I normally hadn’t thought to turn back and take pictures of people at different overlooks, instead preferring to just capture the landscape. But, after walking away a bit and turning back, I realized that capturing the people admiring the overlook might make an interesting photo. It provides a nice sense of scale, and can allow more pictures to be taken at a place you thought you had exhausted.
Their hair colors went pretty nicely with the buildings and rock outcroppings, too.
At one end of Stillwater is a steep stairway you can walk up. It takes you to the top of a bluff that overlooks the town, and just beyond is a nice quiet neighborhood you could walk around in to escape the hustle and bustle of downtown. I have gotten most of my higher shots of Stillwater from up there.
This is Part 2 of a collection of black-and-white photos taken in Stillwater. Part 1 is at A Day in Stillwater. All of these photos were taken on the same day, for a photography assignment where I was supposed to mimic the style of Berenice Abbott.
