chrissessions There have only been a few times that I've been 'busted' for taking pictures and this was one of those days. This was a few years ago. I was in Denver with some time to kill while waiting for my film to be processed at the lab. I'd recently gotten a new lens for my 5x7 camera and wanted to do a few tests with it. I spotted this cool car on the street, pulled over and started taking a few shots with the digital, trying to find the best angle for my large format shots. I was there maybe 5-10 minutes. I got the tripod out, the camera set up and the film holders ready when I heard the front door of the house open. I was in a bit of a dodgy area near I-70 and the houses had iron grates and steel screen porch doors so I was on my guard a little bit I suppose, but it was still somewhat of a surprise when I heard the voice of a woman ask 'WHAT ARE YOU DOING OUT THERE?' With my big honkin' camera pointed at the car, I figured it was fairly self explanatory but I answered lightly, 'taking pictures of this cool car out here!' My warmth was no match for her upset however. 'WHY DO YOU WANT A PICTURE OF THAT OLD CAR? YOU SHOULD HAVE ASKED FIRST... YOU'VE BEEN OUT THERE FOR 10 MINUTES, HAVEN'T YOU GOT ENOUGH?' Fumbling over my words, I was gradually somehow able to calm her down enough to explain my plight and get permission to expose a couple sheets of film. Trying to be fair, I'd given her my card with my information and told her that I'd drop off a print sometime. She'd gone back inside while I took the pictures but right as I was getting packed up and ready to go, I heard her call out my name from inside the house, 'CHRIS!!!... CHRIS!!!...' I put my stuff in the car and walked over towards the house. She was holding out her telephone, motioning that it was for me. It was her son and he was pissed! So once again, I had to explain the situation that I wasn't out to exploit anyone or their property--that I was there simply to take a picture of this classic car as a lens test and for ART. Much like his mother, the son was quite a challenge to calm down as well but soon enough I was free to move along throughout my day. Ah, the life of a creative... 2d

chrissessions 'It only lasts a few seconds, but still it's a kind of peak flow experience, something I've experienced many times on a skateboard, where all sense of time drops away, inducing a sense of euphoria combined with intense focus...' from 'the great floodgates of the wonderworld,' by Justin Hocking. Shaggy doing a frontside air while Science Fair looks on. Full pipe just outside of Boulder. From the #chrissessionsphotography archive. @davepalmerposse @grindlinetheband @justinhocking 2w
