  1. Ann, Rags, Alan, Thanks for the comments. Robert
  2. This was taken in 2005 at the dunes, in Death Valley California. While my Photobuds immersed themselves in documenting the beauty of Nature's Splendor, to retain my sanity and keep from pushing sharp sticks into my eyes, I spent the six days taking pictures of them taking pictures. This is my bud Andrew, the Skiing Dentist, and a mean sports photographer, who spends a lot of time shooting his Daughter's World Cup Slalom ski races. motorized Nikon F2AS zoom-Nikkor 80~200 2.8 ED AIS manual focus Ektachrome 100 ISO colour slide probably 2.8 @ 1/125th
  3. This was taken about fifteen years ago on one of our Excellent Adventures in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. We were walking through a shallow swamp at sunrise trying to photograph Damsel Flies while they were still inactive from the cold. I liked the way our friend Simone looked in the early morning light, and grabbed this shot. motorized Nikon FA zoom-Nikkor 80~200 2.8 ED AIS manual focus Ektachrome 100 ISO colour slide 2.8 @ 1/250th
  4. Not much. Nikkor 200 f4 micro AIS + Minolta Flashmeter III + a projector bulb-$70.00 PC-Nikkor 35 f3.5 lens-$100.00 Nikon FG body-$40.00 Really, there isn't much more equipment I want or more important need. Robert
  5. Taken on Queen Street West here in Toronto. I was walking along when I came upon a young girl cleaning the glass patio panel in front of a restaurant. Using a wide lens and a slow shutter speed, I grabbed this shot. Converted to black and white in Photoshop motorized Nikon FG Nikkor 24 f2 AIS manual focus Fuji Velvia 100 ISO colour slide f11 @ 1/30th
  6. Chris / Rags, Thank you both. As a story-telling picture, I am very pleased with this shot. Robert
  7. Thanks Chris. With street photography it is all about timing. Robert
  8. Luc, Thank you for your kind comments. Robert
  9. Thanks Luc. I appreciate the kind comments. Leisurely contemplation just doesn't work for PJ and street photography. You've got to be on your guard all the time. I've been doing this long enough that the state of high alert just becomes natural when I'm out shooting. Robert
  10. Alan, Thank you for your very kind comments. As I've said before, my photographic mission is to tell human stories with pictures, and so, if a shot I've taken evokes a viewer's emotion, then I feel I've accomplished my purpose. Robert
  11. While in New Orleans, I'd get up every morning about six am and get out by myself on the street to catch any interesting subjects. I'd see many of the same folks every day always guarding their particular patch of turf, including a man in a wheelchair who slept in it on the sidewalk near a convenience store. On one particular morning, I found him asleep with his hands and face all pulled under his hoodie, as if he was shutting out the horrors of his day-to-day reality.

  12. Thanks Armando, That interaction between mother and child makes the shot. Difficult light? Nah. They were in open shade so I went 5.6 @ 1/125th and let the out of focus background burn out however it would. No time to screw around. See it. Grab it. Or it's gone forever. Robert
  13. Taken a few weeks ago in Kensington Market, here in Toronto. On the prowl for interesting subjects and situations I noticed a city worker wearing a Superman tee-shirt standing across the street. It occurred that in today's economic climate even Superheros might find it necessary to take second jobs to make ends meet, and the scene made me smile. So I grabbed this shot. motorized Nikon FA Tokina ATX 80~200 2.8 AIS manual focus Fuji Velvia 100 ISO colour slide 5.6 @ 1/1000th
  14. Another picture from the corner of Royal and St. Peter Streets in the French Quarter District of New Orleans. As I watched for opportunities to get interesting shots of the two street musicians, I noticed their child looking at me while her mother swayed and played, and I grabbed this shot.

  15. This was taken a few weeks ago in New Orleans, in the French Quarter. My wife and I were walking through the Quarter when at an intersection we came upon a duet of extraordinarily talented musicians playing violins. Obviously a couple, the woman carried their child on her back as she played, and the baby who seemed used to the life appeared to be very contented. At one point, the mother glanced back at the baby, and I grabbed this shot. motorized Nikon FA Tamron SP 35~105 2.8 AIS manual focus Fuji 100 ISO colour slide 5.6 @ 1/125th
