Week 6 Waiting (for customers) a little wonder around Castries today. Came across this lady Waiting for Customers. The street markets are great, full of life and colours.

Colours galore!! The first for me. This week the thread will be full of street photography so, like Rob, some of us will have to overcome our 'fear' of togging strangers or rather our dread at being spotted!

Still on holiday then. Think we are all green with envy on here. Fantastic colours in those images and fit the brief really well. love the first image so much to look at and you captured the detail well in the post.

Great candid images, love the colours.
Jim the whole town is full of characters and colours. Just a tad hot to walk around for a few hours. But worth it for the pics.
1st image for me Chris showing the lady waiting for someone to come and buy some stuff, both nice and colourful shots.
Dave she had a lot of competition from other traders, I don’t think her spot was very good.
Love the colours on the first image, and that expression says it all.
Ian, she didn’t seem happy at all !
Are you still on holiday?! <Not jealous at all>

These are excellent, Chris, particularly the first one as her expression immediately lets you know that she is waiting around for something or someone. I like your composition to place her on one side and her produce on the other.
Thanks Andrea still on my hols ! Back home in a few days. Back to the cold and reality. It was a shot where I just caught her expression.
Lovely colours.
I need to get over my fear of street photography, in my mind it seems rude pointing a camera at random people. Lol
Dave I always use my 50-140 and from a distance ! But some people just love their photo taken

Long lens Bob and make it look as if your taking a photo of something else. I always find you know if they don’t like it by their expression and generally if they put their hand up

Thanks Mandy back to reality next week ! It’s been easy to find the time to comment on the threads though, something I’ll have to keep up next week.
Love those bright colours Chris, I really like that chap pushing his sack truck, but it’s the first one for me purely on composition, I like the inclusion of the people on the left.
He was quite a character Susie, he actually didn’t cross the road but came up to me and started chatting about the weather !

1st one for me too though they both work lovely bright colour it’s something we are lacking here at the minute
Thanks Allan, it’s my favourite of the day, apart from this one. She just walked by with her shopping on her head. Didn’t fit the theme though

Thanks all for you comments and taking the time to look. I have always liked street photography but tend to use a long lens and make it look as though I am not actually taking a photo of them and then a quick snap.

Fantastic work Chris!

All these images are so compelling!
Such vibrant colours and interesting compositions, and the expressions are perfect....what great stories!
These could only work as colour images, and you've done a great job processing them to bring out the richness and contrast very well.
I think the first image is the winner for me too....it has everything just right!
Marvellous!!(y)

Thanks Gareth, it’s why I love the Caribbean. The people, the colours. There’s always something going on.

Thanks Dave
Nice colours and that's some expression you've captured.
Nice to see a bit more street.
Thanks Tim, I wanted to include as much of the vendor and her produce as possible. It’s a fine balance I think. I was stood the other side of the road and used my 50-140. I still get nervous taking street photos!
That 1st one is great Chris, love the colours, the expression is great.
Thanks a Michael
Two great images Chris. Like everyone else the expressions on their faces and the colours are brilliant.
Thanks Carl, I have quite a few other I took but haven’t had the chance to process them yet.
Like them both - good for theme and lots of colour and vibrance
Thanks Ian
Waiting
I think they both have their merits, but #1 is nice bright and colourful.
Thanks Dominic

Thanks all for takin* the time to view and comment !

Week 7 Rough

Couple for this one I think. First is the corner of a brick on our house and the second was a tree I came across recently. I can see faces, skulls. Used my XT2 and 35mm 1.4 absolute favourite lens.
