I am a firm believer in the idea that a photographer should always be filling the gaps between assignments with personal work — even if it’s something as simple and uninvolved as a walk-around photo session. One never can be too sure what will fill up that reserve of inspiration, or spark that new idea. If anything, it’s always good to stay disciplined.
That’s precisely where I found myself when Ms. Hele sent me an email saying that she and her manfriend were going to be in town for the weekend, and were wondering if I was interested in shooting something low key. The following photos are a result of walking around a few neighborhood blocks towards the end of spring (there may also be one or two shots of my house). In an hour and a half of walking and shooting, I was able to snap up more decent portraits than I can safely share with you now, here. It was a good day.
