Workers Man Cave

While waiting for my wife to come out of the hair stylist's place of business I had been watching constructions workers at a new motel work site. It had been overcast and it was getting darker when suddenly it began to rain, and rain big drops it did.

Just as quick as the rain began these constructions workers, about five of them, took off like crazy and ran to this building that was housing tools. Immediately it changed from a tool shed to a man cave. While there the rain just came straight down, quite hard at that.

Even when my wife came out and we left, they were still there in their make shift Workers Man Cave...

Trying To Remember

Please click on the photo for a better image...

I had noticed this lady walking in a way that made it look like she may have been lost. So, I continued to watch for a few moments and finally she took this pose and just stood there for about 15 to 20 seconds, during which time I took this photo. Finally, she gave a little smile and just walked away seemingly happy.

Very interesting moment...

Backyard Serenity

Please click on the photo for a better image...

"There are photographic opportunities everywhere you look and they are there just waiting for you to find them."

That is what I have written in the side bar to the right of this photo. I am not a great photographer, but I am a happy photographer. I enjoy taking photographs, especially photos of "nouns" and "verbs" that other people take for granted. Just like this image.

This is not my backyard but it is in the neighborhood of where I live. I like to walk around the neighborhood and look for the common or un-noticed scene in which to photograph. Many of the photos on this photography journal are either from my yard or from my neighborhood as well as the area in which I live.

For me this is the kind of photography that I enjoy. But it is all encompassing. You see, I like to photograph landscapes, cityscapes, people and street photography and, not to mention, youth sports.

Photography should be fun and something that you can do everyday. There are photographs everywhere and, like I say, if you are not looking you will never see. So, go out and look around, take nothing for granted and you just might be surprised at what you have just photographed all because it was something you have just seen.

Friday Favorite..... Fred's Barbershop

Please click on the photo for a better image...

The Barber chair in Fred's Barbershop on North Centre St. I do wonder how many people have sat in this chair and the stories the customers have told? Yeah, it sure would be interesting to know but, then again we may not want to know.

Taken early morning before officially opening. First published in 2013.
