Faces in Frederick MD from Friday afternoon

Leave a comment

Well should say faces and backs. The first gentleman just caught my eye as I was waiting to cross the street and just happened to look to my back left. His concentration and the great reflection of him in the glass makes it look like he is looking through that door he is painting.

The couple walking away, hand in hand was my subject but had to hurry before jogger cut in front of them.

The two outdoor dinning shots were too colorful to pass up.

My favorites are the people on the bench and couple with the dog and grandparents with grandson.

And I can’t leave out the working man and woman. Hence the stone masons and painters.

I’m trying to force myself to do more people photography. I’m overcoming a great anxiety about invading people s privacy.  I know anything goes in public but there are still limits and courtesy’s one should extend. I hope not to catch people in unflattering ways. There are enough Wal-Mart photographers in the world.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
