Crowds, dislike them… I try to take landscapes and when someone gets in the way I wait impatiently until they’re gone… so this week Ed THANKS.. .I have to find a crowd… well on the weekend I was in Sydney and this is as crowded as I like!
The Queen Victoria Building in Sydney (QVB) is always a drawcard to me. I cant help but take picture there. It was fairly dark and I was trying to get the crowd rushing past, being a bit artistic. Of course when I decided to take photos the crowd dispersed but I think it still counts…just!
For more Crowd work challenge photos head over to Eds Sunday Stills
Nice shot. Don’t you hate when someone gets in your photos? I was taking photos of busker at a market on the weekend (with is consent) and he was smiling as he was singing but as I’m trying to take photos of him, there were two men standing behind him watching me take photos. I couldn’t keep waiting for the perfect shot so I took it anyway. Now trying to work out how to get rid of these guys in the background. lol
I do have a crowd photo for the challenge this week but haven’t edited it yet. 🙂
Thanks Sue… I usually scowl in desperation sometimes. Once I was photographing a tree stump and this man just came up and moved directly in front of my shot for no reason other than be annoying…. I just shook my head ….hmm maybe I’m not a people person! 🙂 Look forward to your crowd post. Shame you couldn’t blur the background somehow….
I was going to wait but the poor busker was just smiling away at me. lol
I’m working on a way to make the background dark. Well that’s the theory anyway. lol

I began smiling about your definition of a crowd, given the basic lack of one in your photo, until I read your explanation about people dispersing when you finally took your shot 🙂 I think you did yourself proud with Ed’s challenge! Love the movement you captured, and love the slight Dutch angle – really adds to the sense of movement and, without it, I don’t think the photo would be nearly as interesting. By the way, I hear you about not shooting people, though I’m starting to warm to it (surreptitiously photographing them – I’m not even close to the level of asking!). One experiment I had a lot of fun with on my recent travels is shooting from the hip – I’ve captured some great photos of people that way 🙂
