Looking for the Story

I did a bit of street photography during our recent weekend in Niagara On the Lake, using my Rolleiflex. The best street photography at least hints at an underlying story, and that was my goal with this couple outside one of the theatres. Shot on Ilford HP5 + film.

Another Calgary Bridge

Today’s post is a variation on a theme/follow-up to yesterday’s post: the same city (Calgary), the same rainy day, and another bridge and pedestrian.

Out For a Stroll

Like I said in a previous post, street photography is outside of my comfort zone, but I am working on it. One observation that I and others have made is that if you are shooting with a film camera you get treated with less suspicion by passersby than if you are shooting with a digital camera / smartphone. These images were created with my Rolleiflex and my Hasselblad.

I do like reflections. Both images taken using my Olympus XA 35mm rangefinder camera, on Bergger BRF 400+ film (gifted from my photographer friend Bill Smith)

Here are three more images from last week’s Street photography workshop. To me, each expression either tells a story, hints at a story, or leaves you wondering what the story is. All shot with my Rolleiflex 3.5E3, on Rollei RPX400 film.
