The Lyons Recorder
Last week started a new feature in the Lyons Recorder called iamlyonscolorado. It will be comprised of photos (and a few words) of people that Lyons resident Kenneth Wajda has captured during his daily travels around town. Wajda is an independent filmmaker who has made several short films in and around Lyons. Prior to moving to Colorado in 2001 he worked as a staff photographer for a daily newspaper, The Trenton Times, in New Jersey for thirteen years. Since then, in addition to making films, he has worked as a freelance photographer and still shoots editorial assignments, commercial jobs, portraiture, (family, engagement, senior, etc.) and teaches nature and street photography.
Wajda explains how the idea of iamlyonscolorado came about, “I enjoy shooting street photography, which I call “life” photography, because it is both great exercise and it’s like treasure hunting. It is quite fascinating how many moments cross your
path when your eyes are open to seeing them, and your camera is turned on, focused, exposure set and you have a finger at the ready on the shutter release. And how many you miss because you just weren’t in the right place or weren’t ready. That happens, too.”
Be sure to follow his weekly photos in the Lyons Recorder, and go to his website and view additional photographs at www.iamlyonscolorado.com.
