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. 

The Conversation

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.

Quiet Moment

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.

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.

Honky-tonk Man

He just walked up to this piano on the sidewalk and let it rip!

Bookstore People

Reading! What more can I say.

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.

Just Fishing

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!

Canine Friend

Today we were walking along the banks of the Petaluma River looking for birds, when we came across this friendly couple looking like they were doing the same thing.
