City of People: Old Habit Dies Hard - Exploring Street Photography #2
Text and picture by Eki Qushay Akhwan
The habit may begin as an innocent tryout. Then it sticks. How many smokers have tried quiting the the cigarette addiction. How many fail. The old habit dies hard.
Another picture of my City of People series taken from the streets. And as I promised yesterday, I'm going to write more about street photography.
Street photography usually concentrates on a single human action caught at what Henry Cartier Bresson called "the decisive moment". It is the moment that tells the whole story in a single frame.
Although not always, street photography is usually done as black and white photographs.
