Photographer's Note

Antwerp, Belgium

Street Photography..definitely not my forte...but I gave it a hand for the first time, 12 years back.
I chose Black & White film to try and capture through my lens, the various actions & emotions of common people on the streets, to the best of my limited abilities.

This photo was taken near a café in Central part of Antwerp…I was standing and admiring the bikes...but then I was not the only one....

Scanned from the old Black & White (1994) print.

I still remember my first post in this amazing website...1st February, 2006....the Bayon face looking at the sky, still one of my favourties, but ignorant as I was about PP at that time, the photo suffered from pixellation due to resizing.

1 year has passed since then & TE has almost become an addiction. What gives me most pleasure is to be able to share my photographs with the vast spectrum of viewers & also be able to see and learn from others. The amount of things I have learnt (and still am) from members of TE community is immense and the people I have learnt from are too many to mention. But you all know who you are. I don’t want to name anyone because I’m afraid that I will miss someone out.

So what have I got from this site?

A whole lot of friends in this virtual space, with whom I hope to meet up with some day,…. acquaintance and friendship in real life with some exceptional photographers…. and lots of good honest critiques for my photos.

And from my part, what have I to offer?

Admiration....loads of it, for you and your photographs. It is truly a humbling & learning experience for me. Hopefully over the last one year, and within my limited capabilities, I have become a slightly better photographer.

Hence this post & the caption. A big thanks to all of you.
