Granted this is not the finest street photo but I’m sharing it because of how it came about.
I’ve been reading an excellent book by David Gibson, The Street Photographer’s Manual. It includes guidance from the author, discussion of images and various profiles of street photographers. Today I read the profile on Matt Stuart who has an amazing ability to see images that most of us would miss. I followed this up by checking out his website.
As I shot the afternoon I found myself noticing things that I might normally walk right past. And then as I passed my local music store for the first time I saw these drum cases smiling at me like father and son.
I find it amazing that studying images from great photographers can not only inspire you but it can also shape how you actually see the world.
