Street photography gallery curated by Karina Brys
Every few weeks we have a new challenge in our FB community, each one hosted by a different photographer, who introduces her challenge, then curates the top picks from the submissions. Some are featured on our IG or Tumblr, and may result in a gallery here on our blog. She also then selects the person who will run the next challenge. We had the challenge from Karina Brys “Yin Yang.” She says:
“In Chinese philosophy, yin and yang describe how seemingly opposite or contrary forces may actually be complementary, interconnected, and interdependent in the natural world, and how they may give rise to each other as they interrelate with one another — such as light and dark, fire and water, expanding and contracting.”
Street photography gallery curated by Pauline Miller
Every few weeks we have a new challenge in our FB community, each one hosted by a different photographer, who introduces her challenge, then curates the top picks from the submissions. Some are featured on our IG or Tumblr, and may result in a gallery here on our blog. She also then selects the person who will run the next challenge. We had the challenge from Pauline Miller “Street Games.” She says:
“I’m sure you will agree that with all the computer games and social media that surrounds us, it has become a scene worth preserving when you see kids, or adults interacting and having fun by participating in some outdoor game or activity. Memories of my own childhood come flooding back when I’m fortunate enough to come across such scenes.”
I caught this striking looking woman who approached me at a pedestrian crossing in Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong. Shutter speed was slow and high DOF but there was also some movement in the camera, as I tried to avoid the other pedestrians coming towards me.
Pauline is originally from Scotland, and has spent the last 18 years living in Hong Kong, and traveling throughout Asia. She enjoys many genres of photography, but her passion is on the streets where she savors the challenges and unpredictability that it offers.
