336/366 Street Photography in a small town

If you read up on street photography the famous street photogaphers produce books of fantastic locations in incredibly lovely situations, and the photos are invariably excellent. I’m sure that if they put their mind to it, they would produce some excellent Street Photography in a small Town.

YouTube is a really interesting resource. I accidentally found a selection of videos about exactly this topic. I think one question is; does a population of 80,000 make Gosport a small town? I’ve just done a check, and no it isn’t. A town with a population of over 75,000 people is classed as large, so we are just over the medium/large threshold.

I was going to ask an inane question about where do artists find their inspiration. Please don’t think for one minute that I think of myself as an artist, I most definitely do not. But things interest me. I lack the imagination. I just don’t “see” things in an artistic way, any photo I have taken and like is almost certainly taken accidentally, and I really don’t understand where this liking of street photography comes from, especially, when I really don’t want to do it, because I am embarrassed to raise my camera in a public place and take pictures of people. I suppose I am running out of excuses in that area if my phone is my camera. Everybody is doing it now, pretty much.

Back to Street Photography In a Small Town; Obviously, Gosport is not the same as London, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t opportunities. Perhaps I should go for a walk in the evenings, there would certainly be more people around. But as the picture at the head of the article is supposed to show (not very well I’m afraid) it is perfectly possible to take B&W pictures in a small town. Why shouldn’t they include people? It’s clearly a thing with me isn’t it? I have written on this topic in several (possibly many) previous posts over 366, why aren’t I doing more about it? My own conservatism (with an extremely small ‘c”)?

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
