A Boardwalk Stroll

Part of our recent trip to Ocean City, Maryland involved a couple of strolls along their famous boardwalk. I have always been intrigued by the styling’s of street photography but have never attempted to undertake the always interesting, somewhat nerve racking, sometimes dangerous aspect of this genre. I do people watch, all the time in fact. I am constantly looking for expressions, shapes, styles, contours, and colors but as a portrait photographer, not as a sometimes sneaky I caught you looking like that photographer.  Anyway, I figured why not give it a go and see what translates out.

I already know how to be subtle and not so subtle…but I did not realize how fast you need to be when trying to capture the image that you see in your head as it walks by. Some knew, most did not, I only requested one shot, and even got photo bombed by my daughter as I was lining someone up. I wanted to request a couple more but did not get up the nerve. All in all pretty cool experience, turned out much better than I anticipated.  A common theme? Boardwalks have lots of food….

I present to you my interpretation of the people of the Ocean City Boardwalk

Thanks for stopping by!  Till next time…
