Crete in Colour

http://www.jamesmaherphotography.com/images/0000/4193/crete_in_colour.jpg

1/500th at F8, ISO 800 (28mm).

There are many ways to cope with the stress of the crowded nature and piled garbage in the city.

I prefer to think of the garbage and the sludge-water flowing into the gutters as the mountaintops and streams of the 21st century.  Frightening but beautiful, if you are able to look at it in those terms.

Maybe I'll become the Ansel Adams of garbage photography.

Louis Vuitton

1/250th at F2.8 ISO 3200 (28mm).

Clearly the theme of this week is advertising.  This wasn't planned but probably a little bit subconscious.

This image also reminds me of one of my favorite shots from this year.

Guess in Red

http://www.jamesmaherphotography.com/images/0000/4341/guess_in_red.jpg

1/400th at F10, ISO 1600 (28mm).

You may say that this is just a coincidence or a random occurrence, but I think that this downplays the role of advertising and fashion in our lives.  I think there has to be a connection here and an influence.

What do you think, coincidence or not?

Label Whore

It was only a matter of time till I caught that damn Abercrombie bag next to a real belly. 

And if you visit New York, do not step foot into these three shops. Please.

Daily News, Hot Corner: Carroll Gardens

If I could live in any neighborhood in New York (besides the EV), this would be it.  Read why through the stories from the neighborhood locals in the larger version.

Red (and How Cindy Sherman Influenced My Street Photography)

http://www.jamesmaherphotography.com/images/0000/4161/red.jpg

1/400th at F7.1, ISO 1600 (28mm).

Hip shot.  It's much harder to frame correctly and to focus correctly but for certain shots it makes being candid and getting close so much easier.

However, that's not the main reason why I like it.  I go back to it time and time again because I love that slightly lower perspective that it gives, elongating people just enough to give them presence and stature, while also giving a very pleasing upward view of the tall buildings in the background.

This Cindy Sherman self portrait, while completely separate from the realm of traditional candid street photography, has probably informed my street photography more than any other individual photograph.

Soho Landscape

1/320th at F13, ISO 400 (28mm).

Treat the city or where you live as if you would a landscape in nature.  You might find it to be even more beautiful on occasion.
