    My husband is brilliant with his camera. On our special dates, he dates with his cameras and gadgets, as well. While I, with my books and Tablet :). I wait standing by or sit at bench nearby while he shoots street scenes. He has the eye for great resonance around him. His camera captures them.

    Here, to show and tell.

    I was standing beside him, here, as he took this magnificent picture.

    Modesty aside, some of them were my suggestions that he'd shoot. Quite good!

    Gee, you have an eye for beauty and a good camera as well. Those shots are worthy of being framed on the wall. And I appreciate more because your photos are all in color. I wonder why those so called professional photographers usually shoot in black and white. When I asked the president of the camera club in our office, he reasoned that black and white projects the subject with a deeper mood than the colored photo. I wonder.

    These photos are amazing. Your husband is a great photographer. I especiallly like the one with the seagulls flying in the blue sky with eh clouds. It gives such a feeling of peace to look it. I also like the ones that were taken at night clarity is so breathtaking. Thank you for sharing these photos with all of us.

    You have good reason to be proud of your husband. His photos are wonderful.

    While I agree that colour enhances these particular shots, some subjects are better suited to black and white. What the president of the camera club told you applies some of the time, but certainly not always. When I take photos I generally shoot in colour to give myself options later on, but I often convert my photos to black and white using Photoshop.

    Great shots. I've carried a camera around with me since korean war days. Photographed everything up until the digital revolution. Now my equipment is bagged up in the corner of my closet. If I ever had an eye for a good shot, it's gone. Again, beautiful photos.

    Those are some amazing pictures. I love taking pictures, and someday hope to have a good camera, but I don't have the patience to fuss with a bunch of lenses, although finding one point and shoot camera that can take both good distance and macro pictures is difficult, if not impossible.

    I love street photography and yours are wonderful, particularly the second with the moon just showing up in the sky.

    Twilight/nightly views are my favorite when it comes to photography, and street fun.

    Well, here is my contribution, just one photo for now because I still have to rummage in my archive. It was taken just last Saturday when I left the house for the market. Nothing special but it caught my fancy because it is an unusual thing. Sorry but I would not elaborate anymore so as not to spoil the party. Just take a clear look and I'm sure you will see what's unusual in my photo. IMG_4991 patola.JPG

    That was a typically 'Filo' day in the life of the Philippines. :) Where is this? How about the photo below. Does it look familiar? That was an early morning run to the local market. Amazing photo, isn't?

    Thanks, @Carlota Clemens I have my husband to thank to. He's allowed me to use them for my writing. He's a professional, but would not admit it :)-)) He displays them at Flickr.

    I've enjoyed all the photo on here. I wish others would post some of their street photos.
