France and Germany shots (my best work to date)

Europe Shots

Hey everyone! I was in Germany and France for two weeks and did a massive amount of shooting. It would be a little too difficult to embed here, so click the link above instead. My K-7 proved to be the perfect travel camera, it's so well suited for urban portraiture! I really like putting on my 16-50 or DA 40 and shooting from the hip. You can literally walk right in front of people without them knowing you fired a shot. Anyways, I'm really happy with how these turned out and it will be a considerable effort to match this.

Very nice series. The flow is well thought out and works well for me. I really like your creativity and style. Made my trip to Germany and Switzerland look like a Japanese tourist scrapbook lol

thanks everyone! I've been taking a bit of a break from shooting after that but I think its time to me to get back to the field.
