October 2006 / by Let It Be Raw

In October, I went to San Francisco with the Bablinskai brothers. I spent the time following them around with a camera and making them pose for me in antique stores. Framing became of an even greater importance, and I began to pay more attention not only to the subject or portrait, but of the back ground and depth of field. The picture below of the brothers walking down the street is one of my favorites. There is a visible connection between the brothers, so they are not random people walking down the street. The buildings and telephone poles give the effect of convergence that draws the eyes to the socialist book store sign as well as the action of the Bablinskai.
