jaialai

As always, if you have questions, objections, worries or praise, and especially if you found your picture and want it removed, feel free to contact me. I will get back to you as soon as possible. You can also read my full disclaimer, if you are interested.

 

The neighbourhood that I have been exploring recently has the very strange name Jaialai. As you can see in the pictures, it’s not exactly the liveliest of neighbourhoods. So, although I post these pictures in the category street photography, it is clearly the kind of street photography that documents the traces of human beings rather than the human beings themselves. At least it gave me an opportunity to practice my composition skills. Since I normally shoot from the hip, composition tends to be more of an afterthought for me. And did I mention that I really like the tonality that the new agitation scheme produces? Great tonality, very little grain. Definitely a keeper.

All pictures taken with: Zorki 4K and Jupiter 12 35mm f/2.8.
Kentmere 400 developed in Tetenal Ultrafin 1:20, 16min [30s-5s-30s].

    No.3 is impressive
    I like No.5 and as a study No. 8 is interesting to me.
    No.9 hac a nice focus.
    An theres a liitle story following No. 5 to No. 17 to No. 20.

    The Fastest Game in the World – Jai-Alai
    So you see, Lilly, it has a Basque connection, hence isn’t all that strange at all !

      Ah, thanks for the insight, Subroto! I knew the game, but didn’t know what it was called, hence the confusion. Why call a neighbourhood after a game though? Still somehow strange!
