"self portrait, february 9"
I haven’t walked downtown alone in quite awhile. This morning I wasn’t needed at work and so I decided to use my day off as an opportunity to shoot some photos while enjoying the lovely weather. I like being alone when I’m taking pictures, it makes me feel less self conscious about everyone around me and more aware of what to photograph and explore. I can go my own pace without worrying about whether or not I’m bothering the people I’m with. I prefer my own company when taking pictures, unless my friends are comfortable with becoming the subjects of my photography! Then things are a little different.
Tonight I finally got the chance to take long exposure photos at the beach! With the help of a few friends we came up with some nifty shots.
