When being patient pays off

Oregon small town documentary photography by Cliff Etzel

I’ve driven by this spot so many times without giving it a second thought.

Recently I drove by and saw the potential for an image and knew I needed to come back and wait for that decisive moment. In a spur of the moment decision, I went back on a day when it had stopped raining. Waiting patiently, I watched as people passed through what I had previsualized and composed.

When I saw the colors in this subjects top, I knew my patience had paid off. I snapped 3 images and this one stood out to me.
