If you were like me it was a difficult task to choose between images taken on August 5th for an entry. I think it would be fun to see some of the images from participants that were not selected for submittal and entry.

Let's see what else you've got!

Here's one of the ones I didn't choose to get things kicked off.

Why didn't I choose it? It felt more like a street portrait to me and I didn't want to lose the spirit of the HCB theme. Then again, he did portraits so that might have been a bad decision.

Great idea Kent. Here's one I considered submitting. I call it "Back to School."

Oops! Been awhile since I uploaded any images to RFF. Forgot that I cannot simply enter the Flickr image link to have an image pulled into this posting. Will have to update this later when I'm back on my computer rather than working from my iPad.

I look forward to seeing it Randy!

Here goes. All photos were from Sifnos island, Greece, where I was for a few days. I am looking at the sleeve of negatives from the day and I sort of see how events unfolded:

Frame #7. I liked the white washed surface, the closed windows, the shadow from the drain pipe, above all the ladder. I wished something was happening though.

Frame #8. Would you believe, a man with a wheelbarrow. Wait for it, wait, waaait, BOOM!

Frame #9. It was gone. So was the inspiration.

An old woman passed from there (wasted a few frames) and then I went on the nearby beach.




Frame #15. It looked interesting then, not so interesting now.

(Turns out I knew the man playing with the kids though.)



Then I went for a Souroti (the Greek sparkling water) and I waited for the rest of the party to properly bake themselves under the sun.

On the way back to the villas my daughter started running up a staircase. Frame #17, the staircase:

If it weren't for the other one, I think I'd had submitted the one above for the Challenge.




The next few days I photographed a bit more and mostly in the same vein. Sometimes I snapped out of it and warped back into my own photographic concerns. But as I said in that other thread HCB has cast a long photographic shadow over Sifnos island. One way or another, I felt it very strongly during these few days. (HCB's iconic Ile de Sifnos, Grèce, 1961: http://www.christies.com/LotFinder/lot_details.aspx?intObjectID=5494203 .)

I came across this gentleman while in North Beach, San Francisco. He was on the fringe of a park and his attire amazed me as it was a very warm day.

In his own world.

Alkis, I just wanted to thank you for taking the time to walk us through your shooting day and corresponding thought process. I, for one, found it very interesting.

Randy, pleasure. I enjoy looking at other photographers contact sheets myself, so I thought it might be interesting to show a few frames here.

This was my original choice for submission. I probably should have rolled with it. I took this same image twice, once with a digital camera and once with film. This is the digital image as I was displeased with a scratch on the other version.

Dreaming of Home.

As I walked in front of the Ferry Building I spoke a bit with this young man who was earning money for college (UCLA). He was about a month from taking off for the new semester.

This one grew on me as the contest approached for it's gritty feel but I don't think it was quite right for this contest. Not really a moment, more a scene.

I must admit I thought my day would not yield much.
I was going to be setting in the L.A. coliseum for most of the day.
The first shot was only 2 frames of the man contemplating a religious pamphlet while standing in line.The one chosen had his finger in his mouth.

My other pick revolved around attention to the big screen behind us which was the focus of most people because it was closer then the stage and easy to video. A very popular Mexican singer was on stage as the last act. There were twelve frames of this group with 2 of the young girl looking directly in my direction.

The three selected I showed to my wife,who pick Father and Son. I was happy to see It get some votes.

Every thing shot with Canon G11 set to B&W 52 total frames
