Shooting for pleasure (9 pics F30, s5 Pro)

A friend found two commentaries on my photos, and forwarded them to me:

"All he did was walk around photographing things in his life with no concern for being a 'photographer'... " Exactly right. I'm doing all these for pleasure!

"(He is) looking to observe existence, with some wit, and a light touch... " These are pretty accurate except that I'm not too sure if I have the wit... it also explains why I have never been interested in planned, arranged or manipulated photographs.

A few recent snapshots... just trying to enjoy myself in observing the existence of my everyday life, with a light touch, and hopefully with some wit...
