These photographs were taken on the way home from our trip to Lake Oconee last weekend. The photograph above, however, was taken in June but I though it appropriate to include it within this series. I love the fleeting, improvisational act of taking shots while driving in a car. It is the only experience I’ve ever had with street photography and perhaps that is because I feel safer at a distance. I am not brave enough (not yet at least) to ask strangers if I can photograph them… I feel too invasive and a bit like I’m exploiting them… but I’ll probably get over that soon). For now, I’ll stick to these type of window shots. I find this type of photography fascinating because there is so much to observe from this angle. If one did not have a camera in hand, one would miss these moments. You never know what you are going to capture. I tried to spot things ahead of time, since I was shooting this in manual focus mode, and photograph what I thought would make for interesting compositions. It felt a lot like social documentary photography… except at a distance. I was amazed at how many people were so dedicated to running that they were out running in the pouring rain… but, that’s probably because I am SO not a runner. I’m too lazy. It probably felt good in this heat to have some rain cooling them off as they ran. Anyways, I hope you enjoy these photographs!
