"slow down... you move too fast..." by 

“…you gotta make the morning last” (Simon & Garfunkel)

caught on King Street, Perth this morning as we waited for the cafe to open

Leica M9, 50mm noctilux f1 lens, ISO 250, f/8, 1/60 sec. Cropped in PS. Converted to b&w in Nik Silver Efex pro.

Feeling satisfied with a new photograph … that makes it a good day.

    You were able to photograph while haven’t had a cup of café yet? You’re stronger than I am for sure amiga!! ;) I love how you caught the interaction between the bicyclist and the pedestrian. Nice timing! Wonderful composition too and the B&W works perfectly here. Lovely Nadine!

  • thanks so much, dear rosa! you’re right – it is amazing I could hold the camera steady when the withdrawal tremors were kicking in! Thanks for your lovely comment, my friend

    Photography is luck, but luck is earned…

  • true – I still had to get up early, have the camera at my eye and be pressing the shutter at that moment. If only I’d been a nanosecond later, I could have got the cyclist in shot but just past the still figure. No wonder people end up setting the shot up! Thanks again, my friend!

    Great capture Nadine, I’ve been wanting to capture this iconic cafe for ages but I can’t seem to get up early enough :), and what would a cafe shot be without a lycra clad cyclist nearby :), wonderful work my friend

  • thanks for that lovely comment, jus! it’s partly due to your choice of challenge for the 50mm group that I’ve been having such fun with street photography lately :)
