Another earthquake? Another hurricane? LOL
Anyway, yesterday I wrote a blog post asking for your help in selecting one of four photos to submit to a street photography contest this coming Friday. That would be the day after tomorrow….September 2, 2011….
After I posted, I got a lot of good feedback right away, which was really nice. To those of you who took the time to comment on the blog, on my Facebook Page, or via Twitter, thank you so much! You are the best and I really appreciate your input.
To those of you who are procrastinating or just being obstinate, well…. let’s just say, what’s up with that? I thought we were cool!
It will only take you about 5 minutes to look at each photo and tell/tweet me which one you like the best. That’s all. Nothing more.
Anyway, here’s where we stand with the four photos, in ranking order, most to least preferred:
If you don’t like “Man, She’s Not Impressed,” register your comment by choosing from one of the other three images below, which are all tied for 2nd place… go figure:
Yes, I called the above image “Chicken Head.” I took this at the 2010 Mermaid Parade in Coney Island. She was wearing a KFC bucket on her head and chatting away with her friend, totally oblivious to everything going on around her. Appropriate? Yes. I think so.
One of my favorites is the above image, “Respect His Manhood” which I shot on the streets of Jersey City, NJ last year. A man who has the guts to use a frog umbrella in the rain without blinking an eye gets my respect.
Finally, I was going to go with “Lovers In Their Own World” (originally titled “Lovers Embrace Among the Chaos”) because I think it embodies what street photography is all about. In the midst of all of the chaos in the heart of midtown Manhattan, in a city notorious for its anti-commitment, love em’ and leave ’em sentiment, I captured this couple, holding one another in a tight embrace, oblivious to the madness. They didn’t wait, they found each other, held on to one another, bags and all. Believe me, that’s a feat unto itself (those of you New Yorkers can relate to what I’m saying).
