699 – Street Photography

For a couple of reasons, I’m not able to put my DSLR on the tripod in the morning, and I’ve found that even now the light is going just a very very small bit, and that means that any long shots are blurred. It’s getting to the point where it’s not worth taking the camera out.

Instead then, I’ve started today carrying it at lunchtime. I walked down the high street with it, and I definitely got a few looks. People aren’t used to seeing big cameras. I suspect people might be thinking why bother with that if you have a mobile phone. I like it though.

I didn’t take any pictures as I walked down the street. I’m planning to do that regularly now. What I want to do is take pictures of the shop keepers, the idea being the 21st century equivalent of heavily posed Victorian shopkeepers, all lined up outside the shop. At some point if a shop keeper isn’t busy, I’m going to ask if I can take their pictures. Thing is though I need to get some business cards as I want them to see the picture on line.

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.
