A look through the lens of a global nomad

B&W photos from the streets of Amman in Ramadan – Fuji X-Pro 1

As promised here is the continuation of yesterday’s blog post, but this time the photos posted are in black and white, which tends to be my preference for this type of photography, yet the X-Pro 1 has been pushing me to shoot a bit more in color and look at things differently. The photos were shot in Amman during the month of Ramadan, and the b&w conversions are all done in SilverEfx Pro.

It seems more people tend to read in Ramadan, its natural to see more people read the Quran

While others read the newspapers

Cellphones have come up as a recurrent theme in the past post and this one

Sleep is another recurring theme…some sleep at night

While others doze off during the day

I think if i waited a bit more he would have fallen asleep too

Youthful energy

Trying to get a point across…Arabs and Italians share the hand gestures

Unloading sugar cane

The mess left by fruit and vegetable vendors at the Abdali market

Late night Ka’aak sandwiches

I’ve also been using the panoramic option on the X-Pro 1 and it constantly surprises me, the next post will feature images shot with that feature….till then, Peace.
