Talking and gesticulating

 on 


Often when I see older people they are quiet almost subdued. The two gentlemen in the photograph were anything but quiet and subdued. They discussed something passionately as they were walking along George Street. When I saw fist in the air from one of them I knew this was the point for one of my street photographs. It just happened the “Energy Australia” sign was in the background, somehow adding strength to the air punch.

    Intentional or not Ted, your subjects suggest politics….works well in the picture, the fist being the gesture. My reasoning is that I often listen to wise ones, such as your much older persons that have seen enough in life to have a the right of say, sadly the young ones today are blind. You must tell me why you choose B @ W…..do you stare at the picture in colour for sometime to determine the contrast and then do a post production or is it just outright?
