This week found me traveling from the streets of Northampton to Storrowton Village to a horse show at the Big E Fairgrounds.
I’ll shoot just about anything from close-ups to landscapes to pets and people, but right now I’m really drawn to street photography. British photographer Stephen McLaren defines street photography as “essentially a way of working wherein you have to be utterly open to what happens on the street. So, no props, no models, no setting up of shots, and you always use available light. Then, it’s down to a mixture of happenstance, luck and skill.”
Some street photographers eschew any post-processing. I embrace it as a way to create an artistic rendering of everyday Life.
This week began with 2 days of steady rain. Then Ryan, Alanna and Sammy flew in from Cali giving me a brief window to shoot the Boston waterfront at the blue hour before picking them up at Logan. It didn’t take long for Ry, Sammy and I to head out on the rail trail with our cameras, ending up in the PVRR rail yard. They’ll be with us for the month of June, so I’m looking forward to more photo excursions.
