D146: Diversity

In Uncategorized on May 27, 2010 by Eric Kunimura Tagged: , , , , ,

Today’s Tasra365 ThemeThursday subject is Diversity.

My original idea for today’s image was to shoot out-of-focus down the middle of a crowded sidewalk in downtown Phoenix. My problem was that there just weren’t enough people passing by at one time even after waiting for 30mins. This was during my lunch break so I couldn’t wait around all day.  I opted for a group of people signing petitions. Today’s subject is somewhat fitting considering the current controversy over immigration in Arizona.

Faceless diversity all around you…

Today’s exercise was a lesson in being bold enough to stand in the middle of a city sidewalk and shot oncoming pedestrians without fear of being confronted. It was actually liberating.
