fire

 

For some reason, I always find myself photographing these things. Fire-eaters, men on stilts, clowns, all sorts of oddball activity. I have been photographing this woman for a few years. She appears regularly at a street festival very art Friday in the Northwood section of West Palm Beach. Since I have taken her photo on a number of occasions, we sometimes talk. She tells me that it is only a hobby with her but it is really something she likes to do. I doubt she is getting rich at it but she finds it satisfying. I think that is what it is all about—finding something you like doing and just practicing and getting better at it.

For myself, it is all about being a photographer. For others who knows but I hope it is something.
