Windows in San Francisco

During a recent visit to San Francisco with a few friends to see the Garry Winogrand exhibit at SFMOMA, we strolled through a few nearby streets and alleys, inspired by Winogrand’s vision, to try our hands at a little street photography. Winogrand photographed people directly, and often the subjects were unaware they were being photographed. That’s not my strong suit, and one has to do it with more care these days than in Winogrand’s time.

But my favorite images from that day are of windows with their reflections—things partly seen, both indoors and out—in complex “found” collages.
