Picasso - Dora Maar

I wasn't sure how I would feel about 12 days of alone time an ocean away from home -- would I be lonely? Truthfully, I had this great feeling of solitude -- and I wanted to protect that. I was happy to talk to strangers when the opportunity arose, and there were moments of connection that were surprising and precious to me, like going for a walk with a Parisian man, who led me up the stairs at Shakespeare & Company, where we sat on one of the narrow beds to listen to a young woman play the piano. "To me, this is Paris," he said simply, when she lifted her hands from the keys. But being in two cities where I knew no one at all gave me a tremendous amount of freedom, and I did turn down several invitations that would have eaten away at that solitude when I wanted to soak it in.

I'm working on pulling together a photography website and am trying to build a list of the kinds of images that I try to find and create... here's what I've got so far, with some Instagram illustrations, not the highest quality (and some questionable filter choices) but the easiest to pull into an LJ post:
Street art and edits to the urban landscape; people interacting with art; reflections (not seeing the thing itself); wear and tear/decay; protests; idea versus execution, especially with regard to use of public spaces; discards/cast-offs; silhouettes; hands; spaces where one culture shades into another; being alone in public; inequality made visible; makeshift monuments and shrines.
Plus the general creeping to which photographers are inclined. And I love taking pictures of people taking selfies.
