Not really an iconic view of this most famous tourist spot. It has been nearly four years since I took this photo and I always cringe a little every time I look at and think about the woman staring back at me; I feel like I got busted or something. Of all of the people moving about this space, she was the only one ( and the closest to me ) who spotted me and what I was doing. I should have asked her if she minded being in the photo, but….In profile, she looks much like someone I worked with many years ago. So, on a couple of levels this image has some weird mojo attached to it. I would really like to think she is a spy posing as a tourist, but that could be just my imagination working overtime.
This is my 1,500th posting on this blog. In Feb. 2008 I had no idea where I was going with this blog or if I had the discipline to keep it going for this length of time. So, befitting this moment I thought I would post a ‘self-portrait’ of myself ( in shadow form to maintain some sense of anonymity ) as well as a rainbow, which is symbolic of hope, possibility and perhaps a touch of magic.
Thanks to all of you who have supported this blog by checking in from time to time to see what is going on here. I had less than modest goals when I started posting and I’m really gratified by the response over these 1,500 postings. I’ve purposely let the images I post speak for themselves, with little or no narrative from me. Photography is a personal experience between the image and viewer. I see no point in interjecting my ‘experience’ between you and the image.
