On a trip to the “Smoke” (Glasgow) yesterday, I thought I would try my hand at something different to my usual photographic style. Travelling by train (brave I know), I arrived at Glasgow Central station with a few minutes to spare between connections. So I took the opportunity to so some candid or “street photography” on the station concourse. This image was th result, showing a couple looking up at the arrivals board on the concourse.
To photograph on the station I had to get permission, one guy (look like the station manager was fine, delighted in fact), but the Customer Services person was a bit more grumpy, and wanted to know if I was going to be using a tripod. Answer: No! What I didn’t say was that the camera (a Minolta DSLR) has inbuilt stabilisation and at 1/80th of a second shutter speed I was almost guaranteed a sharp image!
Any way see what you think, its a radical departure from my usual style. I like the mono version as the other huge number of colours in the colour version is distracting.
