vacant / unattended


L - Nikon / T - Nikon film camera

The other day I drove to Watkinsville to go to a huge pottery sale and after I drooled over the beautiful pottery that I couldn't afford to splurge on I drove around town. It's really a beautiful town and there were a lot of interesting places to explore and take photos of, but I was wishing T was with me. She much bolder than I about getting the shot she really wants. One place I have been wanting to visit is the Main Street Yarns and Fibers that I learned about through Maya at Springtree Road, but because of the holiday weekend it was closed. I should have felt completely comfortable exploring and having the place (outside) all to myself to photograph whatever I wanted to of this charming little shop, but all I got was a few photos of these old blue chairs. I should definitely go back with T - it's so close by. / just another shot from my morning class visit to downtown athens. i think my uncle will like this one.

love this blue chair--with that yellow leaf. beautiful! i like how you have paired a bright, colorful shot with the black and white. both lovely.

I envy T's confidence to grab the moment for the shot, but I think you underestimate the cautious photographer's approach - your empty blue chair is beautiful!

It's funny how some are so liberated owning the shot and how a few scuttle around the outside of it. I use the word scuttle 'cause that's what I do, feeling uneasy about ownership. But still and always what you shoot translates into more than what the pictures suggest on first glance.

Taylor, I'm sorry I'm just now seeing this but I LOVE it. More please! :-) Hope you're having a great semester.

I so get this. I feel shy with my camera sometimes too. I feel like I am being watched and it makes me feel self conscious.

I love the blues and yellows together!
