Very Chaplinesque.......helped by the angled shooting and excellent processing.

You have inspired me to purchase a cheap factory refurbished compact camera that I can keep in a pocket every time I venture out.

That doesn't mean that I will be abandoning my beautiful little Panasonic LX5 or Sony A55 though.

I am fascinated by the fact that nearly all of this series were shot as JPEGS with a discontinued JPEG camera........do you save to PC as TIFFS or as DNGs to prevent quality loss through processing?

It was for that reason that I bought my LX5 .

I love that little camera, but sometimes miss the zoom therefore my new/old Samsung W690 has 18 times optical zoom plus a very good lens, according to its reviews.

Now, are you very low down or just holding your camera at knee level? Whatever, it's worked out fine and adds quirkiness to his already-odd headgear. What a character. Smile

I was sitting in front of this gentleman. Moreover i lowered further the camera to have a more angled pov. Smile

Thank you!

I also like to see him reading. I wonder how you manage to shoot without making them aware of you, that must be your secret, Al!Wink

He looks like inspector Clouseau to me! Awesome shot. Level and angle looks like you clicked this in secret, do you? Smile

I thought of Charlie Chaplain, too.
The little cameras are perfect for this sort of photography, and are way under rated. Sometimes they beat the big ones by a mile.

Contempary Chaplin, Al.

inspector clouseau comes to my mind, as does Chaplin, just goes to show how a photo can stir all different things up in ones mind.great angle, great shot, just goes to show have bag will travel.

Well done Al congrats on the award well worth it.

Interesting that other people have commented on the Chaplinesque look - that was the first thought that came to my mind - a young Chaplin though. It's that mix of precision and untidiness, and the solitary feel. This is superb, and well worthy of the award.
Your comment on my upload re increasing brightness is interesting - I suspect that my monitor is calibrated a tad on the light side, yours maybe a tad on the dark side - this is definitely a lot brighter than I aim for. I like the effect, but it's not what I do. I'll admit that I do like dark...

This is superb, Al. He could be checking up on the next station, as you suggest in your title; equally, he could be admiring his own reflection in the window Smile

The great advantage of compact cameras is - - well, that they are so inconspicuous compared to a DSLR. My pocket Lumix travels with me even when I have a bag full of Nikons over my shoulder.

I admire the way you use this little camera. The HC is well deserved - congratulations!

Wonderful low pov and capture. Pleased to click you to 30.

Great angled POV, think you have inspired many people to try this ... I am always intrigued that no one seems to be aware you are photographing them.. A great series.. look foward to the rest
