In Pursuit of Magic: Another Photo Dump…

I did a ton of shooting last weekend and wanted to share the fruits of my labor.

Some ‘experts’ say you should only show your best stuff, but I’m not sure I believe in that concept, because I see my street photography work as a stream of consciousness-type flow of the things that catch my eye. I’m not looking to display some type of technical excellence or put forth some perfectly-edited photo essay on a particular topic. I just want to show people what I saw!

Everything here was shot with a Canon 5D with a 50mm lens.

From a stylistic standpoint, I find myself increasingly interested in architecture and subject matter that is about form and texture, especially in black & white.

It’s probably a result of spending time looking at the work of black & white masters like Minor White, Paul Caponigro, and Julius Shulman. For some reason, I love working with 5D images in black & white – they just look plain better to me.

So here we go…
