Street Shot Bonus – No.1


    Don't Feed The Birds by Mister G.C.

    While I was on the way to meet up with fellow street photographer Leanne Boulton in Glasgow, I spotted a young Asian woman having a bit of breakfast on a bench in George Square.

    I do like a good old ‘bench shot’ and proceeded to compose and fire off a few shots using my Nikon D5300 & Nikon 50mm f1.8 Lens.

    I had a quick ‘chimp’ at the images and decided I had the shot I was after and carried on to have a great day with Leanne wandering around the amazing city.

    It was only when I got home to Germany and started to process the day’s images that I came across my ‘Street Shot Bonus’ of a pigeon that flew through one of the shots just at the right height as if it was after her sandwich and also near perfectly positioned between the benches.

    It absolutely change the whole story of the image from just someone having a bite on a bench, to looking like someone facing in the wrong direction, totally unaware and about to lose their snack.
