Do you want to know what gives me a little jolt of happiness and fulfillment? Capturing people in their natural, day to day lives. Maybe it's the voyeur in me, but it feels like an opportunity to look past your own life and get to know someone else, even for a fleeting moment. These kind of pictures are what made me fall in love with photography, and what I always thought I'd be doing. Not a great way to pay the bills, but it sure enriches me in other ways. So, sit back and enjoy a little peep show (of the wholesome kind).

I am loving these pictures. Thank you for sharing your talent. I'm curious . . . do you ask people if you can take their picture, are you sneaky about it or just snap the pictures?

Thanks Shannon! I did ask the hot dog man and the gold man, the others I just took as I walked. Some I took at bellybutton level, discreetly. Others I just blatantly took without really caring what people thought. No one seemed to mind.
