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.
