Todays photos were taken across the street from each other in, shall we say, a rougher area of town. As much as I like being in nice environments, I do tend to veer towards some seedier sections of cities for my photography. I just find more interesting subjects there. The “unstructured” lifestyle in those areas leads to sometimes odd or strange juxtapositions of elements, colors, and textures which, in my mind, makes for great imagery. Of course those areas are also where I picked up the habit of working quickly by getting in and taking the shot and getting out. I have to try to not attract too much attention, which can be difficult when I’m trying to find subjects and I may drive around the block a few times. I haven’t had any problems so far and considering I rarely shoot photos of people, most who have spotted me just leave me alone and probably think I’m nuts anyhow for taking pictures of junk.
