Day 11: The Jaywalker
So far for my daily shot I’ve had the luxury of being able to choose from one of several shots taken that day, whether from a hours long outing that generated multiple compositions, like Monday’s trip to Fort Foster, or yesterday America’s Pawn Shop image, where I merely re-framed the sea subject a couple of times and shot several frames for variation in the light trails.
But this was a first for me. Today I took one shot. One actuation. One press of the shutter. It was a fleeting moment. As I was out running errands I noticed an elderly woman, shopping bags in her hands, standing on the median strip of a relatively busy roadway. As she started to cross I rolled sown my window, grabbed my camera (my trusty Olympus Pen F) and took a quick shot.
Fine art? No, probably not. But it did what I needed it to do — It conveyed a mood.
