My first outing with the Photoholics was to visit River Street and photograph people. Yikes! People?!? That's really outside my comfort zone. However, I endeavored to persevere and I believe I was rewarded for my efforts.
We found ourselves on River Street (in Savannah, Georgia) on a gray, drizzly day. Now, that's GREAT for photographs, IMHO. Colors pop against a gray background. However, there were few tourists out on that gray day. That's when I discovered that the most interesting and most colorful people are not the tourists. Oh, no. It's the locals that are so much fun to watch and photograph. All in all, I'm pleased with the results of that outing.
|"The Husband Parking Bench" - yeah, you know. Every retail area has one.|
|I met these gals in the open air market. They run a booth there which sells jewelry and clothing. They are wonderfully upbeat, charming and very sociable. Can you tell they are mother and daughter?|
|Not exactly a person (but don't tell HIM that). This is the shop kitty at the Christmas Shop.|
|Love this guy! He was headed down the sidewalk and I was headed right for him. I picked up my camera, aimed... and he smiled! Of course I think of him as "True Grit"!|
|Probably my favorite photo of the day. Not only did I capture the clerk in the eye popping sweet shop, but I also managed to capture a self-portrait; a fact of which I was blissfully unaware until I saw it on my computer much later! ;)|
