a face in the crowd

The Weekly Photo Challenge asks us to “explore the use of anonymity to express both that which is common to all of us and the uniqueness that stands out even when the most obvious parts of us are hidden. Just as all of us can oscillate between conformity and individualism, allow your photo to do the same.”

Here are some photos of anonymous people in crowds I’ve encountered in my travels.

variations on a theme: vintage signs on the jersey shore

The WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Variations on a Theme challenges us to find the endless variety that one thing can contain.  Here is my take on vintage signs on the Jersey Shore.  These were taken in winter, when most of the places were quite deserted.
