My goal for this independent assignment was to capture the essence of Old Town Alexandria's King Street, a place where I have grown up loving. The aged beauty and character on every corner creates a place for all ages to enjoy with its unique building structures, great food, and talented street performers. I wanted to capture this, and specifically, the people who enjoy these aspects of King Street just as much as I do. During this project I was able to meet such interesting people that I was photographing and this made the project even more enjoyable. Something that I did struggle with, was working with some rude people who didn't want me to take pictures of them, and getting the correct exposure at nighttime. I was able to solve both of these problems with cooperation and trial and error. I overall really enjoyed this project because I was able to push myself to work to capture the essence of a certain place through photos of the pedestrians, which was not as easy as I thought it would be.
