the images are on my laptop at home
but wanted to mention this before I forget this...
yesterday I went for an afternoon stroll with the camera
went around the block before I had to wind up the final hours of my work day
at an intersection a block from work there was a commuter stalled at a light
he was on an interesting bike... I think it was a fixie
I recall it had mustache bars
before this rider in office clothing busted a move and ran the light I went for the camera
with no time to ask for permission I got down low to try and get the rider and the bike in the frame and crop the image within the camera
not sure how he was going to respond I went about my photo way just the same
as I was about to snap the first image I was busted!
he noticed me
how could he not notice me?
I am 6'4" tall
crouching on the ground 5 feet away
to my surprise he recognizes me
not by face
but by action
he asks me if I am John Guad
or some similar bastardization of my name
I say I am as I snap the pictures and make a quick correction of his mispronunciation
as the shutter snaps the light turns green
the subject in the image thanks me for getting him through his day everyday
that made my day
so, I thanked him
as the photos I took will make my day when I compose them in my "photo collage thing"
hearing that my "page" gets him through his day makes my day
thanks for saying thanks
here is a GWADZILLA ARCHIVE from a few years ago in the FALL
I blogged about a number of ideas that are floating through my head
take a look
it is worth a look
scroll through... it is intersting to see the blog sans images
