Sometimes I wonder if I’m really seeing what’s there in my quest for good photographs. I fantasize about traveling without a camera, but that will probably never happen. For one thing, I tend to have a poor memory, so having a photo record helps me remember. And I do find that people appreciate my photos; wanting to use them was a primary inspiration for this blog.
I like to take photos of many things, and in the coming weeks I’ll probably share some I took in Cuba last month. Today I’ll show you some people. I often ask permission before I shoot, but it is also fun to get candid snaps.
The last photo is one of two women who did not want their picture taken. I was actually photographing the building they were in front of, not noticing them until after I snapped it. Later I cropped the photo to put them front and center. It’s a good reminder to be more sensitive as I take pictures in public space.
