  2. Nice work Camus.
    I particularly like that the person who wrote that used correct grammar. I see too many your instead of you're in graffiti! :)
    The people watching the earthquake news make some great shots. So much emotion.
    I love the City Waterfront one!
     
  3. Good series Camus, you certainly captured some great moments. Thank you for posting them.
     
  4. -great shots, thanks for showing
     
  5. I particularly like that the person who wrote that used correct grammar. I see too many your instead of you're in graffiti! :)
    Crap, I barely get it right (or is it write) in real world writing (or is it righting).
    You're (or is it your) right about that. In New Zealand they clearly have a more advanced group of graffiti artist!
    Gotta come back ot this thread when I get home, looks like some good images that don't get justice on a 3.5in screen!
     
  6. Thanks Camus - my votes go to In Manners Mall and In Civic Square
     
  7. I like "On City Waterfront" a lot, although they are all good.
     
  8. Many great shots indeed, but "On City Waterfront" is also my favorite.
     
  9. i like #1, 2, 4. i like #5 but i would crop the right hand side. these images grab me. thanks for sharing.
     
  10. #8 and 9 are heart rending. Very well captured moments, all of them.
     
  11. I particularly like that the person who wrote that used correct grammar. I see too many your instead of you're in graffiti! :)
    I noticed that too!
    You're (or is it your) right about that.​
    It's easy. If you can say you are instead, then it's you're.
     
  12. Thanks for the thoughts on these. SOme I've chosen to show can be viewed larger at http://www.camuswyatt.com/latest
    Have changed some of the titles, but I really need to spend more time on that. I lose interest in things like that pretty fast - anything after actually taking the photo really.
     
  13. I was hoping to see someone I knew.
    Some of them would be prime suspects for the "You're not unique" graffiti.
    Good enough to make me miss Wellington!
     
  14. The porthole in the side of the bus has unfortunate placement for the model in the ad . . .
     
  15. Very nice Camus. If I had to pick one, I would say #2 is my favorite - but really they are all good.
    They also remind me that I need to get back to using my K-7 and the little Limiteds. They've been sitting around for the last month and half while I've been using a 12-year old Nikon 300 f/4 on a new D7000. Of course, that Nikon lens (and several others) had been just sitting around since I switched from film to digital in mid-2007 with Pentax. I'm certainly keeping the Pentax gear, it's perfect for travel. Now I just need to take a trip someplace.
    Thanks for posting those.
     
  16. These are excellent photos. You have a good eye.
     
  17. Your incredible talent for composition and street shooting aside, these speak well for this range of focal length. An F or FA 28mm would crop to a similar frame. A combination of a small, unobstrusive lens on a small body (your K-7) with quick autofocus works very well for street and candid shooting.
     
  18. Up to your usual standards, Camus. I'm not going to pick 'n' choose, they're all good. I enthusiastically wave my two thumbs in your general direction.
