A Simple Rose by mikegifford

A Simple Rose

I played with numerous edits and textures with this rose and every time came back to this version for its simplicity.

View large on black if you have time!
Stunning!

You really do have some amazing editing skills. Anyhow, for your challenge this week I would like you to have a look at a project called The Salaryman by a French photographer called Bruno Quinquet.
http://www.brunoquinquet.com/en/salaryman%20project/web%20archive/2011/sman1126.html

He lives in Tokyo and through this project he explores the legal issues surrounding candid street photography in Japan and France.
I would like you to imitate his style this week and capture some elusive candid street shots without the person being directly recognisable e.g. reflection, shadow, blurring, smoke etc

Good luck!
