Recently, I've been having serious thoughts of actively directing myself in the direction of a Photographic Career. So I had a mini shoot of the only available human subject on a late Friday evening.
I shot these in my apt. parking lot in front of our dumpster. It was a little weird being in public taking shots of myself - it felt very vain. This feeling was quickly inhibited when a neighbor was cleaning for a move. He ended up throwing away a stereo - I didn't know then but it was completely busted. Well, not two minutes after he pitched it and walked away a couple who was waiting in our parking lot jumped in that dumpster and fished it out. They were young and determined. The girl went in semi-reluctantly and I don't think she every became quite comfortable with the goop she was wading in. Anyhow she came out, dirtier and smellier, but at least one (busted) stereo happier.
So the tidbit learned here: putting yourself in tough situations like, shooting pictures of yourself so the whole world can see can easily pay off with interactions you could have never expected.
