Street Portrait

When you look at a person, any person, remember that everyone has a story. Everyone has gone through something that has changed them.

I’ve been watching the show Abstract on Netflix, and just finished the segment on the photographer Platon. All I can say is “WOW.” His work is so incredible. It really reignited my passion for photography.

Since I was already in do-over mode, I went back to a photograph that I posted in 2016. It was the first time, and one of the rare times, that I attempted “candid street photography.” Since the photograph was so unplanned and raw, I wanted to go back to it and focus on the man’s face, add some paint strokes to soften it, and make the portrait seem more up-close & personal.

It doesn’t exactly shout Happy Saturday, but “Happy Saturday” nonetheless!

Peace & Love—


  1. I love abstract art, and typically head for that section in any art museum I’ve visited. Abstract photographs are so creative. You get to introduce an audience to your perspective of a face, place, or item. Very cool. Thanks for sharing. Happy Monday!
