Photo by myself near Union Square, on University Place and 13th Street.
If this gentleman were walking toward me, he'd have one of those black bars across his face, as a 'fashion don't'!
Alas, you can't police everything.
Looking through my photos each night, I've been stumped, recently. Nothing seems to excite me.
'Post something with people,' Mark says. 'People like looking at people.'
So I turn from the architectural shots and close ups, and try to find something halfway decent with a person in it.
Mark is convinced that it doesn't matter where a photo is taken. If it has an interesting person or people in it, a photograph will be interesting. So even if you take photos on the same street for days, your images will be interesting.
I'd love to know how people think about this. Is his theory right? Are architectural details boring? Would daily photos of any given street corner be enough?
This thinking reminds me of the movie Smoke, written by Paul Auster. The owner of a Brooklyn smoke shop contemplates the street corner outside his shop day after day.
Personally, I'm not sure. I'm still feeling my way through photography, trying to figure out what I like.
