Looking At Me

large-0010549.jpg

In todays’ digital age a lot of people, including me, place a good deal of stress on just getting noticed. Sure the photo above is an arresting image  but if that’s all it is, that’s not enough.

If I told you that I was watching this guy from the time he got on the subway for a chance to take his picture. However, because he didn’t look overly friendly I wasn’t sure I could do it without a possible altercation.

I came up with this plan. Since my seat was right next to a door, if he got off before I did, there was a chance a picture could be snapped while his attention was on stepping off the car. 

As luck would have it, he did leave one stop earlier then I and although he caught a quick glimpse of my little Ricoh GR camera he got off the car without incident.

A little more context never hurts. Thus ends the lesson.

Bowtie Wearer With Bad Knees I spent my early years in Massachusetts in a little town called Easton. I went to Harvard, served in the Navy as Operations Officer on and LST, founded a construction company and served in the state Legislature as Assistant Minority Leader. However my life really began when I moved to Maine and opened an art gallery. I've been around the fine arts in the commercial art business for over 25 years now and loved (almost) every minute of it. I look at every day is a gift, except when it's very cold outside or I have to go to the dentist.

I'd love to hear from you
