I thought I would share some photos taken at the end of May one evening when the sun decided to break out after a stretch of grey skies. Rather than do my usual walk in my neighborhood I decided to go the near by town of Poulsbo, WA, which has a nice water front park and a downtown district that is full of fun shops and art galleries.
My intent was to walk along the waterfront, get some exercise, and practice some mindless photography. The walk along the waterfront was short was a bit boring, because there were very few boats at the public pier and very few people out. I continued into the downtown shopping area to see if anything could be found there.
While looking in the window at one of the galleries, I noticed that the sun broke out from the clouds and we had rather strong lighting, which made for some interesting reflections.
After crossing the street, I was looking in the window of a new shop that was filled with stuff. After scanning the window with my camera I decided that the collection of stuff would make a worthy subject in the quest of mindless photography.
While I was here, I decided that window shopping for images could be fun, but there had to be a purpose for the quest. So I came up with the following.
This series is presented with B&W images only, because that is how I experienced making these images; my camera is set to record B&W JPEG images, which are projected in the EVF. I may revisit this shopping spree in color in the future, to see if my image choices change.
In the end, I think it was a good day of “mindless” photography.
