These guys always seem to be doing the slow and steady. I always burn the candle on both ends over the weekend so Monday is my catch up day for sleep. And there are few things that make sleep easier than a pounding rain. So here is to catching up on some much-needed rest. After I make it through that first workday of the week I’m over the hump. And boy was that first day back a brutal one. But if you could translate duck like I do, you would hear them say that it’s water under the bridge.
Then I sit up and think about the multiple to do list and all the task and pause for a second. But a surge of energy hits me and its back to creating time. Even if it’s just an hour or two a day. If I can squeeze in more during the work week its a huge success. So in that spirit let me post a few photos of what I think I refer people say is “street photography”. This old guy is behind the times at times. But I’m trying to keep up.
Street photography means different things to me. I’m totally comfortable shooting buildings, structures, environment. But people on the street is another thing. So I’m forcing myself to give it a shot.
I’m trying to mix my environmental eye with people included as in the shot above and below. And you know what. I’m enjoying the people part. I try not to be intrusive in any way but I guess taking a picture of anyone could be considered that.
Then sometimes things wander into my field of view that just inspire so many caption possibilities. Like the young man below. I believe he exited one of the nice hotels in Harbor East, walked to the central fountain/statue and did what I see businessman do each day also, look at their phone and put hand to head. So what is it, did his stocks just crash? Did he realize he walked out in his pajamas? Did a girl break his heart and he is headed for the fountain to end it all? Is it someone on Facetime he doesn’t want to talk to? Actually in full disclosure, it was one of those comic con or anime weekends in Baltimore.
Working people are easy to find. Especially if there is a blue-collar attached.
Look out MAN.
