This week’s collection of images has been inspired by Cee’s black and white prompt: Any kind of camera or photos of photographers. I decided on the title to make it sound a little sinister – a tenuous link to fit in with my month of loosely Halloween-y related posts!
Capturing photographers concentrating on their craft or simply images of cameras, new and old, is something I’ve always found quite evocative. However, as I’ve mentioned before, as much as I like taking candid photos of strangers, I do often feel intrusive and bottle it before I get a good shot! So with that in mind, I could have called the post ‘Selfies and Stalking S‘ as the majority of these archive images are of me and him!
However, there’s a small selection, actually taken by S, that has become a little joke quest whenever we’re on holiday – how many people we can find taking images using iPads! Whilst I can’t deny that iPads (and other mobile Apple products) have fantastic, in-built cameras, they do seem quite cumbersome for carrying around to take holiday snaps with. And when you’re at a highly visited landmark / attraction, it sometimes becomes impossible to see the actual monument, past all the digital screens being held aloft! Perhaps our next covert project will be people with selfie-sticks…
Anyway, I hope you enjoy them – don’t forget to check out the other entries in the photo challenge too. And as always, thanks for looking! 🙂
