was there some rule about b/w images?

shot from the hip with a manual focus yashinon dx 50mm; don't tell him I got his picture
No rule. Part tradition (which is silly) and part because it may suit the pictures. The way I see it, going black and white is a way of simplifying a picture so that the actual objective is more in focus by removing colors that could otherwise be distracting. It is also simply because I grow up in a darkroom and really love black and white and the process of tuning contrast, greyscale etc to something I beleive to be an improvement, the only change is that I now do it in lightroom instead of the darkroom. Some +90% of my street shots I do in black and white, but when I do believe colors add something to the picture I may keep them.

Was he asleep?

What role models are we giving our children. What dreams does that leave them with?


I guess they are sisters?

He was most definitely asleep, and a few thunderclap K10 shutter clicks a foot from his ear made no difference. In fact I think that everyone in that bench was asleep. They circulate a strange airborn drug on japanese trains that will put you to sleep as soon as you sit down, yet somehow imbues you with a telepathic ability to wake up seconds before your stop.

I had another that was framed better to show his zonked-out-ness, but I missed focus slightly:


Here is another taken from the same position pointed accross the train, dont have to go far to find more narcolepsy; Monochromed to fit in ;p


More in the Tokyo subway:

"If your photos are not good enough, you are not close enough."

Robert Capa


Of course he talked about war photo, but I think it may apply to street shooting as well.

Yes, indeed I have read and heard that.....I think of it often. I also agree with you Douglas on the black and white conversions. At the end of the day though, to each his own. As much as I try to post in color, the only ones that seem to work for me are the ones I shoot with film.

I was going to say the same thing. And I think I would also have kept the nice warm color on this photo. Well done!
