Pictures with Person-ality

Inspired by fellow photography enthusiasts, such as Willis J. Kier and vafann, I spent time working on taking photographs with people in them, and also playing around with photographic style, image titles and such.  I typically only capture friends and family in my photographs, if I point the camera toward humans at all.  I felt brave, daring…and sort of invasive!  Lol  I hope you enjoy the results.

I started small with just a side view of part of a person. These “Woodle Orange” tomatoes are pretty and delicious, if you like tomatoes, that is. (Bleh!)

a man sleeping on a park bench

This photo was quickly and nervously taken during a vacation to Hot Springs, Arkansas. At first I felt like I was invading someone’s privacy; but it WAS on a PUBLIC bench, right?

I liked the effort this man was putting into capturing his perfect photo. I had one quick chance to take this image as we sped by in heavy traffic. With a little editing, it turned out to be a decent shot, I think.

families watching the sun set from the St. Louis Gateway Arch

Have you ever taken in the view from these windows? These families are watching the sun set through the windows of the St. Louis Gateway Arch. This year is the 50th anniversary of its completion.

My heart was in my throat while I watched this young boy climb down the log above the edge of a ten-foot waterfall, dangle for a while as he attempted to climb down, and finally clamber back onto the top of the log and crawl back to shore.

tour boat traveling through the locks at Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan

We happened to arrive at the locks in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan, in time to watch this tour boat squeeze past a barge in the lock before they were both lowered down and released to continue on their journeys.
