Too Blind To See by Drenton Too Blind To See by Drenton
This photo is copyrighted and may not be used in any way without permission.

Street Performer. First attempt at true street photography, so it's rather bad. Well, I learned that you can still properly play the accordion with one hand, be more stealthy (I was using slow purposeful, clear movements), and be prepared. But I like how the feeling turned out (Yeah, the I don't like the subject pose too much, but other than that).

Shooting information:
Lens Aperture: f/3.5
Focal Length: 18mm
Shutter speed: 1/8 sec

Interesting. Something feels like it draws me in, but I don't know what...

This photo truly conveys humanity and its ever so apathetic nature. The shutter speed, to blur out the human, is perfect. the blur almost demonises the creature, into something fleshless - just a mere shadow, not even going to look at the musician. Such dark colours, with such contrasts, really reflect on how this earth is tainted. This seems like a visual example of the corruption of society. The musican is hiding their face, this shows shamefulness. However, I suppose the one that should be shameful is the person ignoring them, and you have suggested that they dont even deserve a face (or a body). The bricks almost looks like a cage, as the perception of the world, is one big fat ugly cage.

Well done, bleak.

I like that she is hiding her face ... it gives the impression that the blurred presence is about to attack, oh and I love the noise in the shot :love:
