Strangers??

This evening i was looking through photos of a trip i took.... Now most of these below are from my Hawaii trip besides the very last one which is the whole reason for my post. Which also got me thinking... These people i take photos of are strangers to me & yet i feel i can photograph them the way i feel they live their lives....
Now it may not really be how they are living them... its just a glimpse in their well in this case most likely not their every day lives because they are on vacation but everyone i come across seems not to mind...
I have & am still struggling with taking photos of people in their real lives... i feel like i am invading their space but yet i find like the photo above (it is from behind but it doesn't take a way from the softness) the way they hold each others hands. Its beauty to me...
Here is a different kind of beauty... its a simple long board leaning up against the wall... but the water in hte background & if you look at the expressions on peoples faces.... I dont know call me crazy or detail oriented... i enjoy analyzing things.
Ah... now the reason for the whole post Strangers... Before the movie came out this would have just been 3 people in a ford pick up but watching the Strangers & getting the creepy vibe as the family drove away in their pickup with a pamphlet on Christ. Gives this truck a whole new meaning.... Taken by my friend TJ on our trip to Austin.... still gives me a bit of the creeps but i love it! Do you ever try & look at things differently???
HAPPY TUESDAY!!
