High Point | Sunset
I know I’m a yankee, and worse, a Buffalonian, but I have a lot trouble understanding old southern dudes when they speak. This guy played songs as I took pictures of him and I finally realized, after much nodding on my part, that what he was saying was the songs cost money. As luck would have it I had a few bucks in my purse. I don’t know what would have happened if I didn’t have the money, because I had already heard the songs, and it’s not like you can give back a tune. He made nice music, I made a nice picture, and we shook hands before I left. Good dude.
P.S. The 24mm prime from school is my new favorite.
Big John’s Hot Dogs | Fairfield Rd & 62 | Archdale, NC
Yeah, I got a hot dog, and it was good. I don’t know what implored me to buy one, but it hit the spot. I got mustard, onions, slaw and hot sauce. Who knows why I chose that particular combination of toppings; normally I’m a ketchup and mustard girl. It was really good, though.
Our teacher is always talking about how layers in a photo help make it more interesting. The more I think of that when I look at pictures, the more I notice how true it is. A guy standing under a tent selling hot dogs (i.e. the rest of my pictures from the hot dog stand) is not inherently an interesting picture and not layered at all. When Big John walked over to his truck to get me his card, I immediately noticed his reflection in the rear view and I knew I had a better picture. I wish I would have worked it a little more, maybe getting him handing me the hot dog. It was hard, though, because I really just wanted to eat the hot dog.
Clara Eggleston, 16, right, relies on her camera phone and her friend Bethann Odell, 17, to check her teeth for red lipstick as they wait outside the Greensboro Coliseum before the Taylor Swift concert in Greensboro, NC on September 12, 2013. The girls were dressed in red for the sold-out Greensboro show, known as the Red Tour.
