Holding Hands

I was back at Rittenhouse Square this past Sunday. It was one of my favorite spots to shoot candid street shots, and this is the perfect example why: you never know what you're going to see. I had to rush to take their shot, as they were walking pretty quickly, but I was lucky enough to be able to center them well in the frame. I'm also glad my camera was able to focus quickly, because it would have been such a waste had this shot been blurry.

Tibet Protest Outside the UN

I was in New York City, taking photos outside the UN. I've been there before, but haven't witnessed a protest with this many people involved. It was a good opportunity for me to take journalistic style photos. This was my favorite shot of the set, mostly because of this person's look at the camera.
