Potshot

Walking past Granary Square at Kings Cross, I saw this shot out of the corner of my eye and turned quickly to incorporate both the photographing trio and the voyeur on the right.

This could have been an interesting photo but I am always reluctant to pointedly shoot at people with my camera, so instead I hurriedly and guiltily pressed the shutter. Moreover, since I had the zoom lens on the camera I could have used it to isolate the photo’s ‘narrative’ much better – again that would have felt even more intrusive. Waiting longer would have helped too so that the passer-by on the mobile would be out of the way. Then there is that annoying twig in top left – more careful adjustment with framing might have kept that out.

Panasonic Lumix Lens: 14-140mm f/3.5-5.6 (28mm wide angle to 280mm full format)
f5.0; 1/160; 160 ISO;

Note: I’m casting a critical eye on those photos that almost passed muster and paying attention to technicalities. One for the ‘second best Sunday’
