From Willamette View: Looking at Some of My Favorite Photos

Some of my favorite photographs.

When it comes to taking pictures my primary interest is in street photography, that is, catching people going about their lives in ways that I (and hopefully others) will find interesting. I like these photos to tell a story. Sometimes chance and luck plays a big part in street photography. A photo of the delighted and delightful Korean street performers (below at The Fringe Festival in Scotland, current website) is a good example. Another example of chance and luck is the photo of the presumably homeless man at Union Station in Washington D.C. I'd first photographed him alone, but then tried to add a passerby to the photo. It was the luck of the low shutter speed that caused the woman to be blurred, resulting in a photo that led to the title "Invisible Man" creating the sense of a rushed commuter ignoring one of Washington's many homeless people.

This is in Boston. The first is the better photo 
because the young man is giving me the evil eye. I like the man's t-shirt and the very prominent police officer's gun.  The man in the doorway adds to the story as he watches the police. The
second photo gives context to the first.

Below: more police, this time in D.C. Residents are going about their daily 
routine  ignoring this man's plight even with four or five police officers in on this arrest.
