street photography

I’ve been trying a little bit of street photography – candid images of daily life, strangers going about their business in public places – and find it enjoyable, though my tendency is more to include a person as an element in a composition, rather than to take a photo of the person. (This distinction may be irrelevant to everyone else … but makes sense to me!) I am hesitant to intrude on people’s privacy, so have been trying this type of photography only in busy tourist areas where most people have cameras and those who are there are aware that they may end up in various photographs. Vancouver’s Granville Island is ideal for this because it offers interesting buildings and industrial spaces as well as a lively market where you can see all sorts of tourists, local residents and art students.

This evening was beautiful and warm, more like summer than autumn, and I took a break to stroll around the neighbourhood, taking photos of whatever caught my eye.

I took these photos a couple of years ago at the 66 Diner in Albuquerque (and finally got around to sorting and editing them today!)

summer evening city alley

When I’m wandering around the neighbourhood, I often find my eye drawn to alleyways. Not sure why, except that there are so many interesting details to see. Here’s what caught my attention earlier this evening.
