Black and white Wednesday

I took this picture in the street which is way out of my comfort zone, not brave enough to take faces I took the back of this fellow's head with his hat instead. It's black and white Wednesday over at the long road to China, do have a look at other entries.

  4. Very cool shot and I love the bokeh too. I have not gotten up the courage to take shots of strangers yet either.

  5. I agree with the masses....great shot, Justine. Love the sunlight on his left side and how the whole thing comes together. You have such a great eye for the great shot.

  6. I don't like street photography myself because I'm not good at it. I don't have enough courage to face unfamiliar people. Your photo is like me it reminds how I sometimes feel myself as outsider. The man is watching the people which are totally blur so it gives the feeling of he is the outsider.
    Like the photo much:)

  7. I love this shot. :)

    I love street photography. I used to be a lot braver, though. I once snapped a photo of a man sharpening knives (for a living) and he gave me a glare and I quickly went away. I deleted the photo in the end even though it turned out really well. I figured if he didn't want me to take it, I shouldn't use it.

  9. You are stepping out of your comfort zone -- good for you! The shot is great -- esp. in B&W! I'm hoping to do some street photography today for our class.

  13. Fantastic photo as always....... I'm with you on taking photos of faces in public, a bit too confronting. What would you do if this fellow had heard the camera click and turned around ?

  17. Brilliant, Justine!
    I know how you feel about face on photography of strangers, it terrifies me!

  18. My style also Justine!!
    Just cannot get brave enough to ask someone for a photograph.
    Don't have to ask my flowers, as they always are willing to pose! :-)
    I like this one!!

  19. I am starting to realize that if there is quite a bit of white, it tends to lend itself to b&w. I love your challenges, repetition, partial... I am looking at my compositions in a whole new light. Now I just need to learn Photoshop!

  20. Me too - I have difficulty with pointing my camera at a stranger. But - what a wonderful capture and effect. All the more so in b&w!

  21. I love the bokeh. This shot is intriguing because we can't see his face!
