There are quite a few happenings that I cover every year, and some of them, such as Swinging Summer Thursdays in West Chester happen a few times each year. After 15 years at this it becomes hard to find something new. While I don't remember every shot I've taken, I do know how my eye works analyzing a situation. I am mentally thinking about not going to the same lens/angle/subject more often than not. I guess admitting you have a problem is the first step in correcting it.
After about the third year on this job I realized I actally am part of the commmunity. I spend as much time saying hello to people as I do shooting. This image was made while catching up with a woman I hadn't seen since before the boy was born. Time does fly! I have some funny moments when Addison is open mouthed for her taffy, but I just love the randomness of this frame. I don't know exaclty what it is, but it is an intangible quality I love other people's images. I know it when I see it. (As I quote out of context Potter Stewart.)
