Belgravia street shoot

Belgravia

The coffee bar conversation

Last month I enjoyed putting my new street pal, the Fuji X-E1, through its paces during a lunchtime stroll around Belgravia.

Street photography is a very different genre from my usual fare, but I am enjoying dabbling in it.

In the Arcade

I love it that with the X-E1 I can snap away without people noticing. I am even beginning to shoot from the hip, and sometimes I get a passable shot that way.

Lunch with the boys

I love the contrasts you get in London, like working lads taking a lunch break under a designer advert with a distinctly effete-looking model.

Put That Phone Away!

Perhaps it helps with the stealth shooting that everyone is too busy looking at his/her phone to notice me!
