Shoot First, Ask Questions Later
While I lived in the East Village, I used to take my camera out on a stroll about every weekend, photographing interesting scenes and people downtown. Despite not having a full time job, I haven't had the time to do this for the last few months but realize how happy it makes me feel. Here are some shots taken in Soho and the West Village. Yeah, I forgot how great it feels to go through photos and have that "aha" moment when a great photo stands out. Even though I can see the image of the back of my camera, I can never really know that everything came together until pulling it up on my computer. And then, it will be the details that catch my eye - an interesting expression, color pattern, or lighting.. Everything comes together.
