Photo Series 3 – The Commuters

The third in the series of photos of the commuting experience I see in Phoenix was published this morning on Flickr. It was fun getting this new set of pictures. There were about two months between series two and three, but I took almost 1500 photos, which I narrowed down to 65 which finally got down to the 41 posted. So yes, there a lot of photos I reject and not just because of technical issues. Sometimes I take a photo and in the end it’s just not interesting. I experimented with lighting on this round of photos. Any sunburst or unusual shadows you see in the photos are completely natural, no photoshopping in those effects.

I’m now halfway through the year and this project. You can see the full set of photos for this series here https://flic.kr/s/aHskzucpV9 and don’t forget to check out the other photos in the series as well as other set I have on my Flickr page.

About Reg Mizell

I still have the firebrand energy of my youth in the 70s and 80s. For a majority of my generation, mortgages, taxes, children and families had dampened our idealism for fighting the fight of the downtrodden and underclass and we look to our own families and significant others for what is practical. Like the Baby Boomers before us, we have lost the drive to fight, the drive to speak out because we worry about the repercussions to family and our social status. I can no longer sit on the sidelines and just observe the world. I can no longer try to speak to the better nature of ourselves while I see opposing voices spew hate and stir fear in our hearts. We must face the injustice, the inaccuracies and the falsehoods head on. My website Chaotic Fringe and my online venture GenX Noir Productions will be a forums for my eclectic tastes and a voice for my activism. I hope to never forget the voiceless and will not only speak for them but provide a forum where their voices can be heard. I will always provide frank and honest commentary about the world as I see it.
