I have more photographs from Istanbul, but I’ve been busy and not really found the time to upload them. Alas these are my last from the place. On to something new… I still need to get my retouching portfolio / website sorted out. Can I have some more hours in my day pretty please? E-mailing a low-res selection to people doesn’t really ‘get me out there’.
Regarding purely creative pursuits: If I don’t find the time now at just gone ‘today not tomorrow’ then I won’t. We have to find time for what makes us happy - to cultivate creativity, because If we don’t our interests and passions may fall by the way side. Then life might seem full of routine, somewhat dull and uninteresting with no ‘punctum’ to open us up to new experience, inspiration, people and conversations.
So without further a-do… here’s the rest. Enjoy.
Manchester. Oldham Street. A place called ‘Fridays’. A dive, a place that is always dark. That has door security most week day afternoons. This guy was stood outside and caught my eye. He let me take his photograph. Some people find it flattering. They may not have any one else interested in them enough to record their presence here anymore.
I thought I'd been transported to the eighties.
To blog is to give to others, a little something of yourself. To affect just one person with what you do is amazing. So in that thread I will continue and offer something, but not of myself. Not today when inspiration and foreign soil are lacking. Instead, I want to give you a fellow street photographer by the name of Joe E.
As a street photographer Joe Entwistle has visited many cities around Europe to capture moments which would otherwise have been lost. The primary focus of his work is to capture people from various walks of life in everyday scenes.
Here a few of my personal favourites, because they are just lovely.
To take a look at more of Joe’s work visit.
