“I like happy things, I’m really calm and peaceful. I like birds, bees, I like people” -Eminem

 

Today I went in the exact direction that I want to go with my street photography, in your face. Very happy with the results besides things I see that I need to work on such as composition and background, although background is tough being in a public, heavily traveled space. I’m done with the color vs. black & white question for street shots, I am staying with color. Unless there is an image that will look great converted, color will be my first choice.

 

I really enjoyed taking this man’s photo, tried something new today and asked people if I could take their photo. Right away this guy broke out into a big smile, and what a great smile he has!

 

First bit of controversy…this is a vendor (Red Sox hat) at the Haymarket Farmer’s Market. The vendor and the lady in front of my camera were arguing over money, she said that she gave his son a $20, which the son denied. The vendor was screaming, and I was shooting, this is his exact moment of rage when he realized that I was taking his picture. Next thing he is in my face screaming and asking why I am taking his picture, he grabbed my wrist. I told him to get his hands off me, which he did and we both walked away, of course giving each other dirty looks… Just another day at Haymarket, I watch these vendors verbally assault people every time I’m there. Who ever said Boston was a rude city?
