Doing my morning trawl through the social media sites, exploring what’s important to the people (and not the mainstream media), two things have caught my eye today: the first is an interview blog post by The Weekly Minute who features the photographer Jessica Laforet and her 100 portraits challenge; the second is the YouTube clip ‘How Does A Homeless Man Spend $100?‘ that I came across on Facebook. Both of these, in different ways, forced me to think about how, being a shy and retiring type in the real world, I avoid photographing people. Well, as the weather warms up and more people are aboard (in the Shakespearean sense), I think it will soon be time to address this. I just need to think about it for a while. These are some candid shots I took last year (mostly on the iPhone held at the hip) and now, I want to do some more, less covert ones.
