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

There are days on these streets when you need to stop for a moment and take a deep breath, standing apart amidst the whizzing crowd. There are days like these on these streets, grey, gloomy, endless dreary, so much like one another to tell them apart.

There aremoments when the city gets a little too crazy.

Just stop...

Ignore the mad rush of the follow commuters, lean on a lamp post, for as long as it takes, to refresh, to revitalise, to recuperate...

Take your time, take it in at your own pace, laugh out loud in the face of the sign that says 'No stopping at anytime'. Stop and enjoy the scenery of 'these streets with too many names', as Paolo says, and too many tube stations.

Then begin again, at your own pace...

Anyone looking for the services of Suby as a Photographer, you know what to do..... (email me in case some are wondering what. LOL)

I like what you've done here Sinem: The B&W conversion and the motion blur are very effective. You've left the colouring in the 'red route' sign, but you know I'm thinking that it may *perhaps* bring out the meaning more if you chopped the top off to halfway down the sign. You'd lose the 'STATI' which is a little distracting, but we'd then be concentrating on the 'no stopping' bit, which is just above the guy's head.

Not one of your best Sin for me, I like the lonely guy bit and the underground side but... the words match really but something is missing. It's been a pleasure looking at your work but his one is missing something, just don't know what it is.
really nice movement Suby, so the contrast
This is excellent work!

Naw i can't see what johnny doesn't like. I think it is a great blog (picture and words).

He is ignoring the no-stopping, but is standing in the red route ... makes me wonder. I heard in A'dam they have signs indicating where you are allowed to stand and puff your joint smile

This is another well-spotted moment. I like how he's able to take the time out of the day to just hang out and chill for a bit.

Nice shot Sinem. I like the words and how the picture makes you stop to think as well.

It's a great image. I really feel the isolation between the calm main subject and the busy world that surrounds him. top shot. Mal
cool subject, good motion, nice selective desaturation...
im getting repetitive but supebly done again...

a moment of peace in a rushing world ... look, you can even get some quiet by leaning against a lamp post. (I've lost the plot today!)
Diaphanous, clear, fixed. Samples which you want to show and of the form that you want to do it. In addition, in case anybody has not realized, cause that we watch the colored signal of traffic so that we know that these speaking. Simply it seems to me BRILLIANT, You are a teacher.
Nice how you "freezed" this man in the middle of the action!
