Chronicles from the street #5

Nobody seemed to notice. People were absorbed in their own thoughts; those masks, more than covering mouths and noses, seemed to blindfold the passers-by.
Yes, they increase the sense of hiding from one another. I hope you and family are keeping well and safe Domenico.

Another great b&w shot with a great composition, light

thats a shame - I've noticed this too - you can't smile at people behind the mask - they keep their head down - nice photojournalistic photo

Powerful!

Even without mask, the distance has the same effect! I try to get eye contact with people and give them a smile, most times I get a smile back!

Great candid shot

we are a strange species

Wonderful candid -- an image for our times.

Oh Domenico, I LOVE this for the storytelling of our times! I noticed that you took it on April 2 but posted it for March 15. Would you consider moving it to the date you took it *even in an alternate album, so you could enter it in the street photography challenge I'm hosting (I have no idea how that happened that I'm hosting it but it's for photos taken between March 22 - April 21, I think.

This is superb - the composition, processing, story telling...
April 5th, 2020  
so well composed with the lines straight to the frame...

This is an excellent photo. You have captured the moment in time, and history, very well. It tells a story and capture a moment in this man's life, as well as society's.

Such a melancholy lonely feel

Same as Jane. @jgpittenger

If I don't look things will be the same as before...

@helenhall We are. Hiding at home, all day long sitting in front of the screen... but it wouldn’t be much better in office, would it?
@seattlite Thank you very much, Gloria!
@pdulis Yes! You can’t smile at people behind a mask. Too bad. Thank you!
@wag864 Thank you very much!
@angelikavr True, if you get to eye-contact them...
@bkbinthecity Thank you, Brian, hope you are well!
@overalvandaan We are, indeed!
@taffy Thank you very much. And yes, it is so very an everyday sight. And sigh...
@jyokota Thank you so much, Junko. Will do. Maybe I’ll repost in the “sideways” album.
@graemestevens Thank you so much, Graeme!
@kali66 Thanks a lot, Kali. Sometimes shooting from the hip, looking on the screen instead of the viewfinder helps!
@mbrutus Too kind of you, Mr. B.! It’s our life, as a matter of fact.
@jgpittenger @golftragic Notwithstanding the harsh sunlight. Isn’t it paradoxical?
@vignouse I believe so, too, Richard. It’s kind of a war. Hopefully, the post-war will be more like after WWII than after WWI...

Another great street shot. Here in The Netherlands I find that people are more considerate than normally, pausing to give way, giving a friendly nod as way of a thank you. Might be because my region is hard-hit in this crisis.

This image speaks volumes. I love the timelessness of the b&w, really suits the subject. Stay well, think of you whenever Italy is mentioned.

@leonbuys83 Thank you very much, Leon. It’s a learning curve with people, these days...
@featherstone26 Thank you very much, Sue. Thoughts reciprocated!
