In Greenpoint

Today I went to Greenpoint. The first time in quite awhile. It was perfect weather for intentional camera movement and blur. Overcast and occasionally raining. I met up with a friend that I haven't seen in a few years and we walked and talked and many of the photos I took today were while we were walking and talking. I guess I can call it my walk-by shooting series. It is very much like action painting, action photography. I always have my mind on what's around me and choose what to shoot by colors and light and which direction to move the camera. It's kind of fun I have to say. And I am happy with some of the photos I've seen so far. Yes, they are abstract. I very much like the element of chance in photography, in art, in life. When I'm fortunate there's a kind of synchronicity. And hey, I can walk and talk and shoot at the same time! Talk about a good workout! I took it easy. Still recovering but getting back to my normal self. Thanks to Charles for accompanying me on it! Nothing like experimenting! - In Greenpoint, 22 April 2017.
