Watchers

Street photography is fickle. Some days you come home with a basket full of jewels, and others you have nothing but garbage. Being skilled at the art increases your chances, but sometimes it just isn't there. Location can make a difference, but it is no guarantee. A high density of diverse population is the ideal setting but the experienced Streeter can find art anywhere. On some rare occasions everything clicks and potential scenarios for art just roll out in front of you over and over. 

One such day occurred for me in September of 2013. It was my first day in Boston Massachusetts with the sole agenda of shooting Street. I wouldn't say that I knew the city well, but I did know where people were guaranteed to be. Over the next several hours I would have the opportunity to make some of my best Street Photography to date. Some of the shots were easy while others required all of the meager skills that I possessed. You never know for sure what you have until you get home, but I felt in "the zone".

Squint by Vermontster

As the hours passed I barely thought about anything, including photography. I didn't stop for anything, I never do. I don't eat, I don't drink, and I only heed the call of nature when it is absolutely essential. I didn't have a plan as I rolled through the core of the city. In and out of the subway system, through parks and markets, into the North End and down to Chinatown.

Amazing things happened right in front of me while I had to dig a bit for others.

In the end, I had what turned out to be possibly my best single day of Street.
