This week’s Photo Challenge is about showing people at their everyday activities. Here are some images of people in everyday situations (to them, I believe) which looked pretty cool (to me).
These men paused to talk in Manhattan, at the Staten Island Ferry plaza. Old friends who took different directions? Or strangers rehashing a Yankees game?
This man is painting an ad on the side of a building in lower Manhattan on a freezing cold day in January. His precision was amazing. He wore big headphones – blocking noise? Listening to a song about mischief?
I don’t think they had any idea how beautiful their choreography looked from above. Taken from the High Line, NY.
A Buddhist nun and her friend buy flowers at Pike Place Market in Seattle. Very possibly an everyday activity for them – but to my eye a delicious image. (Too bad it was taken on the run with the phone).
An ice storm closed Sea Tac Airport in Seattle. When it finally re-opened there was lots of work to do. An ordinary day for them – just keeping us from falling through the air from an unacceptable height.
Everyday for them, joy for me. Street musicians in downtown Philadelphia.
Cutting stems for a bouquet at Pike Place Market. Another day for her, but for me – well, almost a Pre-Raphealite moment.
