Lisa and I went to D.C. a while back. It was so much fun. I have so much more to share but for this month's Living in the Moment post I wanted to share my try at "street photography". Some of these are ehhhhhh and some of them really impress me.
Sites like the FB pages Humans of New York and Portraits of Boston are inspiring to me because it's something I could never do. I could never go up to a stranger, have a conversation with them and then ask to take their picture. I'm so very shy.
Most of these were take from the trolley or the car. All of them were taken with my stalker lens so that none of these people knew I was taking their picture. Someday I hope to visit the city and do more street photography. It really moves me.
We saw quite a few homeless people sleeping in the city. We even saw a woman dying her hair in Freedom Plaza. During our trolley tour we had to take a detour due to traffic and our guide told us that the shelter we past was the largest in the country.
That sweat stain, yuck.
I know this is grainy and gross but Lisa and I came out of a hotel after drinks and there were multiple couples in Freedom Plaza doing the tango. It was by far one of the coolest things I've ever seen. I looked it up and something came up on Yelp for it saying it was free classes.
It was Pride week while were there. I wish I could have gotten a better shot of her but I love that I got the guy taking their picture in there.
He is just too cool for words....
I loved her suit. It was just so awesome in all the black and grey.
I adore this man peeking out of his flower shop.
I think these last two are my favorites. They look like they could be camera ads. These were taken at the Lincoln memorial.
Which was your favorite? Do you love or hate street photography? Find it inspiring or creepy?
