Cheap Elegance
Due to me not using a Leica, I can now offer Street at 20% off. :lol:

All These People
 "All these people with no home to go home to
They'd all like to spend the night with you
Maybe I would, too" - Warren Zevon, "The French Inhaler"

It took quite a few tries to get what I want, but when I did, it was much better than I could have hoped for.

Canon 6D, 28-135 (30 mm), 1/250, f4.0

New Mythology XI
(My contribution to the "Against Ebola" project nature-abstracted.deviantart.c…. If you want to join, hurry, the deadline is November 7.)

Way outside my usual turf, but oddly close to my heart. Digital and analog photography, digital manipulation and drawing.

Abundantia - Daily Deviation

Fri Aug 30, 2013, 8:39 AM
Just yesterday I arrived back from vacation, and at the first day at my desk, I discovered that my picture 'Abundantia' has become today's Daily Deviation for the Street gallery, courtesy of myraincheck, who is one of the true treasures of the site. Thank you so much, Mary!

Abundantia by EricForFriends

I don't want to heap praise on my own work, but let me just say that for me, the picture and the praise that it got represents the experience that can makes Street photography special to the photographer himself or herself. You milk many cows to get the cheese, in the words of HCB, you wear out your best shoes for years, you try to be as clever and adroit as possible, and then, one Sunday afternoon, everything comes together in abundance, in a quick parting shot, when you weren't thinking that much about Street really.

It can happen to any camera, to anyone. Wear good shoes and keep your eyes and your hearts open. :camera::heart:

I work as a travel writer, translator and semi-professional photographer.

My DA Portfolio is here: ericstrijbos.daportfolio.com/ Feedback and comments are welcome.

You can read more about me and my DA works in this Ezine, that was created by stuartperry because one of my photos won the The-Yard-Collective's first Street contest:

BUYING MY WORK
A lot of my work is on sale through the Deviantart Print service, a lot of it isn't. Don't hesitate to contact me if you see a work that's not available for printing, there might be no particular reason for that and I can put it up. Some of the works that are available for print are in need of a different title or will have their frame removed. That will happen sooner or later, but if you don't want to wait, contact me too, I'll put you in the fast lane. :)

Finally, some of my best works are for sale on Redbubble. You might have a look there if you prefer their conditions. Also my works there don't have the black or white frame that's present around many of my pictures.
