The man on the Beach

Indiana National Dunes - July 2013

Street photography on the beach. Back in July, I had a good hour to kill (that’ll teach me to cross into another timezone without compensating my departure time). So I took the chance to check out the National Lakeshore, the Indiana National Dunes State Park, and one of the beaches. As it was a hot day, plenty of people were out and about. However, this man I found this the most interesting. He was sitting rather far away from the general crowds, happy to read. He did notice the crazy photographer (that’s me) with the odd camera (Rolleiflex) and kept staring at me, probably hoping that I would leave after getting the dune shot behind him. Little did he know (or maybe he did) that I was lining up the shot of him. And then it was my turn to wait; I didn’t want him looking at me or my camera. and I just kept the camera steady, waiting for the moment he was distracted and looked away; I got my shot and walked on.
