The last couple of days I’ve spent back in England. No, not on another trip from processing photos that have been sitting on my hard drive since I returned in May.
I have literally thousands of photos to go through and hundreds to process.
As I was going through the good, the bad and the ugly this weekend, I came across this one.
It is one that I shot while we were walking through the crowded streets during the 5 o’clock rush hour in the St Pancras area of London. I wanted some shots of the people hustling and bustling about, but was nearly impossible to get when everyone is walking so fast. I didn’t want to be the typical tourist and stop to take a few – which would surely have caused a walking-traffic-backup. So, deciding to get creative, set my camera on my hip and pressed the shutter button as I was walking. Not having a clue what I would get, the anticipation of the possibilities was exciting.
I had forgotten about that adventure until this weekend. Of all the shutter releases I got, this one was the best. My settings were not correct for this type of photography but I think it turned out kind of “artsy” and I like it just the same.
It is in all literal terms truly a hip pic.
