Capturing the mundane to create interesting stories

Sometimes, same photo/object can appear ‘greener’ on the other side of the fence camera.

Side story :

In case you haven’t read Monday’s post, I’m currently on a trip.

Sorry if I can’t get back at you earlier :-).

  1. Very nice capture! Love all the “poses” and expressions. Hope the weather is getting better where you are now :).

  2. Chimping… the curse of digital. I even chimp when I shoot film very frustrating.

    • It took me months of practice to stop chimping…I now don’t even think about reviewing my shots until I’m back indoors!

  3. Thanks for the comments, All. I’m sorry for the late reply :-).

    @Jenn: Thanks! I’m now back in Niigata (was in Sado, back to Tokyo tomorrow morning). The weather was horrible on the first two days, but the last one was good. Will post some photos next week.

    @Christakis & Mike: Haha… well, it looks like it, but I don’t think they were chimping. It was at a bus station, and most likely, they were only reviewing the photos that they took earlier while waiting for the bus.

    In regards to chimping, I personally don’t see it as ‘curse of digital’. On the contrary, I saw it as a bless of technology :D. I think chimping is just like post-processing; something you would do to enhance your photo. The better you are (in photography), the less you need to ‘chimp’ or post-process…

    I prefer to do some chimping rather than come home and get disappointed because my shots were not optimum (perfect is too strong a word :D). I don’t think chimping as a ‘sin’ :D… in street photography, chimping might not be a great idea, because the moment never repeat itself… but, sometimes it still works :D…

    Anyway, in the end, to each their own :-)…

  4. Very good. :) Only thing missing is someone near you taking your picture, taking their picture. :P
