Good Friday 2016, Litchfield, Connecticut

Litchfield, Connecticut

Important day at Lourdes in Litchfield shrine, where visitors come from all over for the stations of the cross rituals.

I am always amazed at your 'crowd' photographs. How do you get so close and seem (at least to the crowd), not to be there? Clearly a violation of Heisenberg's Principle.

Well, quite seriously, I've been practicing for 50 years—Tina says I can disappear in a supermarket aisle.

Also, getting close is actually part of it. Stand back from a crowd with a big dslr and 70-200 zoom lens and *every person there* will assume you are taking a picture of him or her. Enter the crowd with a little GX7 and 14 or 17mm prime lens in your hands, stare intently into the distance past the crowd (or seem to) and everyone ignores you.
