So do I. This one is mysterious to me. Why is that figure on the left so bathed in darkness from the neck up? But whatever the reason, it's a such a great contrast to the girl on the right leaning forward and looking so flirtatious. All that black space threatens to swallow everything else whole, yet she seems to be making an effort to escape from it - or perhaps invite you into it... Great stuff - frightening!

I have to honestly say I'm really impressed with your work on portraiture. You've done a great job creating stories about these people using images and practically no text. Letting the viewer decide how they want to interpret your pictures is one the best gifts you can give as a photographer. good job.

@Kody Whiteaker: Thank you so much Kody. I really appreciate those words as Ive been having a somewhat difficult time of late regarding motivation etc...Nothing major just felt like Id hit one of those creative walls that one tends to run into every now and again. the current series is an attempt to get back into gear by doing things a little differently, whether that be via my subjects or via my Post Production methods. Your comment means a lot to me. I thank you again.
Superb B&W As your habits. :-)

Another interesting (and fabulous portraiture) capture of train life. I am very curious about your modus operandi. It looks as though you were sitting on the floor! Do you shoot from your lap using the LCD? Do you pretending to fiddle with your camera or signal that you are shooting? You have me really intrigued now.

@Helen: Thanks Helen. Yeah I use the lcd screen and shoot from lap. I usually have a 'distractor' to help me out in the form of my ipod/psp or something perched atop the camera. I never signal im shooting so everything is candid. Thanks for the interest! (the 'pretending to fiddle' is a great technique btw!)
