Ludwig’s Monday Window Challenge: September 26, 2022

Creepiness can persist even in broad daylight, whether filtered through a curtained window, or under the intrusive nursing home light. Who’s baby doll is that? Why is it alone? Where’s its mommy? But look, someone is in the other bed! It’s just a tiny bulge under a crisp linen sheet.

Street Photography

For many years, I used to roam the streets of Hollywood, asking random people if I could photograph them. My standing rule was that once I got ten refusals, I’d quit for the day. I’d easily garner a dozen photos a day because, after all, it was Hollywood. Now that I’m back on the East Coast, I’ve had to tone down that pursuit because, frankly, people here are much more uptight and ten “no’s” come quick and fast. People here in Maryland are by nature very suspicious. They are convinced that I’ve got some nefarious plan to do something evil with their image, like post it on the internet.

That being said, over the course of a couple of years here in Maryland, I’ve managed to capture a few candid shots of people. Here’s an example.

This photo dovetails nicely with Travel With Intent’s One Word Sunday Challenge. This week the word is steps. Thanks for letting me join in the fun!

Ludwig’s Monday Window Challenge: May 9, 2022

It’s those mysterious attic windows that always capture my attention. What’s up there? I wonder. Is there a lost Rembrandt? Abraham Lincoln’s Civil War diaries? There could be anything up there! What are your secrets? I’d like to know.
