The Great Gate - Hampton Court Palace - UK2016-148
by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

Hampton Court Palace is a royal palace in the borough of Richmond upon Thames, south-west and upstream of central London on the River Thames. The building of the palace began in 1515 for Cardinal Thomas Wolsey, a favourite of King Henry VIII. In 1529, as Wolsey fell from favour, the cardinal gave the palace to the King to check his disgrace; Henry VIII later enlarged it. Along with St James's Palace, it is one of only two surviving palaces out of the many owned by King Henry VIII.

I spotted this fellow as we were leaving a restaurant with some take-out food. The similarity between the background and his jacket and toque colour caught my eye and I hastily fired off a few frames.
If you want to believe I timed it so that the white graffiti paint appears to be steam coming off of his head, you go right ahead. I can neither confirm nor deny.
I will say, though, that I had to crop a lot since he was a bit far away and my camera has a 35 equiv lens. I was happy that I had a 26mp file to work with and would appreciate even more mp.

I know this may sound dumb, but wanted to share.

So, one of my favorite things is street photography. Capturing the scenes as well as looking at what others have captured.
Early on in my forum viewing days, I used to look at the street images and who took them. I soon realized that I biased toward to the ones I liked because of the people that took them and not purely on the image itself (both emotional response and technical merit).

To keep myself from that "I'm going to like this one because my 'friend' took it" syndrome, I now scroll through an entire page - only looking at the image and responding to it on the merits of the image alone before going back and seeing who took it.

I like how sometimes I can tell who took it by the style in which it was captured and other times I'm shocked or surprised (normally in a good way) at who took some different ones too.

Anyone else go into the view "blind"? And yes, I know I'm weird. :)

Not weird at all Andrew, after all in the camera clubs I've been a member of competition entries are judged blind, and yes you can sometimes recognise a style, and at other times you do get surprised. Your approach is objective and unbiassed, good idea.

Yes, I also make it a point not to look at who shot a photograph when evaluating it. Same with viewing my feed on Instagram.

This was an unanticipated grab shot. The guy bent down to look in the guitar case when I was about 6 feet away and about to walk past them. I quickly flicked the camera on and fired off a few frames, using the rear screen to frame the shot. The 35 equiv FoV was a bit too tight. I'm appreciating the X100V's high ISO performance because it allows me to shoot at 1/400s in less than ideal light which is what I need to eliminate camera blur due to me walking while taking the shot.
