All Around Us

October 13, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Time to get back to street photography ramblings and images. It's been a long time since my last post. 26,000 miles on a motorcycle to be exact. I put the camera away and just enjoyed the solitude of the western United States on the back of a bike.

Like a lot of you who practice in photography I can find the "pressure" of trying to produce images fatiguing. Sometimes you need to take a break and start fresh.

I'm happy I did. I'm back to making images that feel fresh, real, and instinctive. I hope you agree.

All of Us, All Around Us, Liberty Island Ferry A beautiful summer day. The folks are waiting in line to return to Manhattan after visiting the Statue of Liberty.

"All of Us, All Around Us" 

My new mantra is "find the unusual" view to photograph.

I have noted that some of my favorite images utilize a 'keyhole" of some sort to photograph through.

An amazing number of natural and man made objects are there for us to frame our shots, and give an unusual and fresh perspective.  

These folks are lining up for the ferry to return to Manhattan after visiting the Statue of Liberty, photographed through the ferry window frame.
