Winter photos after a frost in Wapello Idaho

I woke up and saw that the fog from the night before had frozen and made everything white. It was a great day for pictures in south Eastern Idaho, so I snagged my camera, a Tripod and took an extra battery.

That said, (and this is why I’ll never take wedding photos,) – after all was said and done, I didn’t take the time to check it, and my camera was taking low res shots the whole morning! Oh well, it’s great for computers, but terrible for printing.

Enjoy, I had fun taking them, it was a beautiful day.

The woman on the left was smiling broadly all along the path through the park, to the 72nd Street subway (you can see that she’s carrying a metrocard in her left hand).

Meanwhile, the two blue-suited guys on the right are part of a nonprofit street-cleaning group called "Ready Willing and Able." I think they were taking their lunch break.

As for the hippie in the middle … I have no idea what he was up to.

***************************

This is the continuation of a photo-project that I began in the summer of 2008: a random collection of "interesting" people in a broad stretch of the Upper West Side of Manhattan — between 72nd Street and 104th Street, especially along Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue.

As I indicated when I started this project in 2008, I don’t like to intrude on people’s privacy, so I normally use a telephoto lens in order to photograph them while they’re still 50-100 feet away from me; but that means I have to continue focusing my attention on the people and activities half a block away, rather than on what’s right in front of me.

I’ve also learned that, in many cases, the opportunities for an interesting picture are very fleeting — literally a matter of a couple of seconds, before the person(s) in question move on, turn away, or stop doing whatever was interesting. So I’ve learned to keep the camera switched on (which contradicts my traditional urge to conserve battery power), and not worry so much about zooming in for a perfectly-framed picture … after all, once the digital image is uploaded to my computer, it’s pretty trivial to crop out the parts unrelated to the main subject.

Thus far, I’ve generally avoided photographing bums, drunks, crazies, and homeless people. There are a few of them around, and they would certainly create some dramatic pictures; but they generally don’t want to be photographed, and I don’t want to feel like I’m taking advantage of them. I’m still looking for opportunities to take some "sympathetic" pictures of such people, which might inspire others to reach out and help them. We’ll see how it goes …

The only other thing I’ve noticed, thus far, is that while there are lots of interesting people to photograph, there are far, far, far more people who are not so interesting. They’re probably fine people, and they might even be more interesting than the ones I’ve photographed … but there was just nothing memorable about them.

Yo! You talkin’ to me? You got a problem?

I saw the older of these kids as I walked past him, on the west side of Broadway at 82nd Street; I really should have taken his picture from directly in front, because he had quite an expressive face. Meanwhile, what I didn’t realize when I finally did take a hurried picture after I walked past him, is that he was carrying on some kind of tense conversation with another, younger, boy that I hadn’t even noticed when I walked past…

This is part of an evolving photo-project, which will probably continue throughout the summer of 2008, and perhaps beyond: a random collection of "interesting" people in a broad stretch of the Upper West Side of Manhattan — between 72nd Street and 104th Street, especially along Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue.

This was taken at the "Arte around the corner" (http://www.artearoundthecorner.com/) restaurent/deli, on Columbus between 72nd and 73rd St. I think this was a mother/son couple, and they were behaving perfectly normally … I walked them going north on Columbus, saw nothing worth photographing, and then turned back south to retrace my steps, and saw this opportunity.

In case you’re interested, by the way, the woman’s hat says "104th US Open". So I guess she’s a tennis fan …

Kid on the street

This young kid was slouched against a fire hydrant on the south side of 96th Street, between Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue. I think he was actually carrying on a conversation with another kid, off to the right of the frame … but your first impression, when looking at him, is that he’s sound asleep…

Note: this photo was published in a Mar 18, 2010 French blog titled "Améliorer l’encadrement des mineurs délinquants."

This guy was sitting all by himself, pretty much alone on the block, between 73rd and 74th Street, on the west side of Amsterdam Avenue. The enormous stone/bricks behind him are part of the massive wall of what used to be the Apple Bank (and before that, the Central Bank for Savings, constructed in 1928; click here for more details), but which has now been transformed into a luxury condo. (Rumor has it that Harry Belafonte lives in this building).

Anyway, this gentleman apparently navigates around the neighborhood on his battery-powered scooter-mobile, and decided that this was a perfectly good place to park for a little while, and read the paper. He paid no attention to me as I strolled by…

Note: this photo was published, in a mashup combination with the face of someone else, in a Jan 14, 2009 Polish blog titled "Zach?cam do korzystania ze zdobyczy najnowszych technologii i zaprenumerowania." It was also published, in a version that cropped off the man’s head, in a Jan 12, 2010 blog titled "Klassische Medien, nicht-klassische Themen: Keine gute Kombination." And it was published in an Apr 25, 2010 blog titled "Practical and Unique Gift Ideas for Disabled Seniors." It was also published in a May 12, 2010 blog titled "Romantic/Unique Gift Ideas." And it was published in a Jul 19, 2010 blog titled "Deranged Old People Demand Right to Survive in NYC."

Moving into 2012, the photo was published in a Dec 14, 2012 Australian blog titled "Disability – an area where health professionals can help!!"

Moving into 2013, the photo was published in a Jan 10, 2013 blog titled "Success Story: Help Getting Around." And it was published in a Mar 12, 2013 blog titled "Police Pull Over ‘Speeding’ Man on Scooter."
