I did it.
I love street photography, and I follow many pages on Facebook of the brave folks that do it.
A popular page that I love in my newsfeed is Humans of New York. The images are simple. The artist is natural and seems like a purist in his edits. The colors and poses are just real life, and I love the stories he tells in the pictures.
I've been aching to have the guts to do it.
My camera was in my hand. I was about to sneak a photo of my friend in an airport as we waited for some folks we love that were returning to Birmingham from the Ukraine. My pals, Hallie and Jennifer, encouraged me to turn around and photograph the lady behind me.
I asked a few questions and permission to photograph.
Here it is:
"What is your favorite part of this job?"
"Meeting new people like y'all!"
"What is one piece of advice you'd give to folks traveling?"
"Take God with them."
Thanks to the lovely and beautiful smiling Dorothy Collins for being my first subject!
Thanks to Jennifer Vines and Hallie Hooten for the push!
Oh, and here are two more photos I snuck that kinda make me smile from the day.
Love, love, love!
