    ‘take me to the other side’ and ‘brando at the roxy’ both tell an entire story and raise lots of questions at the same time, really nice this.

    Thanks Eric for counting me in. I really appreciate. And thanks Larry for your kind comment.

    My personal favorite in this set is the picture by Lionel Lecocq. An intense character, all the information to situate the picture (cuban flag in the car, cigar, etc…) and beautiful colors. Great job!

    Hmmm .. interesting shots yes .. but maybe too much emphasis on portraiture and too little on “situations” or “moments”, for them to be representing street photography in general.

  • Juergen Buergin

    I love that b Lionel Lecocq most… Real funny and cool! :-)

  • Tommy N. Armansyah

    Victor Lumunon, the guy who shot the above “Market administrator, have passed away on May 17, 2011. May he rest in peace.

    What i don’t understood is in reality how you’re no longer really a lot
    more neatly-favored than you may be right now.
    You are so intelligent. You understand therefore significantly in terms of this matter, made me
    for my part believe it from a lot of numerous angles. Its like men and women are not fascinated until it’s something to
    do with Girl gaga! Your personal stuffs nice.

    Always take care of it up!
