Lens-artist’s Photo Challenge # 67: Candid

Over time, I have taken a number of candid images, sometimes with the subject aware, and sometimes not, but always “in the moment” images, not posed – and rarely with a telephoto lens.

When I was first taking photographs, I almost ALWAYS avoided people in my images, because I didn’t want tourists in the shot…and I was rather shy in the early days….anyone hat knows me now find that hard to believe!!

Anyway, here goes:

Probably one of earliest ones I ever took, an old lady returning from the baker’s in Tarasco Provence

Tarascon, 7 am, off to the bakers

  1. ‘Candid’ is a gift for you, Sue. One of your specialities. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. All interesting perspectives of people in everyday life. Loved your opener especially

  3. I’ve got to get over myself. I’m useless at pointing the camera at unsuspecting subjects on the whole. These photos show how worthwhile it is to do.

  4. like that street laughter one a lot – and good choices for the candid theme

  5. You are a star, Sue! No problems with candids at all. Love that first one from long ago!

  6. hi sue, interesting and wonderful picture you have taken to the theme, I like each one.
    greetings robert

  7. These are all great Sue. I still struggle to find the confidence to photograph people.

  8. Amy

    I love the various candid images! They tell the stories of daily life. 🙂

  9. Terrific shots. Those Londoners made me giggle. Thanks!

  10. Reading, walking, talking, being together–all those normal activities before cell phones.

  11. Great candids. A lot of variety. I like the blue jackets, the solo lady in the street, and the bicyclers, in particular.

  12. I do enjoy that one of the two guys in blue playing up to your camera. Great shot and lovely series of photos.

  13. Hi, Sue. The 2 happy fellas made me smile! Great captures.
