  1. Are you aware, J, when you take the photo of effect of color in these photos? The blue / green combinations of the bicycle riders shirts against the background of green steps & grass / blue door, accented with the red of the bicycle and on the signs. I mean, how could you plan for something like that? Everything works so well together!

    • As you quite rightly assume, Beth, there’s neither time nor opportunity to “compose” almost any of these pictures. It’s very much a case of “point and click”, in the hope I might catch just a passing moment in my neighbour’s lives.

      The vast majority of the pictures I take head straight for the bin!

      Even the few which seem worth a second look need pretty ruthless cropping to eliminate a whole range of extraneous body parts and often quite puzzling distractions..

      Thank goodness for digital photography. It opens the eyes of complete amateurs like myself to the many transient glimpses of beauty offered in everyday life..
