Whatever you are busying with, don't overwork yourselves and do take a break, especially true if you're on high!

Knock on the Margin

The composition of today's shot defies the normal wisdom of placing the primary subject on the right to make way for the viewer's gaze flowing from right to left. The man seems going to knock his head on the margin of the frame, which is sort of an entertaining thought to me. What is captivating about street photography is that the moment usually comes up too fast for composing properly and the final images are sometimes unexpectedly fun or revealing in one way or the other.

Counting 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9…

By a bit of perseverance,  I have been maintaining this blog for nearly 5 years even though leisure is now too much of a luxury idea for me.  I would otherwise have done more camera field tests.  But anyway I am truly satisfied with this tiny space for sharing images in a total of over 1700 posts so far.  The GRD4 acquired weeks ago has been filling my days with gladness, reaping many keepers pleasing to my eye.  I am yet to really explore its capabilities.  How much more joyful I would be with a GR, I wonder.  But its slow lens is a deal breaker to me.  After all, the GRD4 is doing what I need for shooting in the street.  I just leave the duties befitting the GR to my Leica X1 which I use mainly for recording the daily life of my family.  The X1 has been doing an absolutely fantastic job. 

Let me take the chance to say thanks to you, readers.  Thank you for dropping by.
