People Photographs

I prefer pictures of things or places, so I’m not especially into photographs of people, but these pictures capture expressions that offer a glimpse into the person’s feelings when the photogragh was taken. What I believe is the essense of the best human photographs.

Left to right, in the first picture in the first row of pictures, I’ve many sailing pictures, but this one in particular seems to capture our feelings of freedom from everyday thoughts and the euphoria we felt when sailing. A mixture of inner peace, happiness and brotherly commeraderie. The 2nd picture is of a street mime with unusually creative makeup. When I stopped to take his picture, the visitor shaking his hand and the mime spontaneously turned to face me--the visitor showing a bit of self consciousness contrasted with the self assured mime with his and peace sign. In the 3rd pic, I really like the light and color contrasts, especially the two spots of light shing through the tree branches on the sculpture and artist.

In the second row, the little girl and Queen were posing for the girl’s mom. I shot this pic between and underneath the legs of the person in front of me. Despite being in a packed crowd of people, the lack of visual clutter turned this into a outstanding shot. Continuing the theme of children, alone with their thoughts in the midst of crowds, the next pic of the little boy racing on a pit bike in Laguna Seca surely captured the inspirations, perhaps even the aspirations that grow on you while watching the motorcycle races. Continuing the motorcycle theme, I’ve included this picture (taken by Reg Kittrelle) because it so well reflects the happiness of early BattleTrax participants posing with Erik Buell. This was in the early days, when H-D dealerships were fighting each other for that new Buell business, before they really knew what they were getting into! Ahhh, what a wonderful time it was to be a Buell owner...

Some helpful hints to minimize download times and increase your viewing pleasure:

  1. Click on one of the thumbnail images (shown above). A new window should appear, containing only the full-size photo.
  2. Resize the new window to fit the full-size photo (fit is ok when you see no scroll bars).
  3. Move the full-size photo somewhere else on your computer’s screen (so you can see the thumbnails (this) page and the full-size photo page).
  4. Now, each time you click on a thumbnail, the full-size photo page will display the new photo.
  5. (You may need to adjust the new window size to fit the slightly different size images.)
  6. To flip through the large photos, use the browser’s back/forward/history controls at the top of the full-size photo page.
