People

The long break from concentration on making pictures during the winter somehow made me more curious about people and street photography.  I think it may have been the many political demonstrations outside the office where I worked and the throngs of people in the legislative buildings during the session.  

Whatever the reason, I found that I made many photos of people during my visit to Portugal in May, and I've continued to make images of people on the streets and outdoors since my return.  Most of them are stronger in black and white.  Here are a few I'm working on, now.

 This group of men and older boys were body surfing at Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.  The sunlight on their bodies made me think of classical Greek figures, but it's their reactions to the surf that created a play of forms in different postures.

 This older man and a few others fished near our hotel in Portugal each morning and evening.  As he does here, these men often cast and waited motionless for fish.  They perched precariously over the sea below them.  They demonstrated great patience.
