My photo of the week 45 

A hot, sticky evening last Friday as the Olympics were kicking off. I saw something rather intimate and very London in this scene. Maybe it's just me, but I like it.

Cool. Man the colors are pretty strong. Nice. Photoshop or camera?

Did anybody ever complained about you taking photos? Do you talk to these people?

Only some lens correction and output levels in Photoshop. This is basically out of the camera with the colours pulled back a little. I smile and shoot and smile again and if they ask, I tell them photography makes me feel alive, like flamenco.

Yes Simon, a very "warm, human" picture captured as an instant in time.
I like the multi-cultural aspect of London too.
You don't get that up here.
Your pictures are good man!

cheers,

Ron

ah yes I could imagine positive reactions if the photographer is somehow authentic with what he hoes.

It is indeed a nice photo, people must be more tolerant of that kind of thing in London. I have a friend who's photo happy, I was always telling him to be careful of taking pictures of strangers till one day he was chased around the LA county fair by some cholo's who thought he was taking pictures of their girlfriends. He's a little more careful about his subjects now.

Escribano, it's not you, I see it too. I also see a New York subway scene (or probably any other western metropolis, substitute your favorite name).

Thanks for the foto's.

bursche, you must know Spanish pretty well because I think your photo is related to the Spanish word "esmoquin," which translates to "dinner jacket" in the UK and "tuxedo" in the US.

I think the image is trying to refer to a 'smoking jacket' which is not a suit, tux or otherwise.

RE: My photo of the week 45 (in reply to Escribano

exactly.. a Smoking jacket , Some people have no style .... by jove and what ho ...(re-pronounced to esmoquin ..)
And the no smoking sign isn't weird its the London underground sign with the no smoking in the middle , instead of the station name for example ...

Sometimes you could tell what line you were on by the inside of the carriage even though it didn't have the name ....

That one looks like the Central line ....or possibly Jubilee...........

Simon, compare bursche's image to these definitions of Cambridge and the RAE:

http://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/british/dinner-jacket?q=dinner+jacket
dinner jacket: a man's black or white jacket worn at formal social events, usually in the evening, with matching trousers and a bow tie

http://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/british/smoking-jacket?q=smoking+jacket
smoking jacket: a comfortable coat for a man that is made from a soft material and is worn when relaxing at home, traditionally when smoking

http://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/british/tuxedo?q=tuxedo
tuxedo: mainly US for dinner jacket

http://lema.rae.es/drae/?val=esmoquin
esmoquin: Prenda masculina de etiqueta, de menos ceremonia que el frac, a modo de chaqueta sin faldones.

http://lema.rae.es/drae/?val=frac
frac: Vestidura de hombre, que por delante llega hasta la cintura y por detrás tiene dos faldones más o menos anchos y largos.

Can't be DC Metro. They would all be looking at an I Phone or a lap top.
