A Quick Jaunt

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.
