Street Photography: ‘Stare. It is the way to educate your eye, and more. Stare, pry, listen eavesdrop. Die knowing something. You are not here long. Walker Evans

Photography is not about the thing photographed. It is about how that thing looks photographed. Garry Winogrand

Sheffield centre: Cathedral and near by...
Some observation and shoots of ordinary-every-day-things can reveal the actual beauty and meaning of those tiny moments... Different actions and thoughts under the rain cover, some waterproof equipment or even a label provide a private shield by drawing a broader border line around the peoples' comfort zone... They try to hide the natural things and thoughts in order to suppress their human nature of social activity... They have been taught that revealing thoughts and emotions is impolite and create an image of sensitivity that makes people seem helpless... They fight to suppress their gestures and body language but hopefully they can't... The bad weather conditions and the common shelter provoke the social instincts to generate communication without the modern social conventions and rituals! A melancholic observation and some gloomy colours brought me closer to people that I love...
