it has been years since my prior visit, but I have to say that the sadness and poverty in so much more prominent today on the streets of Las Vegas. Also the ways various people are trying to make a living. I am posting these just to remind me and us that there is always the other side to glamour. I am not so used to seeing it. so it made me very sad.
If you travel to Las Vegas downtown is a must see, but I have to admit it is not my favorite place in Las Vegas. It is too loud, crowded for my taste. Different music surrounding you from every direction, the total cacophony of sounds. People just everywhere. But the lights are something different, not something you see at home that’s for sure. Though during the dark months they surely would considered as light treatment to the people who walk in in the darkness for several months.
This week on CB&W the the topic is back of things. Here is my take on the topic
Lazy, or something else, Haven’t been editing my Australia photos as quickly as I would have liked to. Have not even touched the ones I took in Hong Kong. I think, no, I know, I have not taken my camera out but only once since January. I think I am slightly depressed as I am not able to create anything new, I plan, I plan again, but then I don’t get anything done. My head is in a mist.
Have you been at this kind of a slump in your photography. You know, why do this, there are so many better, more creative and talented people out there. Who cares. Point being, I have always done this for me, never had any real ambition to be something. Just to share, the world as I see it. Come spring, hopefully, I will get back on the track.
We were greeted in Sydney with this happy dude called Doug and kids of Leo entertaining the crowd by singing. So here are few street photos from George street. I was sitting on a bench as this little kid slept in his dads arms while mom was doing Xmas shopping. The pretty lady across the street just caught my eye.
We took a ride on a river boat on Chapora river in India.
After having slept in a nice cabin, in the morning i woke to find the crew sleeping on the floor.
Selfie time 🙂
Great places to chill…
it is nearly new year and I decided to make a bold move. I changed my theme here on WP – what do you think? My aim was to lessen the clutter and give the spotlight on my photos.
As you know I am not a writer, I don’t have that much to say at least I do not think that too many would be interested in my rambling style of writing. My writing reflects the clutter in my mind, hopping and popping from one thought to an other. So to get a something other than a mind flow kind of text from me here is a challenge. I reserve that to my work. This is for my photos, the way I see the world through my lens.
As a hint of the coming month – I am once again picking a theme. I will be visiting friends in Florida in January, so my photos will be filled with sunshine and sights. I am posting some photos from my previous trip to begin with and when I get there, my uploads will all from my mobile as I an not going to carry my laptop with me – you know I will be on holiday.
I am surviving it’s grey outside, but i have a new hair color so all is good! Is this not one of the most annoying questions, what should I do with my hair? This time I solved it this way. Blonder, shorter. The other question is, what should we make for dinner?
Do you agree with these very important questions or do you have better annoying and hard and more important questions?
Helsinki in November sunlight
The reflection on a train window – not something I get to photograph that often or that it would come to my mind to do so, but it is November. And the sun was shining again today. That is a wow factor for sure!
This week I have picked a street photograph, a coffee moment outside. A man, obviously enjoying a cup of coffee and reading the morning paper. This is my pick for Monochrome Madness this week. The original is included for comparison.
My entry to Monochrome Madness is this photo from Naples Pier in Florida. Great back light outlines the silhouettes clearly.
