Today I am grateful to all of the people who let me take photographs of them and their stalls. Especially the nice lady smiling amidst the hardware and the pretty haberdasher who shares my obsession with feathers. It’s a patriotic place.
I love lights. Tea lights, fairy lights, traffic lights, Christmas lights, Northern lights. Lights. Lamps, candles, chandeliers. Symbolic or literal, photons are magical. So I felt compelled to take a shot of this display at House of Fraser today.
I took some photos this evening, but I was struggling with my inhibitions about photographing in public and poor light. Here are some street lights I love in the city centre of Birmingham. What are your experiences with starting to take photographs in public spaces? Did you feel self-conscious or paranoid that some security guard would move you along?
