Photography 101: Swarm

It’s a swarm! Show us something that overruns your scene, but observe and compose carefully before you click the shutter.

Swarm: to fly off together in a group, as bees; to move about in great numbers, as things or persons.

Don’t just point and shoot. Observe your scene closely before pressing the shutter. Spend time watching and planning your frame, so that you can take a photo that captures a unique moment in the larger scene. –The Daily Post

This morning, a lot of the normal swarming was rather calm.  Maybe its the cold weather and people are taking the subway or walking in the intricate underground passages that Montreal is so awesome for. I don’t have that luxury and as I scanned my area, there is one thing in abundance other than the gravel on the sidewalks, its shoe prints in the snow. The passerbys that have walked the same path that I have at some point during the evening, night, morning.  Whatever time of day it is, there is someone who traced the same path that I did.

Scattered and could be more abundant but thats the best I could do with the limited amount of snow on the ground.  Not exactly swarming but if the snow didn’t melt on part of the sidewalk, it would be more along the lines of what I need. 😉
