I was craving some street photography today, so I swung by downtown for about 45 minutes. First, I walked by Downtown Switchyards, which just opened. It is a workspace for design and consumer focused companies. I've been watching the renovations for a while, so it's nice to see it open and full of people. There is a coffee shop on the front, but it's "members only". So I took pictures through the window -
Then, I walked over to Fairlie Street and saw this guy standing outside of Slice texting, smoking, and drinking a beer. I thought he looked cool, so I took this picture. Then, I thought he would look good in a close-up, so I walked up and asked him if I could take his picture. He said, "No, I'd rather not." "Why not?" I asked. "I don't like how I look in pictures." So, I moved on...but I'm showing you the one I already took...only because I think he looks good (the hat, the beard, the chain, the shoes). Maybe he'll see this one day and like it.
Then, I walked up and saw this guy -
I asked him what he was doing. He said he was taking a selfie. And it looked pretty good. I offered to help him, but I couldn't figure out how to work his phone. So, I just told him to let me take it with my camera.
I think that's better than a selfie.
I turned to my right and saw a pretty girl eating pizza, so I took a shot through the window -
Moving on, I spotted a couple of interesting people on Broad Street -
It was a fun little jaunt for today.
