When Im away I away I like to explore with my camera and an open mind.
Brooks Jensen in his Lenswork podcasts calls it Photography By Wandering About. I think of it as photographing in “Gathering” mode rather than “Hunting” for a specific image.
The trouble is often in just looking at everything I can sometimes see nothing.
This image was made one morning in San Francisco. When, eventually, I recognised that it was the shadows that made this urban scene interesting, I was able to see clearly and find my picture.
