This week’s P52 prompt was Street Photography. Now, I am very much an introvert. Street photography scares me to death. Unfortunately, this week has also been incredibly rainy. The few opportunities I had to get out of the house, it was pouring. So I had to break down & use a shot from the archives.

I grew up near Metropolis, IL, which proudly claims to be the Metropolis. You know, of Superman fame. And every year this tiny Metropolis holds the Superman Festival. It’s kind of like a mini Comic-Con. And these people are serious about their Superman fetish. There’s a big street fair and all kinds of costume awards. It is actually really fun. This shot is from a couple of years ago when we crossed the river to mingle with the superheroes.

I loved how they were all posing for the crowd full of photographers. I think there might have been a newspaper photographer setting this shot up, but they got the full-on paparazzi treatment, so I focused on the crowd instead of the . . . Justice League?

Sidenote: Do you see that guy on the back row that is black & white? I swear I didn’t do that and it’s kind of freaking me out. Was he wearing makeup to look like that? I wish I remembered!

Next on the blog circle this week is Michele. Go check out her street photography & leave her some love! Thanks for stopping by!

      Thank you Kristy! We don’t get to go every year, unfortunately. It tends to fall during our beach vacation. But I do love to get some shots on the years we are able to go.
