This was one of my favorite photos for years. It is a picture of a street performer taken in Seattle in 1992. This was during a time I felt as though my photographic style was first starting to come into focus. I still look at this photo often to help myself consider what it is that I am trying to capture in others when I take their picture.
My girlfriend, Summer, really liked this picture, so I thought I would put it up for the 11th of November. Even though fall has over a month to go it seems pretty much over to me already. This photo was taken about 5 weeks ago. I’m sure most of those trees are bare by now. I think that this will be the last photo from my East Coast trip that I will put up for a while. There will be more in the future, but right now I feel like moving on to something else.
Here is a fisheye view of the NY skyline and the East River from atop the Brooklyn Bridge taken recently while on an East Coast trip. You can see me close to the center of the picture holding the tripod steady in the wind.
Here is a self portrait I took digitally a couple of hours ago. It’s been a rough week.
