The Home Stretch
Let’s face it, starting street photography as one of my final themes could be a real challenge for me because I have very little practice in this genre. Going from shooting flowers to shooting black-leather clad bikers in the streets is like climbing into a Lamborghini after driving a Toyota Prius. A bit overwhelming at first but seriously fun once the car is racing.
Today was extremely intimidating at first but then it became quite exhilarating as I let the energy of the crowd carry me. Eventually, I noticed that I was not worrying about what anyone might be thinking about me in my tie-dye and shorts. In fact, I felt almost invisible moving my way through the crowd and just observing through my lens this subculture living their lives.
