I'm back to photographing the streets of Amman. It has been some time since i have gotten a chance to do what i love doing. Hitting the streets with a camera, a roll of film, and hopes of capturing moments that happen in my viewfinder's framelines.
Yesterday i decided to go to Al-Abdali. This is a photo heavy entry.
Watched her cross the street and tried to do some panning action.
He sat there drinking his coffee, i saw the sign which says "king hussein st" , also wanted to get him through the bars.
He sat there smokng a ciggarette, i waited till he put it down, for some reason i was more interested in him just sitting there and watching people walk around.
Looked like a tough guy, waited till he pulled out his lighter.
Maybe one of my favorite from this roll. He was eating ulker pretzel sticks. The combination of that with the coffee on the ground made it for me.
Many small vendors are scattered throughout the place, waited till he gave the old man the money.
I actually made this frame before the one above. Everyone was on their mobiles. I could have done a series on that.
A yemeni man waits for the bus, wonder where he is heading. Yemen? It would be cool to take a bus from Abdali to the mountains of Ibb.
The people and the bus. Again a man on his cell phone. I think i'm going to be doing a series on people carrying stuff. They were looking for a ride to Irbid. One of the station's controllers.
These are all low quality negative scans. I'm about to go back into the darkroom and print some of these. Can't wait to see the results.
All Images were shot on a Leica M6, 50mm Summicron, Ilford Delta 1oo developed in ID-11.
