Shopping trips for groceries and other things can provide a rich lode of things to photograph. from parking lot markings to produced and products.
Wandering the streets of NYC is always so engaging with the colors, structures, shadows and people.
Sometimes looking down can be exciting because of the “found art” on the street and ground.
When I Catrike about I look for things to photograph and the flowers frowing around y neighbor’s mail box and just the pavement px make me happy.
Sort of aimless wandering is one of my favorite occupations in NYC and Alice is very patient with my wanderings, even when we get to B&H. I did get an ultra wide zomm lens there which I used a lot on this trip.
The pavement is frequently like an artist’s canvas with good things happening there including stripes,reflections, raindrops, forms and shadows. The pavement is a place to find great stuff.
Occasionally I will look down and see things that work for me like the grass clippings snaking their way to the storm sewer grating,the round, blue water cap and finally the fading flowers in the pot. Looking down is not necessarily a “downer”.
