Today was one of those days when I just felt like lugging my Leica for a long walk in Alexandria, but in no particular direction in mind. For starters, it was one of the nicest days we’ve had in a long time; a sunny day with temperatures that stayed in the low 50’s for a change. I also got an early start, as there’s something about the empty streets in Alexandria during the early morning hours that seriously appeals to me. First stop along the way: Misha’s coffeehouse and roaster. This is a busy place, with people vying for table space as if it were a DC bar on a busy Friday night. But it was precisely this busy atmosphere that got me thinking about this whole concept of photographic micro-scenes. Everywhere you looked, people seemed to be in their own micro worlds. Some read, some talked, and some listened. Photographic micro-scenes were everywhere, with people inadvertently posing by constantly altering their body language. It was all like watching a play with ever-changing scenes and characters. Everyday art in everyday lives.
