A little street colour

I’ve always found the genre of photography known as “street photography’ immensely rewarding and ultimately compelling. The thing I like most about it is that the simple act of carrying a camera, endows the photographer with a  heightened awareness, an alertness to the relationships of everything and everyone within their line of sight.

I often wonder whether non-photographers can experience this same sensitivity to their surroundings. They probably do; but even the most accomplished of writers would find great difficulty in conveying their observations in such detail.

I’m particularly drawn to strong colours and when it comes to street photography, the relationship of people within the viewfinder to those dominant colours. Here are three scenes from my travels that I particularly like:

Street scene, Malacca
