I’m a huge fan street photography. Raw, unposed, and real.

Amsterdam: Day Three

Enjoy more random photos from my third day in Amsterdam, with a few processed into black and white because I thought they’d look more epic.

Amsterdam: Day One

Over one month ago, I spent a week in Amsterdam with my coworkers (Core Happiness Engineers of WordPress.com). These are select photos from my first day there, all taken with my iPhone 4S and Camera+ while trying to fight jetlag.

While I process and upload the rest of my photos, check out photos from the rest of the crew (I’ll add more links if/when they post theirs):

Hello, Philadelphia

After I got back from my trip to Philadelphia and New York City in October 2010, posting photos took a back seat. I’ve meant to move on with my newest photos here without worrying about cross-posting on Flickr (I’m not active there anymore), so I’ll just continue from when I last posted a fresh photo here (Meet Brian).

I took this photo outside the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art on my first day photowalking around Philadelphia. I didn’t run up the stairs. Walking all over town wore me out. :)

While walking across the street from the Wiltern to the Wilshire/Western subway, this man walked between the cars asking for money. The print is pretty much how I envisioned it.

Unfortunately, I’m still trying to get more detail between the man’s head and the trees in the distance. This is probably my 8th print attempt. I’m scared that no amount of dodging will bring it out.

I would scan the negative, but I don’t have a film scanner. I’m not sure if I should save money towards buying a Canon CanoScan 8800F.

Like before, I tried to get this scanned print as close to the real thing as possible. I cropped out the white borders since they weren’t clean.
