These are photos I took during the 2013 Anchorage, Alaska 4th of July celebration. We have interesting people in Anchorage and most were smiling on this day. The Park Strip in downtown Anchorage had several thousand people walking around eating, visiting, sunning and listening to music. Kids make good subjects since most like being photographed.
I try to be discreet, but sometimes it is distracting for people to have a telephoto lens on a monopod pointed at them. If an individual lets me know (their eyes) they do not want to be photographed I do not take an image. I will remove any photograph upon request by contacting me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
