Mobile Photography – StreetWise Showcase – September 2016

Share

“There is a creative fraction of a second when you are taking a picture. Your eye must see a composition or an expression that life itself offers you, and you must know with intuition when to click the camera. That is the moment the photographer is creative. Oop! The Moment! Once you miss it, it is gone forever.” Henri Cartier-Bresson

It is incredibly inspiring to view all of the photos submitted to our StreetWise Flickr group from around the world – from stunning night scenes, to dramatic black and whites, to captures filled with color, to photos that touch the heart. Thank you so much for participating and inspiring us with your images. Welcome, also, to those newer to our street photography community – it is great to have you join us!

As always, it was difficult for us to choose only a relatively few images from all those that were submitted.

As a reminder, we choose images for the showcase that are in keeping with our group’s intention and guidelines  “We believe that it is important to focus on the key aspects of street photography  composition, timing, juxtaposition, catching the decisive moment  rather than relying on too much aping. We therefore feel that aping should be kept to a minimum  cropping, tweaking exposure, colour, adding a grain or texture is ok but we would like to see you steer away from overly app’ed images that are more art oriented or painterly.”

We hope you will enjoy this inspiring showcase as much as Ilana and I enjoyed putting it together!

A special thank you to Joanne.

Human happiness as many writers will tell you is a mix of the rough and the smooth, the aches and the pains as well as the joys of life. Happiness is neither the journey nor the destination, it is simply something we achieve more often than not when when we travel the right way. The images that you will be drawn to and the music that flows through this weeks mobile photography and art Flickr Group showcase have a sense of quiet wisdom all of their own. It represents a marvellous synthesis of good sense and talent. Enjoy!

As I crashed spectacularly to the ground from my mountain bike early this morning, I was reminded of a dear friend talking to me about resilience. Not that I need reminding, I have met with enough adversity in my life to know that this is a psychological trait buried deeply into my psyche. There was nothing to do, I picked myself back up, swung my leg over the cross-bar, dropped a few gears and I pushed myself up the climb, I stood over my bike and I powered up that hill. The word ‘resilience’ derives from the Latin for ‘to jump again’.  Mobile Photography and Art requires resilience, there is no shortcut to sustainability and to sustain it, is a difficult task. You all pull it off, with your incredible talent, boundless enthusiasm and inventiveness. Ultimately, it is not just about individuals, it is about all of us, as one, we all affect one another, as we regulate our emotions, fulfilment is what keeps us coming back. Enjoy!
