I wish that this tourist, posing on these steps for a friend, had looked in my direction while I was taking the shot rather than glancing off camera.
However, as I was stood there aiming at these steps when she obliviously walked into the scene and sat on them for 5 minutes it’s pretty clear that she couldn’t actually see me, so I should therefore not be surprised that she was not looking remotely in my direction.
It must be of great use to a street or wildlife photographer to become one with the landscape and be able to take images without the subject knowing you are there. Perhaps, therefore, I should count myself as blessed that I have managed to achieve this so effortlessly on so many occasions in major cities.
Yes, my life is difficult I agree.
