Barrel Woman Eats Lunch

What can I say? I was on vacation and just went crazy. Crazy! Look at what I did?! I took a photo of this woman, just because I could. And also because it looked like she was sitting in that barrel to eat lunch.

Or maybe she actually was in the barrel – maybe that’s one of those regionally-specific things people do in that part of the country.

Bar Fly

Here’s a street scene from a recent Sunday morning in downtown Minneapolis. I am sure the last of the night’s patrons hadn’t been gone all that long when I went by.

The Posers

What’s happening? Yesterday my post had a half of a person in it, and today there are two whole people. Wow. Believe me, I am as surprised by this as you are.

I sat in this spot for a while, watching a steady stream of people perch on that stone ledge to have their photo taken. Most of them were in poses similar to the one here, which made me start to wonder how they all know that’s The One Right Way To Sit – is there a guidebook or something?

But these two had an added value, of a sort, with the photo-taker also striking a pose.

City in the sky: Cloud Gate

My favorite time to photograph the famous Cloud Gate sculpture in Chicago is when the light and sky are just right and the edges of the sculpture blur into the sky. Like this.

Also: look! A person!

the quest for perfection

I guess I’m sidling my way into being a street photographer?
