world, the most difficult to appreciate, sometimes.
