THIS SCENE PACKS A LOT.
I count two dozen pumpkins, 28 flower pots, seven signs, one butterfly and one squirrel.
If I hadn’t photographed this sidewalk sale while traveling along Broadway in Rochester, I would have missed the details. The merchandise would have simply blurred in a flash of orange.
But now, well after my pass through this southeastern Minnesota city, I can study the photo, like examining the pages of an I Spy book. That’s the beauty of an image. Once you’ve shot it, you can return and appreciate what you’ve photographed.
And I always appreciate slices of everyday life preserved with the click of a shutter button.
FYI: I direct you to the work of Red Wing photographer Dan Traun. He’s especially gifted in documenting everyday scenes on the move. Click here to view Dan’s photos.
