Street Moments From Orlando by Brian Green

I was staying down in Orlando Florida for the month of May and I was more active going out and doing my street work. Here is some of the work I shot while staying down there.  Its a shame out of anywhere I shoot i have the most negative run-ins in Florida, Face it people/police if im in a public space your at the will of my camera.

oh look a installation piece by Brian Green

While i was in Miami this week to do some street photography i just so happens it was the same week they were hosting Art Basel which is an amazing support of art but on the flip side of the coin brings out a lot of self entitled people. While walking along the galleries the first night there was a homeless guy sleeping sitting up near a tree and out of no where this girl comes running up with her designer shoes and bag talking talking "I should Instagram him that would be so funny, Oh look a installation piece" so while she was occupied with her phone i decided to pull out my little canon point and shoot that i had loaded a roll of Kodak Bw400cn in and take a photo. For a photo taken at night with a cheap camera and obnoxious flash i am pretty happy with how it turned out. It is sad the way some people act to say the least.

Here is another photo i took during the trip. The officer is walking up to the car because the person just got out of their car to confront the person behind them for honking their car horn.

Trip To Miami by Brian Green

I got home last night from a little two day trip to Miami with my buddy Clay. It was not as packed as i thought it would be but people were still as impatient as ever so no worries.

Here are some images i took along the trip, I have a roll Kodak bw400Cn to still get developed but this is most of what i shot.

Aside from taking photos i took some video to document the trip below is a little vlog featuring the footage and some music i made from sounds collected in Miami.

From The Past Week by Brian Green

While packing my bag for some shooting this week i figured i would post some stuff not in my gallery. Here is some stuff that i have shot throughout this week.

Future America, Blacks Not Included by Brian Green

While downtown this afternoon i met this homeless gentleman, Alexander Coleman.

He was a very upbeat and cheerful guy, Just what i needed for a dark and cloudy day.

We spoke for a little bit and he told me about a book he was working on while living under a bridge up the road the book is to be titled "Future America, Blacks Not Included". When done talking i asked if he would mind me taking a photo or two of him and he said that it was fine after i showed him some prints i had in my bag.

Dump Truck Struck By Miami-Bound Amtrak Train by Brian Green

I was taking photos downtown today like every other normal day and i decided to grab some lunch, While eating the news came on that a dump truck was struck by a Amtrak train headed to Miami only a few miles away so i packed up my camera stuff and rushed to hop in my car to see what was going on.

I got onto the tracks and walked as close as i could get to snap a few photos before leaving the scene. The driver of the dump truck is the only one who had fatal injuries.

Keith (Speedy) + Carl Moore by Brian Green

I spend around 5 hours this morning roaming the streets of downtown Orlando again. Right after i parked my car i ran into this guy Keith or Speedy as hes known by everyone on the streets, He instantly busted into pose and said i could take his photo if i wanted i decided to go sit with him and chat for a bit while he waiting to catch a buss.

After he got on the bus i went back to walking up and down streets like i do most morning and i ran into another guy while leaving a 7 Eleven, His name was Carl I offered him a smoke and sat to talk with him. We talked for awhile about both of our travels and what it was like living on the streets and such i seen some beer in his cart and i offered to grab him two more if he would let me shoot him some he said i was more than welcome to photograph him ether way but of course he would not turn down beer. We ended up talking more than anything else.

I am really glad i am able to meet these people that do not seem to take a single thing for granted.

Downtown Orlando Suicide by Brian Green

When i was out shooting this morning i was trying to take a photo of a bike cop writing a ticket, I seen him go around to corner about two streets ahead of me so i thought i would try to cut him off by going down the street between us. I heard a loud thud as i was walking around the corner of a building and to my surprise there was a body laying there. A lady jumped out of a parking garage and fell through the awning of the building below and then hit the pavement. Not even a minute or two after i had made it around the corner a bunch of cops showed up and i just started shooting.

The detective on the scene told me she would take my camera as evidence if i continued to keep shooting, I informed her i was well within my rights and finished my work.
