My season as a baseball spectator pretty much ended last night with the Pittsburgh Pirate’s loss to the St. Louis Cardinals. I have always loved Baseball even though at age 8 I was thoroughly humiliated in Little league when I took the field at 3rd base standing on the wrong side! I got better though and played Outfield and 1st base and occasional a relief catcher. My big moment came in hitting a three run home run over a fence just like this one.
To be a good photographer you must give yourself permission to observe the world around you. In my world this includes people which means you have to give yourself permission to be a little bit of a voyeur. Some can’t do that and limit their work to flowers or vistas and there is nothing wrong with that. Being a photographer is about setting limits. One friend looked at my work for “Just a Kiss” and said that I was shameless and really had big cohones. This made me glow, what a compliment for a street photographer. I like to photograph the little moments of life, a hug, a kiss, a passing moment. You can buy a print of this image at my commercial gallery.
