Coney Street in York is the ghetto where most of the chain stores have been dumped in order to protect the rest of the city. Somehow it has a totally different feel, harder and colder.
If you have time, please view Large.
Thanks for looking,
Mono for me - I like the variety of expressions and body language here
I was waiting for someone else to comment - I knew I'd be awkward and prefer the colour version!
Got to be No 2 for me, great shot, very good large, super detail.
There is more vibrancy in the colour v
no soul! not very busy though.
i still remember the high street in the town i grew up in sainsburys had a wonderfully tiled lined bow fronted glass counter deli & the fruit & veg shop was like out of a dickens story. shame time stops for no one unless your a museum curator that is! you captured the sterility nicely & bnw for me.
Plenty to look at in this image, a couple of things in particular
Nice streetscene Moira. Don't know why but my eye keeps settling on the blonde studying the sale window. Prefer the vibrancy of No. 2.
Plenty to look at here Moira.
Love the expressions of the young couple...they have both got their sights on something.
The young mum looks a bit frustrated, & the blonde lady can't quite make her mind up about something she has seen in the window...everyone else is just busy going about their business.
Oh yes...the colour version for me.
A street that could be anywhere; I wouldn't have known it was in York. #1 suits your feeling about it and works well, but I prefer the acid yellow colour kick in 2.
Excellent street scene, slight preference for V2,
Super street scene, v2 for me
There is always a story to tell Moira as does this image..excellent
Colour for me somehow there is more to see
Well,you will know what catches MY eye!!! A blonde and a brunette to boot too!!! Talking of which,a very nice pair on the blonde.At first I thought that was a little yellow mini she had on,but sadly it is only a plastic bag.The brunette on the other hand is more suitably attired to show of her fine assets.But why oh why could you have not waited ,and captured the gentleman, while in the proceess of the backward swing with his carrier bag!!!!! No wonder they are trying to ban these things!!!Still a very pleasing image for a dull grey Wednesday morning.Nice one Moira.
Yes I'm full of Spring testosterone too Moira so the blonde is the attraction/distraction here.
Looks like you have mastered the from the hip shooting .
An interesting image. Great capture.
Colour for me too. The mono version somehow lacks a little punch.
York is my favourite English city. Spent honeymoon with my first wife there
Good street scene. The BW works best as the colours tend to confuse
Nice one Moira - Jude.
Excellent street shot of a generic shopping street which could be anywhere really. V1 suits the genericness of it. Glad they didn't dump it in the historic centre of York!
Great in B&W Moira, it could be anywhere, all main streets look the same these days,
Godd candid Moira.I always feel on edge when I try to take this type of shot.You manage it perfectly all the time.
Great street scene - B&W for me.
once again the mono has the edge for me, i think for street shots it just works so well. Another well worked shot Moira
mono mono mono,,,excellent street candids
Mono works really well Moira
ghetto must mean something different on your side of the pond. Looks like the cleanest safest ghetto I've ever seen. Love the monochrome, something about your particular style of street photographey that really works either way but is just brilliant in mono.
That girl kind of looks like the young american actress that is always in and out of rehab too. her name escapes me at the moment.
Interesting that there's not a lot of interaction between folks here.
Seems a bit sterile- no litter, no eating and no smiles Helen
The mono works better for me moira,
Reads like the saps rising in some of your followers comments!
I prefer the black and white in this.
Great series of B&W´s lately.
well captured ;
#2 (& yellow patch) for me
A wonderful mrswoolybill candid, great work Moira.... loads of lovely interest
Mono for me Moira, pitty bill dident take one from the other end of the street at the same time, would have been interesting, well done.
Rather nice couple of young Ladies in this shot Moira. Infact, I don't find it hard and cold at all!
cant help thinking when i look at the girls that it could be the late 60's
nothing really changes does it
Oh no - EPZ ate my comment! (and it wasn't even rude!)
Love the mono version for the fact that we have to concentrate on shapes and dynamics. Simplifies a scene which otherwise would be a lot to take in at once.
Excellent documentary image Moira
Excellent candid Moira and your usual great job of capturing streetlife and the variety of activity.
Love the girl pondering whether she can afford to buy a new island, and the expressions on the couple are great - guess you must have been hidden in a letterbox toget this close without them spotting you.
Nice work Moria - like the colour version myself - good composition.
Nice work Moria. It's the coloured version for me.
HOW CAN SOMETHING SO SIMPLE BE SO GOOD?
its the sixties all over again
Nice candid shot. I like the b&w and how it pops with its contrast.
A super street scene Moira, I much prefer the colour version because of its vibrancy. That blonde girl looking in the shop window certainly caught my eye!
an excellent piece of street photography
