Street Photography, Suburban style

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.

Obviously a mannequin but I just love her expression and OMG, those glasses!
The “Crushed Olive”is one of my favorite stores, I do tend to eat a lot of lettuce and I LOVE the balsamic vinegars and olive oils that they offer! The highlights and shadows grabbed my attention as I walked by.
Village of Babylon, loved this image of store owner painting her front window.
Good thing this store was not yet open or the cash I was carrying would have quickly disappeared 🙂 I have absolutely no need for this but I also have a cabinet full of unused/un-needed ceramic pieces.
This cutie pie was bouncing down the street with her dad, I was thinking to myself that while adorable I wouldn’t want to be the one to keep her brushed or have to vacuum the house! As she came by me I couldn’t resist a quick pet so had a short conversation with her owner. Turns out she is part Bernese Mountain dog and part poodle…That means she doesn’t shed!

I call this one ying-yang. The front of the bicycle is visible on the metal post, the back of the bike visible on the wall shadow
Again, the light and shadow caught my eye.
