I thought I would practise photographing crowds and the public in advance of my attempt for Santacon as it is very much out of my comfort zone. It was quite amusing to sit at a small café in Spain and try to photograph people without them noticing, I did get a few quizzical looks on occasion but I then pretended to be testing my camera and ‘fixing’ something.
I tried again on the flight home once we had landed but this did rather annoy my husband and it was much more obvious, besides we also needed to disembark! For someone as shy as myself and not usually comfortable with this style of photography I have found that the challenge is quite enjoyable even if the results are not perfect. I have included a selection below although I also plan to attend Remembrance Sunday at the Cenotaph and will post more if I get the opportunity.
I even got a herd of goats, no-one said it had to be a crowd of humans!
