Day off from work, weather supposed to be sunny so why not go out and do a little shooting. For those of you that do not know me well, I had slowly started Street Photography a few months before the pandemic. I needed a new challenge, and believe me ,street photography can be a challenge for one that is not comfortable taking photos of people. I can get to NYC in 2 hours, and what better place to practice, but life being what it is, that came to a halt. Did learn some new techniques in the past 10 months not related to street photography, but today I needed to get out in the fresh air and sunshine. Left my house at 7am and headed to the south shore of LI where, if you travel along Montauk Hwy, you will run into many suburban villages. I had planned on visiting only 1 or 2, but so enjoyed myself I visited 5… Bellport, Sayville, Islip, BayShore, and Babylon.
I enjoyed looking through the windows of shops as the sun rose, the lights and shadows made everyday objects seem a bit special. Yes, I know, only one photo below has a person in it…like I said, I am really not comfortable shooting people. I’ll get there someday, in the mean time indulge me and I am always open to comments, critique and suggestions on what I have captured.
