You win a prize if you can guess the year of this Ford.

I'll guess a '52 Ford, the year of my 1st car I bought for $75, but I became more familiar with the underside of the hood than the outside! Miles from home on my 1st real drive the carburetor linkage fell off the beast and I had to walk behind, find and reassemble before I could get back home.

Thanks for the help with the Flickr settings!

There was a thread on Dpreview talking about the dangers of photographing children. So far, I've never encountered a problem and this mother said it was fine to put her on the market's FB page, just not the name. Go figure.


1954 Ford Customline when going by the hood ornament and logo.
Personally I like the early 1950īs Ford trucks better then their sedans but most US manufacturers made mighty fine cars in the 50īs and early 60īs.

In regards to the dangers of photographing people in general, I found that in cities I visited people tend to be far more opposed to having their picture taken. I even got into a fight with a person who thought he was on one of the pictures I took in a shopping mall but wasnīt even remotely visible because of the narrow angle of view of the lens I used at the time.

Getting into a conversation with people of whom you want to take a photograph helps in preventing conflicts but what would the picture of the person jumping over a puddle somewhere in the 1930īs look like if Henri Cartier-Bresson would have stopped to ask him what he thought about the weather first. Sometimes spontanious snapshots only work if they are truly spontanious.

Buddy, you're the grand prize winner!!! I just don't know what that prize is.

You are absolutely right in what you say about Bresson's work, but he lived in a totally different time when folks weren't scared about everything.

I do believe it's the general atmosphere of the region in which one lives that dictates what's acceptable or not in the way of capturing images of others. I'm pretty sure if my market was in downtown New York or some other large city, I would face more obstacles.

Another of the Ford. I normally don't care for grain in my images, but in this case, I feel it added something to it.

Thnx A thumbs up will do just fine.

It was a different time indeed. Time, region, culture. There are a lot of factors in how photographers are accepted in public areas. I do believe that the way you approach people can make quite the difference as well. Possibly just as much as the equipment used. People tend to be more nervous if you point bigger lenses at them. Since I photograph a in public areas I stick friendly looking colorful stickers on the lens hood for my 80-200 AF-D lens. That was possibly the single most effective thing I did to gain more acceptance among people using the same areas I take my pictures in.

Never the best to try fast moving objects, I still tried out my 35mm 1.4 AI-s and 85mm 1.4 AI-s at the obedience trials. These (one is severely cropped) were with the 85. The dog in the portrait is named "Blue Skies" and would not stay still. A reminder of the fine line between striking, and ugly. I think she is a sweetie...

...Show more

I think lost most of my inhibitions to shoot people in public places when I shot motorsports on a regular basis. Back then I learned that the more professional you look (vest, two cameras or more, passes dangling on a lanyard on your neck), the more strangers will allow you to take their photo, in fact, some will want you to take their photo (like this drunk fan - linked since this is all Canon on film stuff). I don't remember anyone ever being intimidated by big lenses other than the people we were supposed to photograph, because they were surrounded by paparazzi mobs of media all the time. On the other hand, this was all before cell phone cameras began to change the public perception of how big a camera should be before it becomes a threat

When traveling, I generally found that when you asked for a photo of total strangers, it usually not only results in an ok to go ahead, but many times leads to communication and extension of hospitality. Here's an example from the island of Corsica - following that summer, we sent some photos to the subjects and even got Christmas cards back

these are all Nikon F3HP with 50mm f/1.8AI on slide film - what started out like this seen from the street while hiking through a small mountain town and not much of a photo







became this shot once we talked to them and asked for better access to get a shot of the "les animaux" ( I think this was posted here before a few years ago)







The one thing I don't do with my big lens is go to the local airport to grab some shots for the Mustang A2A thread - I expect I'd have security forces or cops roll up very quickly to make sure that's not a rocket launcher aiming at the planes
