These Streets #2

Sinem In The House

See  policyofsubster

The Original ....


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

One moment in time, just one single split of a second snatched of someone's life, as the eye opens and shuts and the shutter clicks and the car whizzes past... A man in the middle of a sea of pedestrians crowding an Oxford Street sidewalk, a man standing tall, alone, separate.

What is runnig through his mind as he stands still and stands tall, feet firmly on the ground, a look of pride on his face, half a smile and a dreamy gaze into the distant land of memories?

If this photograph could speak, if these streets could speak, what is the story of this lone pedestrian they would tell?

Words and photography by Sinem

Sin, I try not to over enthuise if that's spelt correctley but the highest complement I can ever give anyone is this, If this was for sale I'd buy it. If you go to process this again don't. Images like this sell very well in New York just ask Nicole. ok maybe soften it a little.
First I love the Paolo Nutini words! Great stuff!
Then you surprise me with a fantastic street shot!
Congrats !
I go on vacation in a few days. I wish both of you a Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year.
See you in January! Have fun!

I find these street shots fascinating. Unfortunately I can't pull up the original, but the end result is great. The man in the foreground seems to come from a different culture than the other people in the shot and the reflection in the glass provides additional contrasts. This is a photo that stays interesting for a long time.

Very nice. Well-taken shot. I like the crookedness.

Ah Sinem, that Suby has you to improve his pictures for him - i wonder if he rally knows how lucky he is.

What the lonely man is thinking? In the original "I must not forget to pick up bread, otherwise I will get it from wifey" and in the tuned version he is composing a new jazz hit in his mind.

Lovely blog to visit

Everyone we see has a story and you have captured much more than just the gentleman's outwardly appearance with this shot.

bare neccessities... bravo
Wow man, i must send you my images for pp smile
sublime!...
good capture! like the low pov
Great ad for Mr Branson, Sinem!! Whilst the image of the chap in the foreground is indeed, very powerful, it is the guy in the b/g that really fascinates me, he really does look like he is in a world of his own. I love the angle of the shot and the sepia conversion. Very well processed. Many regards, Neil.
Hi Suby, pvt comment. Please check my comment on this Arsidrajesh character's blog and if you agree, please ask Jide to do something about it, that guy, quite frankly (excuse the language) is taking the piss. Thanks and regards, Neil.

love the shot and the thought behind it,
i think it would have worked better in simple B&W,but thats just me...
