Are you taking my photo?

Another street shot on another crossing whilst shooting with Homer Sykes in Portobello Road, London.

This one was risky but both passed me without incident. I pretended to keep shooting and they passed me by. Hopefully, they thought I was shooting the area and not them.

This gives the shot some intensity though as I especially like how the ma is looking straight at me, making his mind up about what to do or say.

I wonder what he is thinking? Maybe I don’t want to know!

  1. It is always a risk. Discretion is the better part of valor, learning to be discrete. In NYC many people don’t like having their pictures taken. In the highly visited areas, I am told the locals fee like zoo residents….But the process is all worth it….Well done.

    1. Thank you. I normally use my 45mm (90mm) lens to give some distance. This was closer than normal but worked well and his expression helped.

      I don’t think I’d ever do this in NYC though (although I’ll have to check old photos to see if I have!)

      Thanks for the comment.
