Another candid Street Portrait, this time of a young man selling wine at an open air market in Eymet, France. Shot with a bridge camera, the Panasonic Lumix FZ28 while teaching a workshop there.

A lively conversation on the Promenade des Anglais in Nice, France.

In Your Face


Vieille Ville (Old Town), Nice, France

Street dogs, like this handsome fellow, are an important part of my street photography.


I went back into my archive; back to 2008, and pulled up this photo from a trip to Zacatecas and reworked it in Snapseed, on my iPad Air 2.

Another shot from the archives on my daily photo blog When a Painter Snaps, which ran from 2010 through 2013. This post appeared on October 29, 2012. Here's what I had to say at the time:

This shot from my visit to the Nacional de Charro in Zacatecas, Mexico, in 2008, is an example of panning. I focused on the foreground horse, and moved along with it as it passed three or four feet in front of me. Having bucked off the Charro who attempted a bareback ride, this yegua is being steered to the exit gate, out of the ring, and back to the yeguada.

A big Thank You to all you wonderful friends and family members who wished us a Happy New Year and a Happy 27th Anniversary. Thea and I thoroughly enjoyed going over them together.

Today, we were paid a surprise visit by the Comanches! More on that tomorrow. With pictures.


Hasta mañana.
