Him

I just like this guy. Sitting so serenely as I entered the subway this morning on my way home from dropping Lily at school. This time I didn’t have to sneak peak! I stepped out of my comfort zone asking if he minded if I take his photo. He kindly obliged ☺ Win!

  6. I often look at people on public transport and wonder who they are, where they are going, what they are thinking about…. Hey, there you are, that’s your next mission!

    I need that courage to do just that. I think it works better for women. Ahihihi 😀 Kudos for braving it up! 🙂

    There’s a skateboard park that I’ve been wanting to visit to take some pictures, but I just haven’t gone yet… Perhaps your story will give me the… courage?

      I hope you do! Why not. It’s there for you ☺ if in some small way I’ve inspired you to do so, I’m honoured.

        Kids aren’t as self-conscious about having their photo taken, so that would be a plus. But I was thinking that it might be a little creepy for an old lady to go hang out and take pictures of kids… mostly young boys. What do you think?

          If you’re concerned, if I were you I would ask them if they mind ☺ no harm in that.

            I don’t think the kids would mind, it’s what other adults would think… you know, get the wrong impression. I dunno, maybe I’ll stick with birds, trees, clouds and mountains — they don’t move. 🙂

              I wouldn’t concern yourself with what other people think. If someone has an issue with it, their problem. And if their nervy enough to ask, you can say “I’m a street photographer” 😉

                I would have trouble being able to keep myself from busting out laughing if I tried to describe myself as a photographer…

                For me, digital photography is just a type of free entertainment (along with a distraction from chronic pain). I’m not really interested in taking photos without using the “automatic” function — pretty soon, I’d want fancy (and expensive) telephoto lenses, and a stand for taking shots at night… A slippery slope, my friend 🙂

    Wonderful image. Most ‘crowds’…individuals in those crowds…crammed together…test their comfort zone…I would think. What is lovely here is the ‘space’…to just sit and feel less pressed upon by bodies and energies.
