Here is something that I did as an experiment. Walking in New York city, I felt as if I was constantly walking into a crowd. I was disoriented, and adrift from my family, since I was behind my lens.
I was in constant motion and tried to capture this with my camera….How did I DO?

That is so neat! I love pictures like this. It’s so real. 😀 Kind of poetic, at the risk of sounding silly.
thanks Daph, nice to here from you…I get what your saying. You in words, me pictures.
These sure are different Gail…. in a way the capture of motion like this is great…
I know, they certainly are, thank YOU!
Gail, this is what photographic creativity is all about. What a superb idea and, very well executed. 1, 5 and 6 speak loudest to me but as a series.. you clever thing! Well done and thank you for sharing. Inspiring stuff. 🙂 Warm regards from a sunny corner of Scotland… R.
Thank you for your thoughtful comments ROB…my favorite one is the upper right corner..it really gives me a sense of the city. I’m wondering if it’s the red that guides you through the street? Or, maybe because that’s my son in the red jacket.
I love these kind of images Gail, I think you did great. I’m a fan of this type of photography – here is a link to one of my posts -http://joeinfocus.wordpress.com/2013/10/02/the-ghost-of-42nd-street/
just looked at it…really mice shot!
Thanks Gail 🙂
Excellent! Hand held wide open shutter?
well, not exactly…small aperture, 1 second exposure…handheld walking.
Hi, Gail. I read your post a few days ago and had to think about my reaction before I commented because your pictures made me feel melancholy. I think your thoughts and fractured photographs made me think of being disconnected from family, a natural emotion, I guess, as our children are adults now and growing away from us, yet still so close. Anyway, I’m not melancholy anymore, just impressed with the reaction and response I had from your creative photography. Very cool.
Elisa-that certainly makes me happy, and sad. I totally understand what you’re feeling. I’m right there with you. My daughter is getting ready to travel to Australia, to study abroad, and my son off to college.
I love the song playing in the background. Where have you been? Hope things are well for you.
There is a song playing….where?
I’m good…been a bit delinquent on the blogging…Thanks for noticing!
