Digital Camera World - - SHOOTOUT -

AL­THOUGH Bor­ough Mar­ket is a great spot for snap­ping tourists and traders go­ing about their busi­ness, it was the char­ac­ter­ful back­drops of the sur­round­ing streets that at­tracted Louise.

“The di­vide caught my eye here. I re­ally liked how the wait­ress hav­ing her break is look­ing a tad melan­choly away from the scene, while the noisy of­fice dwellers un­wind af­ter a day at work. I sus­pect that the dif­fer­ence in salaries could well be demon­strated by the di­vide of the wall.

“It was a bit con­trasty and there was a lot of clut­ter, which meant that I had to dance around a bit to get the shot I wanted be­fore the lady fin­ished her cig­a­rette. I think I prob­a­bly dithered a bit prior to tak­ing the pho­to­graph too, as she al­most scowled at me, but she even­tu­ally cracked a smile. I re­ally need to work on my con­fi­dence in just tak­ing the shot.”
