I’m afraid to shoot people on the street. One of them might notice me and speak to me, and my fear is that what they say will be negative: “Hey, I don’t want you to take my picture. Stop that.” It’s happened to me. I hated it.
I’m such a loner, such an introvert. I really just want to keep to myself. But when lots of people have their cameras out in a crowd, my camera and I effectively become invisible and I can openly and fearlessly photograph people. The Brooklyn Bridge was crammed with people and cameras when we visited. I was able to get a couple shots of the people themselves. This is my favorite. Because what’s the point of a bridge if there are no people to cross it?
