A most intriguing shot from Exposed DC photography show alum Blink Ofanaye. Instead of trying to interpret the image, I think the Flickr tags assigned to it by our photographer sum it up rather nicely: peacocks, home, beautiful, house, quaint, queer, decor, woman, magnifying glass.
There are several wonderfully absurd things about this photograph. First is the ICEE bear, positioned exactly in the frame to look as if he is really handing that drink to the photographer. The second is the person, almost the same size as the bear, but their top half is taken over by the plant. When you add in the bold colors of the food stand, the plant, the bear sign and the shoes of the person we can’t fully see, this image is a summer winner.
Shooting weddings can be a lot of fun, particularly when you’re not the official wedding photographer. It seems likely that Robb Hohman was playing the role of guest when he snapped this vibrant candid shot of two fellow revelers engaging in the usual kinds of reception shenanigans. This pricelessly evocative image was captured on film using a Voigtlander Bessa-R3A rangefinder.
