Folks & Photography

I don't do much street photography- I'm not very good at it.  But there's a reason why I'm not very good- I don't do it very much.  How's that for circular reasoning?  Each Saturday from May through October, our city hosts a farmer's market.  This morning's cool temperatures, low humidity, and crystal blue sky brought the people out in droves.  I'm just glad that we walked to the market and didn't have to navigate down high street through hundreds of shoppers.  As we were headed out of town, we stopped for about twenty minutes to listen to this group from the Columbus Folk Music Society.  Weston wasn't as brave as this little boy- he stayed back from the musicians.  Eventually, he was running around and dancing but all from what he determined a safe distance.  We love the market- and, most importantly, it offers me one of the best opportunities to do street photography- and If I want to get good at, I just better start doing it, shouldn't I?

Clouded Sulphur

This is the type of image that I was looking to capture with my recently purchased Sigma 180 Macro.  It's simply too bad that Sigma isn't making this lens any more, I'm glad that I bought a copy!

I don't get down there much anymore- Columubs really does have a picturesque waterfront for a City that is 200 miles away from any decent sized natural lake.
