Bikon and Self Portrait

I could not resist putting myself in this snapshot. To tell the truth, it was nearly impossible to keep the camera shadow out of the shot. However, a good photograph is in part, about photography, about the photographer and of course, about the subject. In portraiture, there is interaction between the photographer and the person being photographed. Street photography is about interesting juxtapositions, ‘decisive moments’ (to borrow a phrase from Henri Cartier-Bresson), architectural and natural phenomena in an urban setting.

The photograph below is part of my Bikon series (see Pre-Bikon Pavement Sign, Bikon on Green Field), in which I document the street-level indicators of bicycle lanes on city streets.
