Stranger among us.

People fascinate me.  That’s probably why I minored in psychology and continue to teach.  Half the reason I go to many of the street fairs that we have here in Salt Lake is to watch the people.  And of course I always bring my camera.

I take pictures of them.  I try to be subtle about it ‘cause I don’t want to make anyone uncomfortable, and I will not follow anyone to get a picture.  But I read somewhere that with surveillance cameras, traffic cameras and ATM cameras, urban dwellers can expect to be on camera a majority of time they are out in public, so I figure one more shot isn’t going to matter.

Anyhoo, I took this picture as I was walking back to my classroom from up on the 3rd floor.

Theme for this week: “Strangers among us.”  Click on the banner to see more great pictures and/or to join in the fun.

good capture - and what a lovely dog! His owner looks well wrapped up - is it perchance a little cool there? :)

Just a wee bit cold here. Ironically, it should warm up a bit after a cold front we're expecting comes through later today. It will clear out the inversion and allow the sun to actually make it into the valley again.

A dog just can't get any privacy these days.

Good shot - and a funny place to take a dog for a walk! Hope it leads to somewhere grassy
