The Lonely Road of Life II

The Lonely Road of Life II - Alapan San Francisco Street Photography Chinatown Leica M6

Yes it’s the same lady that I photographed before. Leica M6 with Fuji Neopan 100SS.

POTD: oldcar_1 from my buddy Revy who has the eye but doesn’t use his camera as much as I think he should.

  1. Although this shot is excellent, it feels depressing to me.

  2. I agree Tom. As I mentioned in the previous post, she’s usually by herself, just standing/sitting around. This is from a different day but she’s wearing the same clothing. Just yesterday I saw her standing in the exact same spot as this photo.

  3. yeah, sometimes you feel depressed when shooting homeless people, maybe because you feel like you shouldn’t or it’s somehow making fun of them, but your job as a photographer is to record. it’s a very nice image.

    you may not know, but polaroid is ceasing production on all of their film. by the end of next year, it’ll be all gone.

    they are looking for someone to purchase the rights to make the film, however, which i think has a strong chance of happening since there are about 30 million of us out there that use the film.

    so there’s a petition now that will hopefully do one of two things:

    make polaroid corporate reverse their decision (probably not) or make a smaller specialty company realize there is a market for polaroid film (possible).

    but we need signatures. lots of signatures.

    help keep this art form alive and prosperous for years to come!
