Exhaustion

I love street photography. I’d love to do more of it, but that means that I have to get out into the streets and take pictures. My normal life sort of precludes that since I’m homeschooling much of the day and we don’t live very close to great street action. It’s something that I hope to work on though in 2017 – forcing myself to get out there.

In June of last year I was able to go to NYC for a street photography workshop held by Lynford Morton who leads Shutterbug Life. We went to several different areas of the city and he coached us on everything from tips on how to shoot to going up and talking to people. It was a rush for me, someone who doesn’t like confrontation or having people be mad at me. I loved it!

As I was processing my images, I could see a common trait on the faces and in the body language of the people in my pictures. As humans we tend to run ourselves ragged: body and mind. Both our bodies and brains need rest in order to rejuvenate and perform optimally. I think we’re all guilty of neglecting ourselves to some degree or another. Here are some of the shots of exhaustion that I captured.

  1. Thanks for sharing these photographs, Vicki. These are awesome street photos. I love exhaustion-3! There are so many stories in these images. You really have an eye for street photography, so I can only encourage you to go out and capture more of these stories of life. Need to check out the website of Shutterbug Life. Thanks for sharing these impressions! Marcus
