Good Morning, Lancaster

A downtown walkabout

LANCASTER, OHIO — I stepped out of my hotel room shortly after 7 a.m., camera slung over my shoulder. Found a pot of coffee and carryout cups in the lobby — Priceless!

Speaking of Paul Simon. For some reason, when I saw this sculpture high above the street, the song “Save the Life of My Child” came to mind.

  1. Lots of good photography here. The best way to get better is to spend more time wandering around with no goal other than good photos, which is hard to schedule.

    City photos have more opportunities per (unit of distance) than the countryside, so it is better hunting, but sometimes you run into people who get testy about photography. Even though you are both standing on a public sidewalk, they insist there is some privacy law that doesn’t exist for public spaces. And if that doesn’t work, they pull out the trump card – why are you taking pictures of kids? Are you some kind of pervert?

    Even though you protest that any kids who might accidentally been in the shot were too far away to be recognized, that “taking kids pictures” accusation is enough to cause you big problems. Tip – be careful to not include kids in your photos, at any distance. Even though you have the right, the hassle is not worth it.

    I’m not saying that any of the photos above have kids – but there are people inside windows. I have had people accuse me of “peeping inside houses” if I posted photos that showed people, even their backs. I now blur out all people when I post photos of people in windows
