photoblog image Seahouses 3/4

Seahouses 3/4

2009 Retrospective - I had a number of images I took last year that I would have liked to have posted on SC but time didn't allow.  For the time being I am posting a number of these, in no particular order, which I hope you will enjoy.

The third of my pictures from Seahouses, Northumberland was taken in the main street while I was waiting for Maureen to come out of yet another shop.  I thought it might be a chance to try some more people pictures and I tried a few of these people across the road going about their business.

I took this at waist level and sadly it isn't quite sharp. Perhaps one day I will be as confident as Richard at this sort of thing.

nice capture here people just doing therr stuff, and sunny as well
Brian Walbey: Thans Derek, but not quite so nice there at the moment I suspect.
a nice one! i like scenes of street life like this smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Charles.
Watching Richard at work is an education Brian! I have dared to ask once or twice and it has been worth it!
Brian Walbey: I think Richard is coming to Stratford according to Chad, perhaps he could give us a masterclass.

You certainly have given us a lot to see, Brian, while waiting for Maureen. Well done.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ginnie, she was in another shop quite a longtime, I'm used to that after 39 years smile

Street life & dreadful spelling on shopfronts! You'll have to meet Richard (in fact you probably will at Stratford) & he'll show you how to charm everyone!
Brian Walbey: I hate this sort of spelling also Chris, the one that really gets me is "instore", why not "in the store", it's just laziness. I hope Richard is at Stratford.
Practice makes perfect Brian, just keep going.
Brian Walbey: Will do Michael, thanks very much.

I think the lady in the sunny's was the only one that noticed you.
When I'm at the beach I have my tripod and remote, line it up in the general direction, focus then turn towards whoever is with me and click away. Have got some nice people candids this way.
Brian Walbey: That sounds quite a good idea Aussie, mind you there aren't many beaches round where I live, it will have to be the local park.
Seahouses looks like it has gone upmarket since I was there many years ago. a good capture.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Les. I liked Seahouses although it isn't quite a Blackpool or Brighton by a long chalk.

Nice neighbourhood!- Do the pets also enjoy Koffee and Kreme? Ratto Cappuccino, prego!
Brian Walbey: I don't know about the pets Philine but I suspect the owners do smile
Its a good candid Brian, it reminds me of a film set and they are waiting for action to be shouted smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Linda. I hadn't thought of it like that but then Seahouses is a bit of a sleepy sort of place.

Har Har.

The lady behind the dark glasses spotted you anyway, Brian...you might as well have been really brazen, heh!
Brian Walbey: I can't get up enough courage yet to just point the camera brazenly at people Ray.

Nice capture here people,well done
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Roland.
life passing by... always good to take candid s of
nice one
Cheers
Rob
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Rob.
Lovely street image but the shop signage is pretty dire ... to put it mildly. But of course not your fault Brian.

richard
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, I'm not a great lover of abbreviated names, see my reply to Chris.
Maybe one day you will be as confident as Richard, but maybe soon we will all have to stop street photography.
I got stopped today, and shouted at, and I had to delete the photo while the man in the shot watched me do it. Shame, it was one of the best in a series I had been taking. Made me shake a bit though, it wasn't nice.
Brian Walbey: I'm sure it wasn't very comfortable for you Sheila, the thing is that in the U.K.at least there are no laws against these type of pictures.
Re your reply to my comment. Not at the moment, but it could be coming soon. See the remarks and links in Richard's (trimage) and others comments. The Guardian links.
Brian Walbey: You are right Sheila, as a train enthusiast the magazines I read are full of letters and items about taking photos at stations etc.
Just snapped from the waist, eh? Just think what you could have done at eye level smile Of course, my old G2 had a swivel screen and it was possible to take waist level shots - I was always sorry that they dropped it for the G9 - brought it back in the G11 of course! It's sad that this could be anywhere - pretty anonymous architecture.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tom. Seahouses is a bit of an anonymous sort of place really to be honest although we did like it there, nice and quiet.

NO worries, Brian; it's not an an area I'm comfortable doing, either. A fair cross selection of the Great Unwashed doing what they need to do. I hope that the coffee shop owners realise that their signwriter can't spell! wink
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan. I detest naff shop names etc.just as much as the use of the "instore", what is wrong with "in the store", I really am getting old and grumpy!
Roffe & Rreme indeed. I note that one customer prefers to take his beverage outside the pet shop.
Brian Walbey: Perhpas the food was only fit for animals Chad smile
I have just aquired a small mirror for these situations ..It works well. A good picture all round though Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ron. That is a good idea of yours.
I like this kind of "usual life" shots, great !
Brian Walbey: Thanks Zeb. I'm still trying to get brave enough to do much street photography though.
