Anyway, here's some shots from my week. Nothing exciting, but it's a start.
While out on a bike ride this week, I passed the restaurant where Sue, and Mom and I had lunch when I was down for my interviews in April. It's when Sue and I decided that we could definitely like to live in the city. And it's also where my favorite waitress works (Penny). I saw a guy walking in with his kids.. Looked like a good subject.
|C'mon Kids! This is way better than Disney World..|
On that same bike ride, I couldn't find many people out. So I went up on a parking garage and looked down over the Harris Teeter parking lot. Finally saw this woman frantically searching for her keys. And the sign "Don't Forget..." seemed appropriate. The little kid in the sports car shopping cart spotted me, so I moved away. Didn't want them to think I was a sniper. She found her keys by the way.

The next night, we went to see Keith Urban-one of Sue's favorites. Not my kind of music, but I'll admit that he is a great guitar player and puts on an awesome show. And we had 4th row seats right in the middle...And undercover...And it didn't rain...

Sunday, Sue and I went to the farmers market. Brought my camera and tried some candid shooting. That's part of the fun of street shooting-get the shot and be discreet. I just kept my camera at my side on auto-focus and took my chances. Got this shot of some folks chatting.
I also looked at a book by Ansel Adams this week. And one thing I noticed was the names of his pictures. Something I struggle with is coming up with a name for my shots. But it's something that you really need to do. Some of his shots were named so simply. Like 'Stump and dirt", (not a real name of his stuff, but something similar). So I'm going to make a point of naming all my shots and trying not to over-think things.
Hey, I hit 100 likes on Face book this week. Going to have to have a give-away to mark this occasion, so my thinking cap is on. And anyone who has like my page will be in the running. SO stay tuned!
Have an AWESOME week folks!
