Portraits of strangers
Oh, my! These are wonderful portraits!
thank you so much, Lois!!
I love how punk rock the attire is on a lot of these individuals!
though I’ve never thought about it before, I think you are right that there is a pattern in the type of people I’m drawn to photograph in the steets… definitely a punk rock statement in the looks and attitude of some of them… this is the type of people I feel comfortable around 🙂 thank you so much for taking a look!!
I love the whole style, which is how it started out. In New York, the sound came from CBCB’s club, folks like the Ramones. Great Britain took it, and the Sex Pistols came out, basically to sell McClaren’s clothes. And I found it a few years later in the Mid-West of America as an ethos. It rocks!
oh, I didn’t know all that, so interesting 🙂 I didnt know Malcolm McLaren was also a clothes designer… thought it was his girlfriend, Vivienne Westood… but yeah, you are right, it’s not so much about the looks, it’s about the ethos, about the ways of self-expression… thank you so much once again, Ted!!
You are probably right on that. I need to do a search. Perhaps McClaren owned the shop, and sold her fashion designs. I will look into that!!!
isnt it middle of the night where you are, you are not sleeping on your part of the planet? 🙂
I am a night owl. The weather in this region is miserable during the day. It gets hard to breathe. At night it is very pleasant, I feel as if I am in an Arcadian heaven. No humans out. Just trees. I think it runs in my family tho, Grandpa worked in the coal mines. He was up 20 hours a day. Does that answer the question? 🙂
I’m a night owl too… I prefer to work at night (mine is a computer job) for the same reasons, it’s more quiet and peaceful… and I dont have much of a choice really, cause in the day I have to do other things the difference is that where I live is nothing like Arcadian heaven, day or night lol… 🙂 coal mine work is hard work, I’m in awe with your grandfather for having worked so hard… it’s a coal mining reagion? are the mines still operating?
Grandpa worked in South Eastern Ohio in the mines, and as far as I know now they are closed. I live in Indiana, which is next door. My ancestors settled in Ohio in the 1790’s. The area looked like Scotland, and still does. I have pleasant memories of Ohio. I still am flabbergasted by the work ethic of my granddad. Yes, evenings are more conducive to work for me as well.
