Ohh, but I do…

I really enjoy leaving home with the camera. Even if for a simple stroll around the city.
The unexpected does tend to take place. A couple of shots came out that I’ll be adding to my deFocuseD series.

“Ohh but I do. I love the lights…”

    • Thank you so much, Margaret. I’m really glad you liked it. Some days I take the camera out and come back with only a shot that’s not even worth putting out there. Yesterday was a good day 😀

      • Awesome, I might try it out during the week when I get the time! It’s so fun to share common interest with people and see what they come up with! Keep up the good work! 😉

      • Thank you, Nad. Indeed. Blogging is such a great hobby. Try the settings and let me know. For pictures at night, if your lens can’t go below f1.8 you’ll likely need to push the ISO above 3200 or so (depending on the available light).

  1. I never leave home without a camera, you never know when something will cry out for a photo. I take my bridge camera out with a purpose, but there’s always the little red point and shoot in my handbag, and if that’s not going, then I’m never without my phone.
    Being in the right place at the right time is so frustrating if you can’t catch the moment.
    Love the lights too by the way. 🙂

    • Thank you for visiting Sallyann. I’m glad you liked the photos 🙂 You’re right! It’s always good to have a camera around. I also thing having one at all times allows me to be more in tune with what is going on around me. More grounded. Maybe it’s that subconscious element of “hunting for a special moment”.

  2. André, such a lovely mood set here. It puts me in it, makes me want to be a part of the crowd. I wonder–do you get nervous taking photos of people without asking? I am so often tempted to take a picture of some of the interesting people I see, but perhaps I need to learn to be more stealthy? Or bold!

    • Hi Paige, I’m glad you liked it. I used to be quite shy in the beginning. Then it evolved into trying to be stealthy and then to boldness. Nowadays I’m either shameless or stealthy depending on what the picture requires. I’ve learned that people react quite differently. Some will smile or even pose, others will be very annoyed or even angry. Ultimately I always tell people it is a beautiful picture and I can share it with them if they allow me to keep it. If not I delete it in front of them to avoid escalation.
      Unlike the US, the German law actually protects people’s image even in public spaces (public events are easier).

  3. Beautiful post, Andre. 🙂
    You leaving home with your camera is a nice habit. It only shows how you love capturing and sharing beautiful things around you. 🙂
    I could see your heart in it.
    Keep it up. 🙂
    God bless you.
