    Your post has come at the perfect time for me, as I was practicing being a tourist in my town yesterday and today. Today I stopped into a pharmacy and lunch counter that is a kind of institution in our city. And though I’ve lived here practically all my life, I had never set foot in this place before. I had my camera out and once I knew I could take pictures inside, something great happened to me. I began to interact with the employees and customers. This is not something I very often do. But it enabled me to get a better feel for the place, and I also took a lot more pictures than I would have otherwise felt comfortable doing.

    After having two great days of exploring (and seeing the photographs come to life on my computer), I had decided to continue being a hometown tourist throughout the summer and maybe beyond. Now you are inspiring me to start talking to more people and hopefully incorporating some human images into the mix. The worst they can say is no.

    Thanks for the great post.
