These Streets #1

Sinem In The House

See  policyofsubster

Sinem sat down on Saturday and edited even more of her images that she has snapped over the year, so good news folks, more of Sinem's images, less of Suby's, LOL

Sinem has a habit that drives me to distraction, when I am driving, she whips out the camera and starts taking street shots, distracts me to hell and back as she does it mostly when we are in London where I sooooo dislike driving in, but she does tend to get some lovely awesome images.

All or most of the images posted this week have been taken through the car windshields.

I have also decided to post up the Original images of her shots for this week.

THESE STREETS (THROUGH THE WINDSHIELDS)

'where'd the days go? When all we did was play
And the stress that we were under wasn't stress at all
just a run and a jump into a harmless fall from
walking by a high-rise to a landmark square
you see millions of people with millions of cares
And I struggle to the train to make my way home
I look at the people as they sit there alone.'

Paolo Nutini- These Streets 

London - the metropol of a million different lives, dreams, cares, so many places, so many faces. These streets, high-rise blocks, landmark squares that are the silent witnesses to stomping feet, clicking heels, drunken brawls, quiet whispers; the constant racing, time chasing, street trodding, endless waiting...

This series is a collection of photos taken through the windshield of the old faithful Rover throughout the year 2006 much to the annoyance of the other half. As I see Suby's photography take on new challenges and move in new directions, I've just realised my photography is taking shape and slowly taking off to travel in a completely different direction. As a friendly charmer, Suby's at ease and at his best with portraits and people shots. As a quiet recluse, I do enjoy the anonimity and distance behind the windshield or the solitary silence of wide open spaces.

I have finally discovered what I most like about the art of photography: to get a glimpse in time, to stop the crazy pace of time just for a split second to get a snippet of someone's life, as they are walking by, oblivious to your curious gaze or clicking shutter, or patiently waiting for the bus, shopping at Sloane Square, crossing the road with a friend in tow, tenderly holding on to a baby, or pushing a buggy... From the highrise council estates to sleek office blocks, from the graffiti-laden ghetto walls to glitzy shop windows, these streets have a pace, a heartbeat, a rythym and mst importantly a million stories to tell through strangers' faces in damiliar places. In the next few days, I will try to bring you snippets of those stories, stealing moments from these lives live on these streets... Enjoy the London sightseeing tour!

It is very interesting to see how the dark original turns into this shot that looks much more like a painting than a photograph. I definitely like the end result.
