What a face and the dots of makeup right below the eyes!

That’s a dramatic face

On the Street…Cricket Player, Mumbai

Watching a pickup cricket match and finally found a real New York Yankee at bat!!!

 

If it looks like that hard red leather ball is coming right at me it’s because it was!!

 

Right after this frame I think I was hit by the ball, a fielder, and my guide all at once as we all tried to handle our respective duties but we all came through with no majors injuries !

On the Street…University Place, New York

7816university5014

I see this woman in my neighborhood occasionally ( usually when I’m on my bike, this was my first chance to photograph her).

 

She’s always wearing some version of this splatter pattern on every item she’s wearing.

 

I wonder if anyone here knows her story.

 

Shots like this are challenging because it’s tempting to jump to conclusions about her economic situation (which none or few here know the facts) but all that we do know is that she has a wonderful eccentricity.

 

I don’t know what kind of comments are appropriate for a photo like this other than something like “more power to her”. Photographers like Lissette Model and Diane Arbus made their careers shooting people on the fringes of society but I wonder if those type of photos today feel informative or exploitive?

 

Maybe I’m overthinking but I do love her commitment to a creative expression of her personality.
