2014: My favourite images – October

October saw me visit Copenhagen for the first time and how I loved the visit. It is one the coolest cities I have ever been to. The people are calm, friendly and also very cool. In the week I was there I managed to get in as much shooting as possible and had some good fortune while doing so. Having cycled all my life, Copenhagen was a delight for me. The guy who I was renting an apartment from left me use of his bike for the week. This allowed me to get around the city with ease and to see as much as possible in a short time.

I really do not think I have ever visited anywhere and come back with so many images that I liked. With the DSLR, I loved these images taken on a sunny evening on the main shopping street in Copenhagen. You can click through to see the large images.

But the image which I like more than any that I got in Copenhagen has no recognisable features that can link it to the city of Copenhagen. It is a classic bokeads image. I have been doing fewer and fewer of those in recent times, and I do think it is something I need to get back to. I gave this one the title of “The weight of other people”. There is a theme of loneliness in these images, a yearning to be able to hide; hide from others and hide mainly from ourselves.  Other people should keep us buoyant. If they don’t, cut them loose.

October

As I was saying, I was so pleased with the images I got in Copenhagen and those shot with the iPhone were also great. Here are some of my favourites – you can click through to see the large images.

But the one I like most (even more than this one) again has no recognisable features of Copenhagen, but it is my favourite.

looking at art, a gallery on Flickr.

When Flickr first introduced galleries, I began to curate. Naturally, blur became prominent, but the ones I keep returning to are photographs of people looking at art. I have ten galleries of these.
What is it about images like these that appeals to me? I like the moment of quietness, of contemplation, of trying to see what can be seen.
Hope you like them too.

Just 4

Browsing the images posted to Superosity this week, I kept coming back to these four images. I had selected another five (as I have always chosen nine images) for the mosaic, but it just did not look good. And not being one to adhere to rules, I decided to limit it to these four images. Hope you like them. Maybe the photographers can give some background information about them. Thanks to all.
