Not Two

Sometimes a couple, if they are really blessed, become not two but one.

Together

It’s been quite a few weeks since I posted something here. A neglect caused by laziness, change in thinking, or just plain fear, I’m not sure. When I stumbled across this photo today, I found I wanted to share it.

The couple is my stepson and his girlfriend hiking in Petaluma, California. They’re cresting a ridge in the Helen Putnam Regional Park. Nothing in front of them but grey cloudless sky. Their formless way ahead reminded me what we all are facing currently with the Covid-19 epidemic.

The way they’re doing it is the way we should.

No Mercy

There are some folks on the street of this city that I’d prefer not tangling with. In situations like these my tiny Ricoh camera is very helpful.

Love

Taken in Boston’s Chinatown, this couple was totally oblivious to the photographer taking their picture. It was a lovely scene.

Mind Game?

I wish I could tell you what these people are doing. The only thing I know for sure was they were completely oblivious to the fact I was taking their photograph.

A Walk In The Woods

DSC03227.jpg

Muir Woods to be exact. A lovely national park just north of San Francisco. The light among these giant redwoods varied constantly from harsh direct sun to a gloomy darkness, making the extreme contrast hard to handle. This couple in front of me just got kissed by the sun in a way that created a silhouetted look that I liked.

Apprehension

The door of the subway car was just about to open and this couple was poised to get off. However, from the look on their faces it was not going to be a stress free experience. 

That’s the great thing about street shooting. Observing the thousands of situations in this city’s daily life that have mystery and drama to them yet can’t be fully understood.

Silver Fox…Maybe Later

There are so many stories out here on the street. Of course it is not for me to know what they are but I have a lot of fun making them up.

I like shooting through restaurant windows. If I’m lucky I can catch an enigmatic couple like this one.

Hello Young Lovers

large-0634.jpg

Walking up Boston’s Commonwealth Mall is always a fine place for a little street photography. This couple had stopped by the firefighters memorial and were completely oblivious to the fact that I was taking their picture. Not once but a number of times. Young love is lovely to see up close.

Love In The Park

I’ve just came back for a brief walk where I saw these two absolutely lost in each other’s company. Thank goodness love still exists in this modern world of ours that currently seems so filled with hate.
