Little Guy Just Wants Some Donuts

Buffalo NY,HDR,Street Photography 24 September 2010 | 1 Comment

When I was in Buffalo this summer, I went on a long photo walk the day of the wedding while the girls got their hair done and posed for photos with the bride. My first stop was that famous Canadian purveyor of coffee and donuts, Tim Hortons. I sat down near a window with my OJ and pastries and started reviewing some photos I’d taken earlier, when this perky little boy walked by with his mom. As soon as she sat down on a bench and looked away, he ran over to the window, pressed his face up against the glass to look inside, saw me, and started mugging for the camera. I snapped a few pics and then finished the rest of my high-calorie breakfast. Maybe the little dude was just craving some donuts like I was?

The man in this picture was actually the operator of the merry-go-round. He seemed to be in generally good spirits while admitting the other riders, but once the world is flying by in front of your eyes, who knows where one’s thoughts will go? I imagine you’d find this same gaze on dozens of passengers staring out the windows of any given train, but the context of this scene adds meaning through its juxtaposition. This was tough to shoot because of the slow shutter speed and the motion of the ride, and it’s mostly luck that I was able to get the timing right to capture his expression. Even then you can see that his feet and legs are blurring, although I find that works favorably for this image as it seems he’s becoming a part of the ride itself.
