I was headed to Aldrich’s for lunch when I passed this lovely young woman and her family. I was struck by the colored yarn she had braided into her dreadlocks. It turns out that she does that professionally. It shows.

She graciously let me make a photo of her. He baby didn’t seem interested in the whole process. Her guy headed to the store.

Yesterday was the 104th anniversary of the birth of Henri Cartier-Bresson, one of the more famous street photographers. In memory of his birth here’s a street photo. He is well known for coining the phrase: ‘the decisive moment,’ from the book of the same title. Another of his sayings was, “In photography, the smallest thing can be a great subject,” perhaps even dressing a hot dog.
