Harvey Stein – street photography

Tonight, I went to an opening of some street photography by Harvey Stein.  He had an amazing eye for people, and the show is at the Robert Anderson gallery in Cherry Creek.

I had a chance to ask him, if it was getting any easier in the modern day, and he mentioned it was a little more difficult, since many people now want to know what the pictures will be used for. I should have guessed in the days of Facebook, more people are concerned about how a stranger will use their image.

He had some books of his images, but had printed some prints of the gallery. The silver prints just looked stunning in comparison to the images in the book. I would have been happy with the images in the book, if I hadn’t seen the prints.

His work was inspiring, so I did a little street photography myself. I was more interested in the architecture.

These photos were done with my Fuji X100T, which has a much more retro user interface. These are jpegs out of the camera in the film emulation mode.

My father always was interested in maps, so if he was still alive I could see him in this shoppe. Come to think of it, I might find it worth while to explore it as well.

Sunset at the Denver Botanic Gardens

Tonight I went to the Denver Botanic Gardens, and saw this flower.

Since I had never seen one of the petals curled like that, it interested me. And it was late enough in the evening that the light was just gorgeous.

Georgetown Loop

Last week my sister and I made it up to the Georgetown Loop for a train ride in the mountains.  They’ve changed their rolling stock since I was last up there.  Here’s a picture I took with my little micro 4/3rds camera.

I experimented a bit with Tonality Pro for this shot. I’ll post more shots as I get more familiar with it.
