Rainy day

I love shooting on rainy days.  It is a little more difficult as you have to keep the camera and lens dry, but using a compact camera and shooting from doorways or overhangs, you can manage to get some very nice shots.

Taking a break

Such a nice day to find a bench and people watch or just take in the streets.

Protest in the streets

All kinds of activity take part on the streets.  In this case, a protest.


Downtown Burlington Vermont has a lot of outdoor cafes and they can make for interesting photos.

There are so many different reasons to be out on the street.  This girl was sitting on this bench waiting.  What was she thinking about?  She seems sad, in heavy thought.  The streets are full of emotion.  Capturing that emotion in a photograph is the prize of the street photographer.

This is an older photo from 1991.

Taking a break

You never know what scene will unfold before you on the street.  This one was just interesting.


When shooting on the street, I am always looking for something to happen between people.  Expressions, actions, something unexpected.  The decisive moment if you will.

I found this shot interesting.  Two people sharing a space, a rock to rest on, but both unaware of the other as they rest here on this rock on a busy street.

Trumpet Player

I have decided to do a blog dedicated to street photography. My first few posts, hopefully I will keep this up.

The street has a thousand voices, a thousand moods, a thousand rhythms. The full range of human emotion is on display on the streets of our cities, from joy to anguish to diffidence to despair, if we only slow down long enough to look for them.
This is my first post on a brand new blog.
