I went back this morning to some negatives I shot in the warmer weather. This elderly gentleman touched my heart last August. He stopped, put his gear down, fed a flock of birds near the park, and went on his way. I was afraid initially that the Nikkor 35mm focal length on my Nikon F2S might not be “long enough”. But in terms of capturing a moment, and showing the environment? It worked. The film was Ilford FP4 Plus.
I attempted to stay near him, stay ready, as I knew sooner or later, they would be hungry again.
He did tell me that he is in the park regularly, and likes to stop and feed birds and other little animals. Really hoping to do some more street photography when the weather warms up. It truly can be a lot of fun, and very rewarding. Hoping to make new friends and acquaintances with this wonderful passion, photography. The cold weather has lasted long enough.
