21 Street Shots and Sunday Trees

Hello Readers, 

June 2019 is time for digital decluttering and a bit of a blog pause. 

__

 Back in February 2017, a Priorhouse blog pause post featured 33 leftover “Street Shots” (here). So…. decided to share some street shots for today’s post. Also, It is Sunday and so adding in tree photos that need to leaf, I mean “leave” a dusty folder. 

Taking street photography – whether of people – or of trees – or of other things that come our way – is a favorite hobby and so this post is linked to Patti’s Favorite Things lens-artists. 

Today’s 21 street shots are numbered so please let me know if you have a fav.

😊

Ready?

Street shots 1 through 12:

1) Call this photo “READY” (‘Mom – can you come and get me now?’ – Kansas City, KS – 2018)
2) Call this one “meh…. not bad – 102 Likes…” Checking social media while his baby dances (maybe) and look – another corona bottle – with rind? – was Dan here?

 

3) “CHATTING COUPLE” ‘We’ve got this, baby!’ Or “Honey – are you sure these shoes go with this outfit?”(Check out that fire pit- that was really what I was aiming for)

 

4) “CULTURE COUPLE” The young lady to the right is an artist and yoga instructor – we exchanged info – I need to sort through emails and phone numbers I have collected (yawn) but I think her name is Katt. I need to find a better system for my street-shot names. Also, If you look to the right you can see part of the Hopper painting that our local museum, VMFA, is proud to have. Tourmaline might like this.
5) “SMOKE BREAK” (love the two different generations of women) (Orlando, FL 2018) this is a favorite image for me —
6) “WATER BREAK” (I like the legs in this shot – bent knee with person sitting – and gals walking have right legs in sync)
7) “FRENCH FRY BREAK” (No phone time – puttin’ it down because this is serious French Fry business)

 

8) “WAITING” – (See the phones – folks are on the phone, lady in pink is holding her gigantic model and lady with mustard yellow shirt has phone tucked in the back pocket).
9) “DUDE!” (Little Fears Shout Out. This little fears blue hoodie was one of the best gifts for someone who is hard to get gifts for – Check out the Little Fears Blog: https://littlefears.co.uk/2019/06/06/the-shore/)

 

 

10) “WONDERFUL AWE” This shot Reminds me of the song “Everything That’s Good” by Sean McConnell – he wrote the song for his young daughter – and this song has grown on me while jamming to the Secondhand Smoke album this spring. (Click to hear to see Sean perform this song live on Nashville’s Channel 4 with some tasty guitaring….). 

 

 A few lyrics from Everything That’s Good

“Slow dance, as I play the tambourine with my feet as I strum my guitar. And sing…. Oh the heaven that you bring is a helluva light in the dark.

There’s a mystery – that you never leave. There’s a heart – that’s always on your sleeve. There’s a light – that disappears – the longer that we walk down here.

But you still shine

like you should.

You are everything that’s good.” 

Sean McConnell is incredible in live performances too- check it out:

 

 

11) “CHILLING OUT” Took this photo at the Sean McConnell concert in March 2019 – this was before the show and I was going for the brick wall.  This lady standing there, all chill, has a nice vibe.  I also like the photo because it reminds me of the surprise I was in for that night. We went with friends to hear Sean McConnell play (Sean’s website is here) and I was not expecting to LOVE his music. The Secondhand Smoke album is in the running for album of the year.  This photo is linked to OWS – for size: https://travelwithintent.com/2019/06/09/size/
12) “GO, GIRL!” Gettin’ the work done… – and how do you like this angle of the playing card dress? 

Street shots 13 through 21 are in a slideshow:

    1. Thanks Jill – the first week away is always the hardest for me – but I know the value of a break – even if not needed – lol – and also enjoying the cleaning and deleting process

  1. Loved the moose sculpture in the first one and is that the same man in the same shirt for #2 & #3? But the favorite ism the little girl in #10. The beauty of life through the eyes of a child.

    1. Hi Anita – thanks for your detailed question – that is not the same guy in those photos – but same event – we’re watching my husband’s friend’s band play (called the mashup) and there were some groups there and so I think those two guys have the same logos on their shirts – but I did not even notice that –
      So thanks
      And cheers to that innocent beauty πŸ’›β˜€οΈ

  2. Love your captions or descriptions of each picture. They are funny. For “Chatting Copule”, I think of something a bit different. I think the man was very seriously listening to what the lady was saying. He was a bit intense.

    1. Hi YC – yes – I totally agree that there is a seriousness to the convo –
      And not at all was she even asking about the boots – so I truly stretched it a bit – but I still do wonder if she ever asked that – and so let’s see – getting closer to your feedback
      The guy says
      “I know the ladies in there were being rude – so let’s decide if we should wait for our food or just go home now. “

    1. Oh thanks for sharing a fav! Did you notice a third person in the window —
      And i took that photo because we were waiting there a while and a couple years ago – the sweater that he is wearing were really “in” and it reminded me of some gifts we bought

    1. Oh thanks so much – and that playing cards dress one had something special about it for me when I looked at the photos later – so I am glad to hear it stood out -ttys

  3. Hi Yvette. Isn’t it amazing how many in your photos are using their digital devices or at least have them handy. I am always drawn to young children so #10 gets my vote. πŸ™‚

    1. Hi Norah – it is amazing and I actually have a folder of street shots with people on their phones – and last month in Baltimore watched a lady cross a busy street and never looked up once from her phone – wow the skills we have developed – but the French fries guy had his phone down – but still in view – lol

      Liked by 1 person

      1. He did – it was in easy reach. We have a lot of people here stepping out onto the road without looking for traffic while they continue to monitor their phones. Then the drivers are blamed if anything happens. I think phone users, and everybody, need to be more aware of their surroundings and take greater responsibility for their actions.

  4. I like all these photos and the house of cards dress – wow, how different is that! I agree that french-fry eating is a seriously enjoyable business and should not be mingled with your favorite device, but instead with a little ketchup.

  5. Great to see your street shots again, mon amie. I like the B&W with the legs too, and the baby, so cute. Funny cartoon too…enjoy your blog break and see you soon. I’m in and out here and there as I can πŸ™‚ ❀

  8. Great street shots…When I go to art museums I find myself drawn to the portraits…it’s the people factor I guess…I feel the same about your photos…I love the people.
