It Never Rains In Sunny California

Desperation is beginning to be emotional  factor. The rain is making sane people nuts.

Storm Coming

Passed this lady going into town today. She didn’t look very happy. I don’t know whether she was peeved with my camera or the fact that it was pretty obvious that she was about to get very wet.  One further thing. I believe the picket fence was a huge help with this composition. Finallyly, I shot this photo with an Olympus EM1 MK II. It’s quite a machine. Complicated as hell but I suspect, once mastered, I’ll love it.

Hard Wear

I really like taking photographs of people on the street with window reflections behind them. This shot is a good example of that. It’s out front of a coffee bar with the reflection of the city library in the background. The logo on the woman’s jacket serves as the picture’s title. The natural light on the woman’s face is helpful too.

Eating Alone

There’s a nice cafe where we often go to for a mid-morning snack. Today I couldn’t help noticing these two guys hunched over completely engrossed in their own thoughts. My little Ricoh GR was able to take a quick photo of each of them as we were walking out.

Coffee Shop Window

These reflected/see-through window images can become almost dream like. This lady reading in the coffee shop window is surrounded by things that make little sense yet seem to somehow emanate from the page she is reading.

It Will Cost You

The beauty of street photography is that sometimes you can take an image that is REALLY hard to decipher. This is one of them.

Do NOT mess with me!

A Fun Fall At The Frog Pond

Not much to say about this except everybody on the ice today was having a VERY good time.
