Never Leave Home Without A Camera
I wasn’t out to take pictures this morning but I happened to be in the North Loop neighborhood in Minneapolis and I had a few minutes before my parking meter ran out. When I am not on a photo walk I usually throw an old camera with a 50mm in my bag, it’s light and it’s there in case I need it. Shooting with a 50 mm is challenging because you have to use your feet for zooming. I enjoy the challenge and the limitation, it makes you slow down and think about composition more.
You know I love street photography and I enjoy finding a stage and waiting for the action to take place. I did not have to wait too long in front of the motorcycle dealership to get some interesting people and gestures in my frame.
Then I saw those two painters working on each end of this symmetrical building and I found the scene amusing…
Never leave home without a camera and, if you still have 15 minutes in the parking meter, take a walk around the block and see the world around you!
