Photography is the art of observation. I've found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.
I went out with a friend the other day to have some fun shooting street photography. It's so nice to just go out and remain open to what goes on in front of you... without having to watch over two small people and keep them safe- also, I'm sure the kids would NOT have been down with me sitting in certain spot for extended periods of time just waiting for someone to walk or bike into the frame. We hit up the waterfront and did a loop using the Hawthorne and Steel Bridges.
