Often when I’m out and about with the kids, and not specifically being a photographer, I carry a small camera such as my Nikon P7000. The shots I snap with it are easy and don’t take too much effort. Besides photos of the kids themselves, these are sketch book images, reminders to me of something, or “be here now” unedited versions of what I see.
This image of a shadow of a parking sign on an ornate sidewalk in downtown San Francisco falls into the last category, and sort of reminds me of two aliens talking, the shadow is an R2D2-type and the white marble inlay more the cosmic squid.
Photography is fun, and it is important not to forget it!
