“I am certain of nothing but the holiness of the heart's affections, and the truth of imagination.” John Keats

It’s rare these days that I post candid portraits of random people looking into my lens as I’ve learned that it rarely has much significance to capturing the human condition as opposed to just simply, the human ...being. While people are indeed interesting creatures that do interesting things, what is a sharable moment in this photo is not so much the light, the subject, or the environment but rather the fleeting moment in which this combination can all occur. As seen in the clip in the next slide, which was supposed to be for my next video about “no flash corners" (who knows, if I’ll ever get around to that) there’s not much thought that was put into the shot but rather instinctual muscle memory if you will. It’s a classic example of getting something out of what you put into it, as this shot isn’t anything particularly noteworthy; it’s a simple scene of a woman, lit from two reflective light sources, holding her phone. Not exciting stuff. These types of images don’t usually constitute a great shot but the aesthetics alone could be enough for some to be deemed as successful. I however wouldn’t be fooled by the superficial qualities of an image nor would I subject you to accept this other than what it is for face value so my unwarranted advice, if so chosen to be accepted would be to be mindful of how content and the context of an image is far more important than the style in which its presented. This is about the time that the old NBC “The More You Know” banner and jingle would play. _ #wearegrryo #streets_storytelling #capturestreets #best_streetview #pocket_streetlife #ultimate_streets #lensculturestreets #streetselect #cobblescope #ourstreets #challengerstreets #fromstreetswithlove #lensonstreets #friendsinperson #apfmagazine #streetphotocargo #jj_streetshots #instagramhub #instamagazine_ #streetscenesmag #instagood #watchthisinstagood #urbanromantix #serikat_sp #blogto #royalsnappingartists #streetshared #thecanadiancollective #myfeatureshoot #thisismystreet

Symbolism : One thing I attempted to photograph at Pride this time around was subtle symbolism; subtlety isn't exactly quite how Pride presents itself! This was my first shot of the day. This lady walked past this location as I approached, and I liked the idea of potentially combining the elements. It was then she told me ... she came from a traditional Christian family background, and a few weeks earlier revealed how her teenage son had come out to them ahead of Pride. Unbeknown to him, her and her husband were coming down to surprise him with their presence ... and unconditional acceptance. - It was Pride last weekend in my home town of Bristol. Now in its seventh year, it drew an impressive parade in excess of 10,000 revellers of varying hues, ethnicities and cultural backgrounds all drawn in with a kaleidoscopic burst of joy, energy and togetherness. - It's a beautiful event to photograph - the colour is often insanely vibrant [a quick look around my stream will soon reveal that's not my natural inclination!] - but not wholly easy to photograph in a subtle street photography style, as the willingness for seemingly one and all to collectively hurl themselves, all bright and smiley, in front of the lens makes for an experience like that of being on a ghost train that's been combined with an explosion in a fireworks factory, all set to pulsing samba rhythms. - After this particular, erm, outing as a photographer, I subsequently needed a lie down in a darkened, ummm, closet. Phew! - Note: I got so many decent shots of the parade, I may bulk process them and put them all up on a dedicated IG profile. Watch this space ...
