photography & humour
« on: July 12, 2007, 05:55:26 AM »

Hello community,

my name is Elke and I love street photography. I like photos with a special kind of humour and pictures of the ordinary everyday life.
A good example for that is the website of a German photographer:

http://www.siegfriedbecker.com

I hope you like the site as much as I do.

All the best and happy shooting
Elke

P.S. please be patient with my (school) English!

Hi Elke, and welcome to the list.  The photographer you listed has a good eye for street work!  Here's one I found recently that's in line with those.  It was taken with my wife's Canon A95, so the quality isn't that great....

If I were taking this photo, I would let the air out of the front tire, move the right paddle out of the way so that the flat tire shows. (And run like hell before the owner returns.)
