A few months ago, I visited Cambridge to do a little shopping. Cambridge is an hour's drive from my home, and is a nice place to wander around. I wanted to get some street images from the people of Cambridge; especially as the city is crammed full of university students, foreign tourists and local Cambridgites. It was one of those days where I ended up being very disappointed with my photographic results. At the end of the day, I realised I had my camera all set up totally wrong, and most of the shots were blurred and messed up.
I did, however, get three images which I was pleased with:
There was something nice about this girl. She seemed to hold a very content composure, as she wandered through the old shopping streets. I captured here nicely in front of the victorian shops.
Now this girl definitely clocked my hip-held camera action. Looking straight into the camera! Once again, I liked the way I framed her as she crossed the road, mid-stride with her hair caught in the wind.
Here we have a nice old couple sitting together. Two different expressions and postures. This time I actually stood in front of them and took their picture, without my usual secrecy. I like the aged expression of the old chap; probably wondering why I am taking his picture.
Next time I visit Cambridge, I will get many more images. I shall check my setting properly.
