When I photography people on the street I tend to go for a high contrast vignetted BW look. Not everyone's taste but hey that's what floats my boat at the moment :D

Having said that, there are always a few that seem to work better in colour. Here are a few from the last couple of weeks, hope you enjoy them!

This lady caught my eye because I was on a remote country road miles and miles away from the airport, and there wasn't a car or a house in sight!

This was taken with one of my favourie bargain bucket acquisitions, a 100mm f2 aperture-less night vision lens with ridiculous field curvature. I think of it as my telephoto lensbaby. :) I went for some retro colours in PP on this one (but no added blur, that's all the mad lens)

Nice set, but the one that stands out for me is Red shoes.
