It was a great assignment; spend the morning capturing The Mall on its 30th birthday. As always, I would have loved to spend more time with this, but here are several of the reportage style street photographs I was able to capture that morning to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the 16th Street Mall.
Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, a candidate for the Republican presidential nomination, spent some time in Colorado recently. I spent some time photographing some of that time. Below are some of the more visually interesting photographs.
A few photographs from a short afternoon documenting the Occupy Denver “day of action” protest as they moved from the City and County building through downtown periodically stopping traffic on busy streets and blocking major intersections.
The Barns Dance is no longer in Denver. I raced downtown just in time to photograph a city worker covering the very last of these diagonal pedestrian crossing signals. My task was to show the end of this diagonal crossing era, and maybe what these Barnes Dance intersection crossings, that originated here in Denver, actually are.
Basically, interesting pictures of people crossing the street.
This is an ideal story to illustrate with reportage style photography. I looked for different angles, made arrangements to go back with a crew later in the evening and spent some time walking the streets of downtown Denver enjoying the occasion to do some traditional street photography.
