I like arriving a little early to a location for a shoot. I enjoy having the few minutes to just relax and be ready. Saturday I had a session and arrived a bit earlier than I normally do so while I was sitting in the car I noticed the contrast of the building across the street from me and the beautiful clear sky.
I realized it was a really pretty corner. So I decided that every time someone walked past this pretty little corner I would take a picture. A sort of stationary street photography, if you will. My daughter who was with me seemed to think this was kinda creepy but I’m guessing my fellow photographers would totally understand.
If I get the opportunity I believe I just might park at some other random corner and take pictures of the street scenes that pass my way.
I realize that what originally drew my eye, as I mentioned, were the sharp angles of the building contrasting against the blue sky and three of the four images I am sharing are black and white but they just lent themselves so nicely to the colorless documentary look.
I did get one shot in color that I just loved. Her coat is just something extra, isn’t it? I love it.
