Just as an aside, a guy on flickr posted this video of Joe Wigfall in action, another street photographer. He has a really refreshing and polite approach to his work. Liked it alot.
So this week's instruction is:
Yeh, I like this one. It screams at me - kids, take pictures of kids, see things from their level. However, this week I have been relatively impetuous and uploaded this image within a couple of days:
on your knees please...take a picture from floor level
I knew my Wednesday slot was out this week and I also looked through the pool and saw lots of people's legs, shoes and concrete and wanted something a little different. At the Christmas lights switch on, I took this one of the nearby stalls. I liked the colour and the slightly different subject matter, however, I have liked it less as the week has progressed. It lacks the trademark humour of Matt Stuart's work and whilst there is a person in the picture, she doesn't actually contribute anything additional to the image. So I've learnt quite a lot again this week largely at my own expense. However, I am driven on in the hope that I make the shortlist once again sometime in the future, but unfortunately I don't think it is going to be this week!!
