This week I had an opportunity to visit Old Town Alexandria to plan out workshops for Penn Camera in 2012. It was a very nice drive from Baltimore. (I did leave after rush hour!)
After our planning session we walked around Old Town making images. I was using the Lensbaby fitted with the Star creative Aperture insert on the Composer. I enjoy street shooting with the Lensbaby. We made images of the beautifully decorated doorways and fun subjects we found along the way. I love the architecture of the old colonial townhouses, fitted with wrought iron and brass hand railings, shuttered windows and painted doorways.
As we walked the streets I spotted this little boy pressing his face upon the glass of a restaurant window.....I immediately ran over bent down and beagn making some images through the window, what a cutie he was and he loved the camera! I loved the way the creative insert created stars all around him as a result of the out of focus highlights in the background.
