Another from my walk last week. Taken with the M4-P and 35mm Summarit f2.5 lens and shown full frame. Film was Ilford HP5+ developed in Tetenal Paranol S, and then post-processed in LR Classic. Whilst the developer will not be my future choice, it can yield some good results if you are able to control the grain. Certainly the tonal range is good.

I like it. I envisioned a deep discussion concerning carpet cleaning.

 

 

Who knows, maybe over price

I'm still trying to figure out what the guy on the right is wearing: it looks like a woman's dress with a slit up the side.

I have no idea but Graham is absolutely right that it is typical for India/Pakistan and probably he is a Muslim (although not necessarily).

I think it's called a Sherwani.

Examples here:  https://www.utsavfashion.com/men (though somewhat more colourful, the style appears to be correct).

 

 

Those are more Indian than Pakistani (Muslim), and are more elaborate in concept. My son-in-law is Indian, and that is similar to what he wore when he got married to my daughter. The gut in the photo is wearing something much rougher.

Love it Gerry. You could almost run a caption competition to change the carpet cleaner sign

 

 

Thanks Charlie - I appreciate you taking time to comment.

      Hi all.

      I always want to take photos, and I try to bring always the camera with me, to shoot and be happy 🙂. Sometimes, due to the pandemic, it's not the right moment to shoot, mainly because many people in Mexico don't care and don't wear a mask. I don't want to risk just for the pleasure of doing some street photography. Does it make sense?

      Every time I do out, I bring the camera with me, and while driving (in a safe way), I shoot from the window of my car at 30km/h approx. I use hyperfocal, practically point & shoot. When I'm lucky, my wife (and sometimes even my old dog) join me. And I don't drive 😂 but shoot 🙌 Sometimes from the passenger seat, some time on the back of the car. Depending on if you see the lateral rearview mirror, and/or the car frame window in the composition. Everything happens so fast, the car can't stop, and I have to focus quickly. I used zone focusing sometimes, and sometimes manually, depending on the situation.

      I would like to share with you this micro essay, to show a portrait of a Mexican city during these times, to use more my M10, in pursuit of mastering focus 😬 Sometimes I see a situation with superpotential, where I would love to stop the car and go out and compose well. But this is what the essay is about. Never stops the car and try to tell a story, or take just honest street photography. That's it.

      P.s. You can see my gray pick up car in the photos sometimes 🤷‍♂️
      Good vibes

      Yesterday I took to the streets of Southampton for my first brief venture for 5 months. This is one of the resulting images.
      Leica M240 + 35mm Summarit-M f2.5. 1/500 @ f 11 and 250iso. I used a Kodachrome plug-in with Lightroom Classic.
