The more I scrolled down the more I laughed not because I was mocking these idols but because have of these things I can relate to. We all have our craving, though Busta Rhymes is a lil creepy, I don’t want to know why he would need condoms while eating, but that’s what calms him down. These are their comfort foods. Their childhood favorite, even something they can’t have on a regular basis and now a GOLDEN door of opportunity has opened up for them. Foo Fighters is one that really had me crying, because just looking at something like that I feel sorry for those “self-conscious” men out there.
It’s amazing and unique how Walker Evans came up with an idea of hiding the camera under his coat to capture people in the subway lost in their own thoughts and moods. It’s interesting to think about different people’s everyday routines, where they all go, what they do and who they are. Evans made a good decision keeping everyday commuters unaware of him taking photographs because when we all see a camera we naturally pose hiding our true face expressions and this would ruin the whole point of his style of photography. Walker Evans managed to capture the passengers on the NYC subway minding their own business in these unguarded moments, displaying a range of human emotions. He has created unposed portraits.
I’m my opinion, not much has changed from the time Evans took these photographs. Nowadays, the majority travels in the subway train with the same face expression which usually makes others feel like they don’t want to be bothered. We all use the subway rushing to get to our destinations, at the same time unwittingly people-watching.
In this photo I took a a picture, during the week I was chef, of us making our very own whip cream. It was fascinating the way we took heavy cream and just mixed it (whipped it) for a couple of minutes and added some other things to make it sweet, and viola you have whip cream. The smell, especially the texture I had to capture the moment, surprisingly this was taken while the whip was moving, I’m not too sure how I did it, but I’m shocked by what I captured. The texture of the whip cream looks fluffy, and smooth, but also though its airy, from in this picture it looks as if it would have a play-doh feel once you get it in your hands.
