I only got really interested in photography a little less than a year ago. I’ve taken more pictures since then, almost 9000, than in the previous 40 years. I’m especially fascinated by street photography—just wandering the streets of the city taking pictures of people and streets and buildings and how they all fit together.
Apparently, this is a bad time for it. Ever since 9/11, a lot of authoritarian types are suspicious of people taking pictures. Take a picture of a bridge or tall building or federal building and they get all excited and start yelling and threatening.
