Along Southport, a friend and I decided to track down a large church steeple in the far distance. Along the way, my button finger began to itch and I had to start filling the card aimed at some interesting scenes along the way.
This image was one of my first stops. The framed “advert board” looking structure attached to this – let’s call it a – single family home. A pile of newspapers in front of the boarded up doors. It looked like the soul was removed years ago. Yet it had a stern magnetism to it. A sort of pull, that I couldn’t pass up.
So I squeezed between a pair of parked cars, doing my damnedest to fit a stable tripod in with me. I found this – at first – a very unpleasant moment to have the 50mm “fixed” attached, but quickly following this thought… the minivan to my left lit up. Politely backing away with the camera in hand I allowed them safe passage to their destination.
I now, couldn’t be more pleased. Freedom… I began to snap a few different angles, yet spent most the time getting distracted then abruptly dodging a car, or cars. Surprisingly, the nearest point proved to be the most satisfying shot and led to no hit-and-runs occurring for this specific position.
