Freeman's Mill with Jessica

Today Jessica and I went to Freeman's Mill Park in Lawrenceville to walk around and take some pictures. Here are some of the picture I took:

It was fairly busy, as you can see, but that's good, since what Jessica really likes to do--and I do too, as you can see above--is to sneak around and try to get surreptitious pictures of strangers without them knowing it (I know there's some redundancy in that phrase, "surreptitious" implying as it does "without them knowing it," but I'm sticking by it, dadgummit). It's often called street photography, and, as the Wikipedia entry says, it "features unmediated chance encounters and random incidents within public places," which basically means "surreptitious pictures of strangers," and also, "[s]treet photography does not necessitate the presence of a street or even the urban environment," which basically means these nosy pictures I took of people at a county park qualify as art, dadgummit.
