I had a hard time with this assignment. It’s very difficult to photograph Strangers without them noticing.
It’s also difficult to pretend you are not photographing them, when you really are.
For this reason, there are no people in my photo.
I was afraid I would be arrested for stalking strangers with a camera, so I decided to leave them out.
Recently, I came across a Grandfather and his two grandchildren feeding the ducks at the lake.
They were having so much fun.
The little boy would throw his bread in the water and squeal with delight every time the duck ate it.
When it came time to go home, he didn’t want to leave.
“But Grandpa, the ducks will be lonely without me!”
Such sweet words from a stranger to a duck he had never met before.
The ducks were out tonight, but the family was not. I can’t blame them.
It was cold and windy on the lake today. Not a good day for a walk on the shore.
The ducks were out though, looking for bread crumbs from strangers.
I wish I had brought some so we could become friends.
Maybe next time.
