I learned a valuable lesson today. I was in Martina Franca for the usual ‘3rd sunday of the month’ flea market and got there pretty early. Parked the car with my usual worry about getting it scratched, but as soon as i took my camera out, the mode was on. I immediately got in the mindset of “i’m here to take pictures not look for useless shit to buy” and boy did it serve well the purpose.
I immediately started chatting with the second seller as soon as i got in. Didn’t snap his picture but helped me get loose. And so it was and the output is the photos that follow. Felt easy… often fell off the rails, but able to get back on. No mesmerizing shots, but once i get the filter in that i like (Kodachrome Gold 100 +++) everything makes sense.
I like what i did today, and makes me want to do some more… i feel bad for not doing this more. It’s easy but sometimes i just lose sight of it. I wish i was this loose everytime i go out with my camera. Have to make sure i remember the mindset for the future.
