My flickr contact Alex Newman posted this terrific image from Seminyak beach, Bali taken with his Ricoh GR.

One of the many things that’s outstanding about this image is the framing: both the child and the woman looking in from the edge of the frame. Bleeding or frame violation is a terrific technique and I need to consider it more as I almost never use it in photography while I use it all the time in graphic design work I do.

My flickr contact Alex Newman took this great street image in Varanasi, India with his Fuji X100S.

Here’s an image that cries out planning. No doubt Alex saw the mural and waited patiently until the right kind of contrast moved in front of it.

Sometimes even street photography needs to be slowed down to get shots like this and Alex is a master.
