You have such wonderful adventures!
Passer by: "WTF?!?!?!"
Gas Station dude: "Oh, that's Kyle, our neighborhood photographer. We just let him do his thing in our parking lot. He doesn't bother anybody."
There are some really beautiful shots in this batch. There's a window one I really like and the shlumpy one on the stairs where she's looking right at the camera (you NEVER see shlumpy + confrontation by a beautiful woman. It's GREAT!).
I'm always a little apprehensive about the passers by. Never know how people are going to react. usually it's "OMG ARE YOU A MODEL CAN I GET A PICTURE OF YOU?" but people who stand and gawk make me nervous. it's easier with a production manager / assistant who can run interference.
I think that's precisely the problem that doomed me as a photographer. I've got that Must Be Aware of Everything tic that people who were bullied as kids often have. I rarely felt completely comfortable focusing on my photograph-ing when I was outside. Studio was fine, but anywhere else was fraught with peril.
I'm having the Urge to take Good Pictures again. About to rid myself of all my film-based stuff. Might be time to get a nicer digital setup than my current point and lousy-shoot.
Totally agree on the value of the shlumpy one on the stairs. Super shot.
By the by, I was compelled - compelled - to listen to LCD Sound System while checking this out. Wonderful job on a spontaneous shoot!
i am unaware of these people. what 5 songs would you suggest i spotify while i look at these again?
(1) Daft Punk is Playing At My House
(2) Dance Yrself Clean
(3) Drunk Girls
(5) My Friends
Track one, especially. And Home, as well.
they's not on spotify. i have resorted to youtube. which actually isn't resorting, it's probably better than spotify.
Yum - as usual! and which scary movie?
You have such an interesting life (and not in the ancient curse, may you have an interesting life kind of way) -- excellent photos and Insidious scared the becheezus out of me, too!
Yes, I always describe dear Kyle as interesting!
I love that dress and those photos. And now I have a scary movie to add to the queueueue.
Kyle, these are awesome - thanks for sharing :-)
these pics are awesome, but i like the behind the scenes best cuz then i get to see my friend.
p.s. insidious was scary. i think we're watching the same movies at the same time. i just watched the toynbee special and in absentia too. it's like, i watched them, and then i saw you talk about them. weird, man, weird.
