Before making this trip a friend pointed me to the website of a New Zealand photographer. I wanted to check out her NZ images. But she also had some excellent street work she had done in Sydney. And I thought "oh yes, I'm also going to a great city! Perhaps some street photography?"
Turns out Sydney is quite a good place for street work!
I recently completed my first book - 99 Street Photography Images. I sent a copy to my friends John Barclay and Dan Sniffin that had encouraged me regarding my street work.
Dan asked for a copy of one particular image, said his wife would like to have it in her Psychology office. It's been here on the blog, my "one night in San Francisco" series. I went to find the image for him and came across this one. This is the actual street poet. I thought this shot was kind of poignant, and wanted to share here on the blog.
A bunch of my friends are in Cuba again right now. So I thought it would be fitting to post a few from my trip there. I have great memories, but at the moment I wouldn't feel like going back. This scene is very common. For most people, there isn't a lot to do, so they watch the street. This image really captures the feel of Havana Vieja (Old Havana).
