Again in the busy commercial quarter of Gongguang on a rainy evening. The last shot from the same spot. This shot is my favourite of the 3. I really like how the sign covers the man’s face, and how the umbrellas look with the motion blur.

About j.t.l.

I’m a creative minded finnish fellow who is passionate about photography, making music, and traveling among many other things.


  1. really good street shot! thx for sharing!

  2. I’m really liking the blurry people (and their umbrellas) in the bottom left hand corner, it tells of a scene, and of a city that’s alive with possibilities…

    • Thanks for the comment.
      Actually when you said “a city that’s alive with possibilities”, that’s exactly how I see this picture too, just couldn’t put it into words as well as you did. Well said!

      • Thanks! And that’s one of the aspects of street photography that really means a lot to me, when the scene you portray becomes vivid, when you can close your eyes for a second and ‘see’ the scene unfold in front of you…Which you seem to do incredibly well!

      • Yes. Thank you again! It means a lot to me, because I haven’t had the chance to do much of street photography before, so it’s all quite new to me. It’s very rewarding to hear that I’m on the right track.

      • Believe me, it’s all very new to me as well, and a constant learning curve. And you know, it’s easy to know what you like, or what a shot should look like, but it’s so damn difficult to do it like you ‘know’ it should be done – if that makes any kind of sense at all, LOL. Anyway, all the best, and good luck!

      • Yeah, what you said makes sense and I totally know what you mean. Like doing any form of art there is always room for improvement, and in a way you’re never as good as you can be. There are endless styles and techniques to try out and learn. One of the reasons why photography is so much fun. 🙂
        All the best and good luck to you too!
