Wandering the streets

An all photography post here.  I went on a beginners photography course the other day and whilst I’d previously picked up quite a bit from the net and magazines, it was good to have someone drumming the main principles of photography into you, balancing exposure, shutter speed and ISO.  We got ejected into the centre of Manchester during lunchtime to try out our new-found skills so here are a few I took.  I’ve taken a lot of “stills” over the last few months so I focused on capturing people this time….

This live drumming enchanted the little girl (and me) ……

Girl

Fantastic hair – this young lady was facing the other way and spun round as I took the photo.  I think she caught me!

Al fresco dining and al fresco living …….
