Patchwork by alexskyline Patchwork by alexskyline
I am fascinated by street photography. It is that one kind when the whole world turns into your personal studio. It pleases my laziness as well - no preparations, no clean-ups afterwards. No less important is the feeling of competition - hurry to take a good shot before the perfect moment is gone, or you've got to move on yourself. And of course, the best part is: you never know what you can find.

I'm just a beginner in this field - not to mention I'm a huge stay-at-home. However, I travel quite a lot, and this is when I love to wander around. But I'm yet too shy to take pictures of strangers. So the objects of my attention are usually my most favourite things in the world - cars.

It shouldn't be anything fancy - tell you more, the prettier the car, the more is the chance I'll ruin the shot by forgetting about any rules of composition and what's not. Or will end up taking pictures of the rims. No, the car may be anything. Sometimes, all those little old shabby cars are even more photogenic, in the way they blend into the cityscape.

Unless you're in the glass-filled business centre.
But then you can play on contrast.

So there you go: a narrow street in Porto, a bright-coloured door, an old Citroen, and a little pick-a-boo lady! This is my level of street for now.
What do you think? Critique is very much encouraged!

I really like this! The colors and the composition are really pretty. The yellow leaves piled by the blue door, the yellow wall, the white of the car, and the white of the other wall. And the little bit of dark red on the window-bars. I like it. :)
