Homage to Jay Maisel

Published September 6th, 2012

In order to get to know my D7000 a little better, I've decided to give myself a task that Jay gave himself. That is find a backdrop and let the action come to you. So this started with the first pic, in which I only had a few seconds to capture the woman's confusion on her face as she was checking her cell phone (a bus blocked my view of her). Anyway as I love watching people, giving myself this wee exercise wasn't a pain to do.

Sartorial Confusion

This woman started the whole thing. For some reason, either she or the sign caught my eye from across the road. She looked so confused & of course the words were popping out at me. Within seconds though a bus had parked in between us & I wasn't able to reframe the image Landscape.

Sartorial Confusion

Of course not all were confused or Sartorially challenged. I didn't even realise I'd shot my dear friend and immaculately presented friend till I got to look at the pics back home

Sartorial Confusion

After I got this guy, I knew there were going to be more than just these one or two, and that it may be worth hanging about to shoot more folk

Sartorial Confusion

Most people were completely oblivious to me on the other side of the road, but I didn't mind that the odd one or two noticed me

The sign must be new, because every other person was actually checking out the words
