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.
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.
It’s always a pleasure seeing a completely contented person. It may only be for the briefest moment but sitting still and loosing oneself in thought should be a daily goal for all of us.
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.
The beauty of street photography is that sometimes you can take an image that is REALLY hard to decipher. This is one of them.
There’s a little pond about half way up to the top of Helen Putnam regional park in Petaluma. I sincerely doubt if there are any fish in it. However almost every time we go by the place there are some boys trying their luck. It’s a wonderful childhood scene!
