Walks Of Life
I had a few minutes to spare yesterday morning in Minneapolis so I decided to find an interesting background and stand for 15 minutes to photograph people walking by. I chose this empty store front for two reasons. I like the reflections in the glass and I could position myself in the middle in order to hide my own reflection. I was standing about 3 meters (10 ft) from the wall with my Fuji x100s which is equipped with a 23mm (35mm equiv.) focal length lens . I was fairly close to the people walking by and some actually ducked thinking I was photographing the wall. Others were busy with their mobile phones, their children or their own thoughts and walked by without noticing me. I could have stood there all day, people’s expressions and demeanors fascinate me and I love to see it all through my lens. Try it!
