Bronx Walk: Around The Neighborhood | July 20, 2014
It was a beautiful day today, so I decided to walk around my neighborhood and take some photographs. You know, the Bronx has obtained such a bad reputation over the last 3 or so decades. However, the Bronx (like so many other boroughs) is rich with culture and life! Construction workers working hard, Yankee fans, children, guys playing sports, landmarks, interesting trash (yes I find beauty even in garbage), all within a couple of hours in a very small section of the Bronx. Anyone that thinks the Bronx has no photo opportunities is sadly mistaken. One thing I have noticed though, there does seem to be slight difference in experience when photographing up in the Bronx. Every once in a while, I’d notice a couple of Manhattenites run away when they see someone with a big camera LOL. However, most Bronx people really don’t care, we live our lives normally as though the camera wasn’t there (for the most part). Which is a good thing. I enjoyed taking pictures of my neighborhood; I’ve actually forgotten how colorful it actually is. Then again, I’ve realized that once you start taking photographs of your neighborhood as a photographer, you see everything differently; you start to notice things you never knew before. By the way, I want to remind newbie photographers that photographs with logos are for personal use only (for such use as a blog); and cannot be sold or submitted in any art gallery.
