As I looked for something to write about, I realised that this one wouldn’t be all that different from my previous blogpost. The picture is but the motivation behind it is very similar.
It’s about seeing the unusual in your everyday surroundings. It’s about noticing the humour in certain constellations, like here with the very frank and open builders’ loo, and about fully taking in moments that delight when your mind is actually busy dealing with everyday problems to the exclusion of the life around you.
It is not about learning to see such things because that’s somehow what street photography is about. It is, in fact, the other way round: the things you would miss if you didn’t make yourself focus fully on what you caught in your peripheral vision are little treasures. They make your life richer by putting a smile on your face or by making you think, and maybe on the basis of both, act; thus defining who you are as a person and what kind of story you have to tell the rest of us through your pictures.
