I've put this series up because
of an article I saw at photos.msn.com
whose subject was Photo
Ops in the Most Unusual Places. One example was the alley.
Been there, done that. And will do it again and again. The learning
never stops. These photos were taken in January 1967 when I was
home on leave form the Marine Corps. My dad had sold me his old
Nikon F and I was still trying to learn the camera as well as
learning to become a better photographer. One of the lessons I
learned was to go out and photograph, photograph, photograph.
Another early lesson was that you first must known how to use
the normal lens before using wide-angles and telephotos. I rarely
use anything but the normal lens today. So this series was one
of my early attemps to create a photo-essay out of nothing. note:
The Veteran's Day Parade series
was probably one of the first stories I did with the Nikon F.
