Street Photography, what a piece of.....oh hang on

Last night I attempted to watch the Sky Arts programme 'Master of Photography' again. I say attempted because the last time I ended up shouting at the TV and my wife told me I wasn't allowed to watch it again because it makes me angry.

She was right, of course. I got annoyed because of the comments from the judges. None of them made any sense to me. It was like they were being critical because that was what was expected of them. It annoyed me so much that I took matters in to my own hands and decided to look at Steve McCurry's Instagram page. Then I realised I hadn't actually tried it myself before so should shut my big fat mouth until I had.

 Not sure I've ever seen Steve McCurry's reflection in any of his images, but it was only my first day so gimme a break

 You wouldn't believe how many of these I took before I got one I liked.

 I got a bit bored of constantly shooting people looking at their mobile phones so decided this would show them who's boss.

 Yeah, yeah, yeah - I know it's cliche but you can't beat a good ol' reflection in a puddle pic

 It wasn't until I took my headphones off that I realised this guy was actually playing! Laziest busker ever.

 There was a F1 event happening in Trafalger Sq and it was all I could do to put my 'news head' away and just leave it alone!

 I saw a lovely picture of a young lad enjoying a day out on his scooter with his Dad....as his Dad checked Facebook

 I've recently thought with all the helpful road maps plotted all over London that the trusty A to Z would soon be a thing of the past. Apparently not.

Needless to say it was harder than thought, even if it was only for a few hours but I'm pretty sure I can now watch the annoying Sky Arts programme with a bit more appreciation. 

Next up is something I've been meaning to do for a while which I saw a photographer I admire greatly Tom Oldham where he completed a set of 24 portraits in 24 hours in East London. I of course will be West of the river where my heart lies but it's basically the same premise but with more sequins and loafers.
