    Re: Capture a Stranger

    Here is a stranger with a very interesting job. I wish they still wore those cool hats and overalls like they did when I was a kid.

    Re: Capture a Stranger

    The Mrs. and I were on vacation last week and of course, we had to go to the mall. I just detest malls, so while she was doing her senseless shopping, I waited out in the parking lot and figured that this would be a great chance to capture some strangers. I threw on my 1.7 so I could get out there quite aways and hopefully be inconspicuous. I had a blast. People can get some real intresting expressions on their faces at times. However, I think the dude in the first photo caught me. As soon as I shot the pic I pointed the camera towards the sky at a gull flying by. :idea: I think that fooled him. I didn't point the camera his way again. I was beginning to feel like a private investigator.

    Old Timer, I have one of those hats. Design of them is great....comfortable, keeps sun out of eyes and bill can be flipped up easily when it gets in the way of flashes.

    Re: Capture a Stranger

    Being very shy, I hate to draw attention to myself when taking pictures. I prefer to hide behind my zoom lens and take candids.

    But a few months ago I went over to the US Whitewater Center to see what kind of action shots I could find. There was a group of kayakers making a run, and I took a couple of shots from the side as they each passed individually. The first guy smiled big and I got a great shot. Another (#2 here) actually yelled to me, "Take MY picture!" You just never know.

    Mind you - these need some post processing work -

    (I'm off to take some PS tutorials now...)

    IMO, candids make the most interesting shots. Many years ago I tried my hand at weddings and studio portraiture. Man, was that boring. Candids can be a blast.

    Yup Greg, Ruffus visited USNWC, but not on that trip. Good eyes and memory!

    Absolutely! I did take pictures for a friend's second wedding a few years ago because they didn't want the formal posed stuff. It was scary but a lot of fun and they LOVED the pictures.

    I spoke with this guy for a few minutes earlier this summer and he was completely non-sensical. Something about being set up by the Catholics, the Pope, Bush, secret prisons, forced drug injection, Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, Babylon, the Bible. Craziest conspiracy theory I've heard yet.

    OK I'm really not seeing what the big white chunk out of the top of the train engine is. Can you explain?

    Here's one from a while back. I don't know who the kid is. He was so into looking at the toy truck he didn't even knew I took his picture.
