Colorado Dreamin’

Colorado-Dreaming

Happy New Year!  I hope that you are looking forward to 2019; I know that I am!

This is going to be my last http://www.fivefeetsquare.com blog post.  I am so grateful to all who have followed me, liked and commented on my images, throughout the years.   I will continue to share my travel photography on Instagram – https://www.instagram.com/barbarayoungleson/    I hope to see you there.

I love the words of Helen Keller: “life is either a daring adventure or it is nothing.”  I know that adventure awaits, even if it’s in my own back yard.

Amelia Island

Moody-Island

She’s feeling a little ‘moody’ today.  But you know what they say about a bad day at the beach . . .

Amelia Island Mood

Often the mood of a scene can best be expressed in black and white.  Can you feel the drama and the stillness?

Sayabashi Bridge

This beautiful wooden bridge with a roof and arched like a sword, crosses the Kanakura River which flows through the town of Kotohira, Japan.

New York Street Photography-3

Neglecting to remain on your side of the bridge is life threatening!  Of course, it’s very easy to veer to the ‘wrong’ side of the Brooklyn Bridge walk-way.  Sometimes you encounter a biker who is just bigger than life and you know that you and your camera are treading on very dangerous (wrong-way) ground.

Brooklyn Bridge Park

This waterfront park along the East River in New York City provides unique, street photography opportunities.

Street Photography – It’s About the Connection

Street photography is so much more than capturing people passing through your field of vision. There are emotions and messages around every corner.  Connect with them!
