Street Portrait

When you look at a person, any person, remember that everyone has a story. Everyone has gone through something that has changed them. I’ve been watching the show¬†Abstract on Netflix, and just finished the segment on the photographer Platon. All I can say is “WOW.” His work is so incredible. It really reignited my passion for photography. Since I was already in do-over mode, I went back to a street photograph¬†that I posted in 2016. It was the first time, and one of the rare times, that I attempted “candid street photography.” Since the photograph was so unplanned and raw, I wanted to go back to it and focus on the man’s face, add some paint strokes to soften it, and make the portrait seem more up-close & personal. It doesn’t exactly shout Happy Saturday, but “Happy Saturday” nonetheless! Peace & Love— Janet

A Peek Outside

I wanted to test my skills at getting an image through mini-blinds, glass, and the screen. Luckily I was able to move the curtain, or it would have been impossible! Of course, my son had another word for my efforts. He called it spying! Oops.
