(Wk 27) Joy is…

Street photography-Fan Ho-2

… Learning!

Our challenge this past weekend, was to try and emulate the style of award-winning photographer, Fan Ho, who is famous for his depiction of the urban life of Hong Kong in the 50s and 60s.

His work is characterized by unusual perspectives, light funnels, long shadows, intersection of architectural lines and light edges, natural framing, etc. (you can read an informative series on his work by blogger MSPAU, here).

Street photography is not my forte (nor interest), so I was really looking forward to practising some shots with shadows and architectural lines… but the clouds played spoilsport… and my “plans” needed to be adjusted.

The results were less than satisfactory :-(, but the learning experience was invaluable :-).

Joy also poured in from multiple fronts this week…take a look!

Lynne captured a playful moment in Varanasi.

Yvette shared some tongue-in-cheek humour from Richmond.

And, Madhu broke a 25-year jinx in Kabini.
