Siouxland alleyways, Le Mars

16 Feb

When I teach people attending my photography classes at the local community college, I always try to impress upon them that they should look around when they photograph. Photography is seeing, and overcoming possible preconceived ideas of what they are looking to capture image-wise. The other day when it was nice out, that is warmer, I went for a drive and ended in Le Mars, Iowa. I walked around the small town for a bit, even down an alleyway or two. In small towns, there is not the feeling of trepidation one might have, understandably, as in a large city. And I found some interesting shadows on the backs of these downtown buildings. More interesting in that there were no trees lining the alleyway which I found more intriguing. Some nice hard afternoon light and it made for a nice image.
