Starting a New Project?...

Well, I should be done shooting my "Memory Project" (still a working title), as my parents are fully moved into their new home. But I'm not quite ready to be sequencing that project and working out how those images are all going to go together. I may START doing that, but I think it will take me a while to figure this all out.

In the meantime, I've been thinking about starting a project in the Midway Neighborhood of St. Paul. Midway gets it's name because it's about midway between the 2 downtowns (Minneapolis and St. Paul). There seem to always be a lot of people in transition in Midway, and I think that will become my subject.

I figured the 4th of July was just as good of a day as any to start "scouting" for this project. So I headed out with my camera to make some photographs. I only got 2 mediocre images before the sky opened up and rained me out. This first image is a fitting way to start a project on the 4th of July, right?

"Perkins Flag with Storm Clouds on the 4th of July"

"Selling Michael Jackson Memorial T-Shirts"

These aren't great shots. I didn't even know if I wanted to put them up here. But I want to make myself get going and work on this project.

I need to just go out and shoot. A lot. A LOT a lot. Here we go......
