The parks of Sofia are not the only outdoor gathering places that draw a crowd of interesting people. This weekend I took some time Saturday afternoon to walk down to the National Palace of Culture (NDK) in Sofia. I was lucky enough to come across a skateboard/spray-paint/music event. I sat down and started shooting just off to one side of the skateboard ramp when a friendly photographer called Diko approached me. He is in the background of one of the pictures below actually. We had a great conversation about photography and I captured some of the images that you see here. You can see some of Diko's work HERE. Summer in Sofia is such a great time to get out and just be part of the crowd.
Camera Note: The focus on these is a little soft and I'm quickly realizing the limitation of the 40D. The more I shoot, the more I become convinced about the merits of purchasing the 5D mark III when it comes out ... I'm just wondering how much of a dent it is going to put in my pocket. Yikes! Hobbies are expensive.
