Taken a while back ... I just wanted to share:
I love seeing your shots Seefut.
What's the story with this one?
don't know how it slipped through the net without any comments.
A stunning photo.
Thanks John. No real story. I was in college driving around the foothills of Upland, Ca, when I chanced upon a group of citrus pickers by the road on the edge of an orchard. I pulled over, hopped out and snapped a few. It was a very cold morning.
Man, this was posted over a year ago ... lol.
Thank you Canadianme. I've always felt compelled to look/stare at the eyes ... wondering how I would have felt if we were to trade places.
excellent shot Gary, reminds me of photos of the great depression era.
It is a rare photo that captures a look so hauntingly genuine, yes you are right it does make you wonder. It is one of the rare photos I think is genuinely timeless. Reminds of works by Diane Arbus, Bruce Davidson, Walker Evans, etc. It holds up to what I consider the best photographs, just a timeless classic. When I see a photo such as yours, they make me curious to what happened to them, it provokes curiosity. A true test of a great photograph in my eyes.
Wonderful capture Gary.
And rightfully resurected thread.
I love it as well, great connection with the subject.
That's y'all ... that photo is pretty special to me.
haha, i didn't even notice the date it was posted. I only went back a couple of pages...
btw, your personal website is a pleasure to browse. It has been bookmarked for future visits
Absolutley stunning shot - is all I can say about it!
