I Remember

How we work today © Steven Willard

I remember when a scene like this was unusual. The lone individual sitting at a restaurant table might read the newspaper (remember those?) or sometimes a book (remember those?) but rarely did you see someone working. Now we think nothing of it.

The fellow in this photograph didn’t know I was taking his picture, but we did strike up a conversation and have since become friends. He likes the picture because it doesn’t reveal too much of him. I disagree, I think it tells quite a lot.

Mysterious Markings

So many things I don’t understand about “street photography”.

View from Meteor Crater, Arizona, I loved the idea of putting a frame around it and calling it a picture.

The Drive By

Garden Arch © Steven Willard

An unusual situation for me, because I can’t recall where this image was made. What I do remember is that I caught a glimpse of the arch out of the corner of my eye as I was driving down a two lane country road someplace in Litchfield County, Connecticut…as if that narrows it down. I pulled off the road (not an easy thing on some of our roads) and walked back to make some exposures. I hadn’t seen the antique barrow until then.

Olympus OMD EM5 with Panasonic 20mm f1.7 lens, one of my favorites. I love how it “draws”, and produces an almost 3D impression. It’s inexpensive, too.

Looking around near where I live I often stumble across places where there is evidence of different eras. This drain, or culvert, was clearly constructed well before the road that passes over it was paved. No contractor today would use such materials; much too costly.
