Fabulous B&Ws, Maria. I don't think you need to worry at all about not having your long lens!

Do you know that one can rate how good a photographer by how they took pictures in black and white?

Kaya hanga ako sa the likes of Ayala and his black and white portraits. Yours, by the way, is pretty good. : )

Wonderful collection of portraits! I was wondering, do you ask if they mind their photo taken?

Carver said...

These are fantastic shots from your people watching. I envy you your ability to photograph people so well.

To answer your question, the Durham Bulls are still a baseball team but they have a new modern stadium and the old one is used as a community ball field for non professionals.

Karen said...

Interesting shots, well done in B&W.

Al said...

I love people-watching anywhere there is a crowd. Great shots!

Jackie said...

These are really really amazing Maria. I always having trouble with people watching shots.

I love that you chose the B&W to display these with.

These are fantastic. I can feel the emotion of the people. Super job!

Colored shots are beautiful, but these people rendered BW are somehow more meaningful. They have beautiful faces! No wonder you can tour India so easily, because your husband is from Bangladesh. I've just been to India once, in Ooty, but maybe i am a bit scared to go to the very populated city alone!

Great expressions, and uncoached! I am still learning how to do portraits!

P.S. No worries about the wolves, they are so tamed. You can pet them.
