Street Photography

Melton Road, Night Street Photography

A cold day and walk about on Melton Road, a very multicultural part of Leicester city. The fantastic part about this area is that it gets decorated seasonally e.g. Christmas, Diwali etc. The next set of images are taken on different parts of this road.

A Stroll on Evington Road

Its was a cold day, I decided to go for a little stroll not to far from my home. As I approached the road I happened to found this man sitting outside a cafe, I have seen him a few time when I have passed on this road and always have thought to my self I would like to photograph him, when I happened to visit again I was delighted to see him there! 

 After taking his picture, he was grateful for the opportunity. I was quite happy with the image too.

There was something about this couple I found interesting. I find street portraits extremely fascinating, but the people that you photograph within your portraits are a representation of what daily life means to them. For example, the way people dress can give us a bit of information about them. In this image the lady has a dot on her forehead - this is generally a sign in Hinduism that the women is married. Little aspects like this in an image also give the viewer a bit of an insight into the lives of these characters being photographed.

I enjoyed taking these images, however there were people I wanted to photograph but they refused to have their images taken. This is indeed the most common problem that most street photographers will face. I guess it is worth asking, you never know till you ask.

I hope you have enjoyed this post.
