Football was on her mind

Multitasking was the deal that night. I stopped at the bar at the Holland Hotel, where I was able to get a window table. While I enjoyed a drink and dinner, I made a series of images of pedestrians. Yes! Three things at once.

But, as you could have predicted, doing all that stuff at once is a guarantee that at least one of them is probably not going to be all that successful. And this is the only pedestrian photo I liked. But I like it at a lot because of the way the TV’s reflection landed on the woman’s head.

Street Rhythm

A side street in downtown Bryan seems plain, but if you look at it long enough the subtle complexities start to show up. Like the rhythm of the parking-space lines. The pair of downspouts bracketing the door. The paired up bench and trash can. The street light’s shadow. A bit of graffiti. A wavy bit of wire hanging from the wall. The line that crosses the street and heads straight to the door.

And so on.

Beauty

I’m not making any social commentary here; I would have photographed ANYBODY who was standing under that sign.

The Traveler

On that same field trip to Union Station, I tried a few images with people in them. I was led astray by a number of my fellow students, who were accomplished street photographers. Peer pressure can be a terrible thing…

English Spoken

To be clear, even though English was spoken I did not eat at the Subway sandwich shop while I was in Paris. Also, I did not go to the Chicken Spot there on the other side of the street.
