Black and white



Over the winter I started a street photography project. Inspired by a William Klein exhibition in the Tate Modern, I have worked in pedestrianised areas around London, freezing the moment without giving it too much thought. I noticed that I became drawn to the anonymity of people passing by at a distance, almost blending into the landscape, forming a pattern within the urban landscape.

Can't decide which one I like the best. They all have balance and a nice center of interest. I'd continue with this project. It has a lot of promise.

I agree with Richard. Very interesting. I also like the photos of London you showed on previous posts.

I enjoyed reading your description of the people in your picture making patterns. They do, indeed, create thered own patterns against the buildings and trees.

I think I like the middle one best ... movement of people with the live-statue frozen in time ... albeit briefly.

Fabulous Angelika. I love your street photography project. I find the anonymity of people passing at a distance very interesting too (as a writer, I start wondering about their lives). B/W works so well with this theme. You really have an excellent eye!

I think the third one works best for me, but they're lovely. Particularly in black and white. Gives it a frozen in time sort of feel.
