Faces at the Races

If you haven't done so check out my last post about the Emma Crawford Memorial Coffin Race in Manitou Springs, Colorado for background on this event.

Shooting interesting-looking strangers on the street usually presents a dilemma, and most of the time I forgo it due to obvious reasons. On this occasion, however, shooting anyone in sight was not only allowed, but almost expected…..great fun for the hundreds of us there with cameras!

Apparently this group got lost on their way back from Octoberfest!

Ummm…did the angel have some bad news for the devil??

Poor, sad Emma….

Perplexed little cowboy…maybe a bit young to understand all the excitement….

Weird. No. 2 character on right looks like a cross between Boy George and Ozzie Osborne w/bad teeth.

Wonderful set. I too usually back away from photographing strangers, so it is nice to have an occasion where it becomes a bit easier.

I have the same dilemma to shoot strangers in the street, so this event is just the right moment to catch interesting personalities. My fav. in this set are 5 and 7, this one with a very interesting edit.
