Street Photography – Cardiff Streets 6

Another entry in the ongoing saga of my Olympus OM-1, a roll of Fomapan Classic 100 and a lot of boot leather being worn out on the streets. All below taken with a 50mm F.Zuiko Auto-S 1.8 lens.Suit and Shoes 50mm Fomapan Classic 100 f11 125th sec Remember smoking doesn’t make you look cool kids, especially those ridiculous E-Cigarette’s.

Street Photography – Cardiff Streets 4

Making a return to street photography on film today with another instalment in this series, armed with the trusty Olympus OM-1 and a roll of Fomapan Classic 100, all of these were taken with either a 50mm or 28mm lens.

First up is this shot of a girl, sat alone, headphone on, rolling a cigarette.

The repetitive lines of the glass windows, each a slightly different texture and contrast of grey. The roof of the building rising in a diagonal arc to the point where the sunlight catches it with a shining crescendo. This is one of my favourite photo’s I have taken, I’m not big on architectural photography but having seen plenty of examples I’d say maybe, MAYBE, this is an ok one itself. (more…)
