Photohunt: Wrinkled



This is a shot from Venice Beach, California, from June 2003. His shirt is completely wrinkled, it's tough to see unless you enlarge the picture I guess. The wrinkles in his pants are pretty obvious, aren't they? I remember that it was a really sunny day, but kind of breezy. I tipped the guy at least a buck, I'm sure, and I don't think he moved the whole time I stood there. Tough way to make a living.

This is my Photohunt from my current iPhoto library. (Hey, that's hunting too.) I'll be on the lookout today for a current shot to add for the theme. Although I think the only place I'm going is the mall, and while I know I will see plenty of wrinkles there, I doubt I'll photograph them!

If you happen to know a little something about cameras, leave a suggestion in your comments of a good camera you'd recommend. I have a Canon Elph, which is perfect to grab and go because it is so small. But I'm now thinking I might like an upgrade, something with a better lens, something I might even have to take a class to learn how to use. If you have one you like that is not too ridiculously expensive, please tell me what kind it is.

Thanks for stopping by! I really like the composition of yours.

As to cameras, I love my Konica/Minolta Dimage, but I've had it several years and I don't know if they're still making them.

I always wonder how street performers can do it. He definately is wrinkled.

The details are amazing!

I suggest a Canon. There are so many to choose from... I've had 3 different Canon's and loved/love them all. The Canon point and shoot cameras are really great and not to expensive... or if you have the $$ the DSLR is FAB!

Cool shot. He really looked like a bronze statue until I enlarged the photo.

Good choice for the theme. Very unusual.

(I want to thank you for the visit and kind comment. You probably can't go wrong with a Cannon. They make a good product. The small cameras of all types have so many features today for relatively low prices. Make sure you think of the 4-5 features you can't live without before you decide to go looking. And do some research on the net for particular models.)

Is that a street performer -- obviously he must be! Those guys are so amazing -- some in a good way, others in a distinctly odd way. I'm thinking this one must fall into the "odd" category. :)
