I went feature hunting the other day and ending up going back to what caught my eye originally.
After driving into work early so that I could get a haircut up the street, I got lost and had to make a U-turn. When I did, I saw a old man selling apples in his front yard. I thought it would be a simple feature.
Later in the day, I was sent out. I thought of going back, but I decided to maybe save it for another day since last month I shot in an apple orchard.
Well, after finding a pumpkin patch with no one there, I went back and glad I did.
He has about 20 bushels for sale daily and said he just likes talking to his customers, many who were returns. Just a nice man.
While I don't really like shooting a portrait of someone for a daily feature, he pretty much sat there in the sun as the day was rather cold. It was better than anything I had of help selling apples to customers.
Now I just can't shoot anything apple related for features. I'll add it to my "Don't shoot features of..." list; which includes: fishers, bicyclers, runners...
