  1. That is a very cool photo! What I see is a group of close people, standing together in a strange surrounding. And reading the caption I might be right.

    Fantastic photo!

    Best regards,


    • Thanks Tieme. They were part of a larger group of Malaysians traveling in Turkey. The children were standing on a step that surrounded a column. The children were intently watching others. The trio made a nice composition.
      Thank you for your insightful comments.

      • They seemed to be concentrating on the activities of the others in their group without interacting with them. It was a surprisingly nice set up without setting them up.
        Yes, the camera is DSLR and cannot be missed when I’m shooting at eye level. Lots of time I’m holding the camera down at arms length with the strap around my wrist. I’ve got the camera set to aperture priority, f/6.5 and 800 ISO. That helps with the motion if not in too dark of a space. I’m also using back camera focus. That is something that I would recommend for any street shooting. Even with this the Grand Bazaar did give me some lighting problems .
        There is an argument that eye contact from the subject destroys the anonymity of the photographer. I find that eye contact increases the intimacy between the subject and the viewer. As you can see I’m doing more direct portrait images by asking permission. Most of those are shot at very close range with a 16mm focal length and adjusted in post production.
        As always, thank you for your comments. I hope you are settling in and returning to full recovery.


      • There are pluses and minuses to eye contact. It all depends on what you the photographer want the image to be in the end. I’m truly enjoying your portrait series here. The settling in is progressing and I’m only missing a few things now 😉 but the recovery? Sigh…there is a MRI in my future and who knows what from there. Thank you for asking.


      • True on the intent of the photographer. That should always be so.
        Modern medicine seems to be able to do so much good for patients. You should be included in this group!
