“Street” photography makes me uncomfortable because I don’t like to impose on people or invade their space. So when I do take pictures with people in them, I tend to be sneaky about it. (Which is today’s day and age is probably a recipe for disaster.) I did actually make some business cards so that I could ask permission and offer to send people the pictures, which I’ve done once so far with a couple enjoying a sunset.
In this case, I was walking back out from exploring the Presque Isle shoreline and saw this young woman sitting on the rocks. I had my telephoto lens on the camera and snapped a few quick pictures because something about the scene just really captured my creative imagination. It seemed a lonely view, but felt deeper because of the symbol of finding one’s way provided by the light house.
None of the images actually came out great, because I didn’t have time to adjust the settings as properly as I’d have liked, so this is heavily edited. (There’s about 12% more tree than what was shown in the original photo. lol)
