Door to the Van Duzer Theater at Humboldt State University
Three of us decided to photograph the Humboldt State University campus this morning. We, correctly, figured that the campus would be empty this weekend, and that this would be our last chance to photograph prior to the influx of fall semester students.
I prefer to photograph buildings and landscapes sans people. I do, at times, photograph events, where the people are the subjects, but mostly, I am not that type of “street photographer.” I do admire the works of Vivian Maier, Atget, and Bresson, but I am not of the ilk to work busy streets. I like the pre dawn hours when there is slumber in the air and only a few early birds about.
