When my good friend Jones came over from the States for a visit this last summer, I had the chance to do some tourism at home. Even though we explored the town in which I’ve worked for 8 years, I had the rare pleasure of seeing my surroundings in a way that I’m not accustomed. As a tourist. Not on my way to or from work, not walking around town on an ever-too-short lunchbreak. No schedule, whatsoever. It was a nice experience. I’ll have to do it again sometime.

Anticipation | The Lunchtime Portraits

I was worried that this dog would move before I could get my photo, …

Gazes | The Lunchtime Portraits

Passing down St Michael’s Street recently, I was struck by the intense mutual fondness in this staring contest, …

… all framed perfectly in the surrounding doorway. I figured that I probably wouldn’t get the shot without disrupting the scene, so I chanced asking directly whether they’d mind a photo. They not only did not mind, they also fell right back into the gaze.

Right on.

Footwear | The Lunchtime Portraits

As is often the case, I could see The Photo coalescing from down the street, …

Footwear I | The Lunchtime Portraits

… so having metered and set my camera on approach, I kneeled down in front of the couple, and took my photo. I was finished well before they noticed me and realized that I was holding a camera.

One thing that I frequently appreciate about a twin lens camera: it is naturally invested with a quality that causes people the desire to be photographed by it. They’re intrigued, perhaps, by its other-ness, where they might otherwise be put-off at the thought of being photographed by a strange SLR or something which they more immediately recognize as a camera.

Whatever the reason, though, a photographer likes a willing subject. This couple subsequently asked me to take a photo, so I happily asked them to just continue as they were doing.
