My First Attempt at Street Photography (Small Town Alabama Street Photography)


Last Saturday our small town had an Octoberfest.  There were over 70 vendors!  I couldn’t believe the turn out.  It was very crowded.  I’ve always wanted to do “street photography”, but I don’t live in a big city with lots of action on the streets AND I’m super nervous about taking pictures of strangers.  Yes, I know with photography you photograph “strangers”, but not really.  You get to know them a little before and a lot during the shoot.  This is me taking pictures of people without their permission.  It feels odd.  Luckily I live in a town of “good ol’ country boys and girls” and they didn’t seem to notice mind.  I only got a few “blog worthy shots” and you might not even think they are worthy of that! lol  Anyways here goes…

 This is our bike trail (Chief Ladiga) we love it!  It’s very long, it goes all the way to Georgia.  It’s a perfect place to bike with the family or just stroll around.  It’s definitely one of the reasons we love this town!

 There was live music at the festival, and this guy just couldn’t get enough of it.  I love that he looked my way right when I took this shot.

Caught again!  This lady had a beautiful singing voice!  I really enjoyed the music, the perfect compliment to my southern style bbq pork sandwich I enjoyed.

These guys were loving their nachos!  You can see a different perspective when you get down to street level!

Lots of bbq smokers out making yummy lunch for us to enjoy.  The pulled pork sandwich was the best I ever had!

We brought this little guy home with us.  A local artist makes concrete statues and birdbaths.  I thought he’d look right at home in our flowerbeds.  I can’t decide if I want to paint each part of him,

or spray paint him all the same color.  Like this:

I think the “all over color” makes him look more modern…what do you think?

So there you have it, my first attempt at “street photography”, not really though. 🙂

This is a story of two lovebirds who got in a little over their heads, or at times it feels that way, remodeling a little home built in the 1940's. Our journey has bumps and twists, ups and downs, but we wouldn't have it any other way! Please join us and our two poodles as we flip this old house and work towards the adoption of our first child!
