Looking for directions


Here is an out of context situation with a young woman on a scooter looking at the painted arrow on the road with a sign “Look Right”. With the scooter’s back end in the air it seems as if she came to a screeching stop in front of that sign looking for directions.

It is just one of these humorous, accidental poses. In reality she is waiting at a pedestrian crossing. She may not even realise how humorous the scene looks from a perspective of an observer.

I’m not sure


Often, when I photograph people I know what the situation is and my comments relate to that situation. However, being real street candids my photographs capture people as they are without any real context. Take this couple for example. They are having an expressive conversation. I have called this photo “I’m not sure” as the gestures seem to indicate a decision and indecision. What do you think they were talking about?
