Images & Words #143 - Candid/Street Life

Hi Friends, 

Mia here, having the honor of hosting this fine weekend!
For a theme this time we are going to post a Candid/Street-Life.
(See this link if you don't feel too sure what it means

Here is mine:

Sing To Us Again

Sing to us softly, hum evening's song. Point the way to better days we can share with you.

 Each week we will post an original photo with words on it. The idea behind this group is to expand our minds through our photography.Photos must be your own, but the words can be someone else's as long as credit is given after the words. Your post can either be serious, or if you'd like comical, but never obscene .Posts can either have one word on them,quotes, or full poems ... Your choice.All posts are to be done on your own site in a blog form with a link back to it being left here. See the example below in the blog titled Test Run.New topics will be posted on Sundays.Posts can be made through Saturday.One post per person only please. 

Have fun and I'll visit you soon!



  1. A Fantastic theme Mia and a fabulous photo. I like your words....great song Too!

  2. Oh this will be fun, now to get some time off and shoot it. Soon come, I hope.

  3. there is no info at the link you provided, Mia

  4. Interesting theme. Will be back later. Like the photo, really shows a lot going on. Most of my photos are candid shots, my favorite type to do.

  5. Greetings All !
    It's candid ( which represents most all my shots) but not 'street candid'

  6. Thanks LInda, it was taken at our nearest village when we had a kebab for lunch.
    The guy with the mic is actually a doll! lol

    Sorry about the link, nothing seems to work the way it should on MP tonight.
    Try this one

  7. Here's my own entry:

    It's 3.30 am here, so I'm off to bed. So tired of glitchy Multiply. I'll see you all tomorrow. Have fun!

  8. Wonderful capture, Mia! The couple in the foreground look so chiseled, almost as statuesque as the Blues Brother! This will be a fun theme. I'm going out to China town in a few minutes to photograph the New Year parade. I'll be back soon with something suitable, I hope.

  9. hmmm....brings me right back here to all the comments with no links in them...

  10. Way to awesome Mia.....Wow factor of 10 !!!!

  11. Fun Theme, Thanks Mia~!!
    Wow,, That "John Belushi" doll? .. looks real.
    Good Job editing.

  12. Thanks Weenie, yes it is, and the music I wanted with it wouldn't show so here's the link

  13. I Love that movie and that is my favourite part of it. The guy that was after the Blues Brothers is Charles Napier,. He was My 8th grade History teacher. He just recently passed away at the age of 75.
    I have watched the movie a thousand times.

  14. Mia that is just an wonderful photo.
    I love your editing. Fabulous!!!!!!! You made me want to try one.
    The black and white really fits. Wow!
    You asked for it. Mine isn't exactly candid.

  15. Oh that's so cool Weenie, sorry he's passed!
    Can't see your entry as se to private?

  16. Weenie you are set to private.

  17. Oh My Goodness.~!!!...
    I just found that my door was locked.
    Thanks Sue, Lady Callie and Mia~!!
    It's open Now~!!

  18. Cool picture. I can honestly say though, that this is THE HARDEST topic I've seen yet! haha I really didn't have anything to choose from. I don't take pictures of people that I don't know since I wouldn't want anyone I didn't know to take a picture of me. Finally found one though!

  19. love the theme, Mia

    Seeing is not enough. You have to go down the street, wait five minutes or walk hundred feet, and you will find a composition or an expression that the street offers us :)

    here is my 'entries' :)

  20. This is superb Mia, I Love it.
    The "Dummy" on the microphone looks like a friend of mine, mmmmm
    Here's mine.
