600 – Down the high street

At lunchtime today, I didn’t know that I was going to write about the high street, and so I didn’t take a picture. I’ve decided that for the time being I’m going to walk done the high street every day that I go out for a lunchtime walk.

I’m doing this because I want to get a feel for the heartbeat of the town centre. I walked it over the weekend , and even now I am seeing regulars and not just staff.

It’s very nice to see what for me is a busy street at lunchtime (there’s an argument to be had – is it really busy – but in comparison to 0600, oh yes it is). To start with most of the shops are open, of course there are the thirteen or so closed units which I must admit don’t really detract from the activity, perhaps that is because they are spread over the length of the street.

Of course there are the people, and I do enjoy people watching. Coupled really with my desire to do street photography. with a bit of luck it won’t take long for me to get on nodding terms with some people. I speak to a couple of the homeless people. I haven’t mustered the courage to ask if I can take their picture to blog, and I’d be quite interested in videoing them, but I don’t think that will happen somehow. But you never know.

It will also be interesting to see how the weather affects things, I certainly intend to continue to walk if the weather is bad – perhaps not every time, but certainly on a few occasions. Let’s see how things go.

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.
