Another month has just about bitten the dust which means that it’s already time to submit some photos for P.J.’s monthly photo challenge. This month’s theme is “People” and I have to admit that taking pictures of people is a huge challenge for me. On one hand, there’s the issue of privacy and posting photos of strangers and friends. Then there’s this issue of our bustling city of 3 million people seemingly becoming a ghost town. Where have all the people gone? Are they all on vacation? Got swallowed up by a sinkhole? Are they afraid of the cold? The politics?
People. Can’t find them, can’t get them to sign the release form.
Anyhow, here’s what I got.
1. This was interesting and I’m glad that I happened to be walking by at that moment. This is also the last time I saw the sunshine. (Seconds after I took this photo, these feet rolled up and disappeared under the house, just like the Wicked Witch of the East’s did in that scene from The Wizard of Oz.)
2. And then it snowed. Footprints. A clear sign that people were here. I tracked them for awhile, hoping that they’d lead me somewhere warm. (Seconds after I took this picture, I was trampled by a herd of people.)
3. Them. Hey people. You just trampled me and now I can’t get up. (Seconds after I took this shot, I missed that bus).
4. Section of the Berlin Wall on display at the Intercontinental Hotel. This has everything to do with People and freedom etc. Oddly enough, immediately after taking this photo, I was asked to leave the building. Some people, huh? Ok, maybe they were closing.
5. Stragglers make their way down St. Paul St. It’s cold and it’s late. (Seconds after I took this photo, I went home).
Great! That wraps up another month. Now head on over to P.J.’s to see who else participated.
