I Lied. There is more!

I didn’t mean to, but I had forgotten a folder on my drive.

So here is definitely the last shots from my trip to Bath. Once again they are all taken with my trusty Nikon D7000 and Nikkor 85mm. I have converted them all to black & white, and hope you’re as pleased as me that I found them.


I saw this girl in the square to the side of the Abbey enjoying her drink in the sunshine whilst on her phone. Then she saw me!

During the day there had been classical and easy listeneing guitarists in the square in front of the Abbey. I think there are only selected people who can play there, maybe they have to be licensed. This shot was taken later in the afternoon and he was much more up tempo singing classics in his own way. He was very good and sold a few CD’s whilst I was there. I didn’t get his name, but will do next time I’m there.

I couldn’t help but laugh when I saw this woman looking in the shop window. The reflection reminded me of the “Hall of Mirrors” at the fairground.

This was one of the actors in the Fringe who seemed to be doing a spoof of 50’s cookery programmes. She was very enthusiastic and was really enjoying herself.

This boy’s face and posture are saying “I don’t like this, I feel embarrassed” as the woman hugs him in greeting.

These guys were in a great position, sitting in the sun outside the pub with an excellent view of the Fringe performances.

This pretty girl was standing in the square in front of the Abbey. She looked like she was waiting for somebody.

This woman saw me with the camera so turned away as if she was looking in the window, not realising her reflection was there.

This guy wasn’t performing, but walking across the road juggling the sticks, no doubt he would be performing later.

This cheerful lady was sitting behind her stall chatting to someone who was with her, with all the activity of the Fringe going on around her.

This girl seemed concerned about something. She stood out due to her harsh hairstyle and her make up made her features look angular. Then there was the tattoo.

I saw this woman walking along the street and she stared over at me as I leant against a wall watching people go by. A couple of minutes later I turned around to see her pointing her camera at me, so got this shot.

Somebody was watching me!

I walked around the stalls in the street and took this shot, through the stall, of the woman who had the camera pointing my way. I don’t know if she was taking a shot of me, it could well have been the wall as it had a fantastic texture as you can see.

There she is!

These two women were walking along the pavement with the big pillars beside them. The group on the end is a guided tour. Sadly the women were about halfway along but I had to crop out about a third of the pillars, due to building materials against a wall which showed up between the pillars, so spoiling the shot.

  1. You had me laughing at the Fairground Mirror image, that’s a great shot.

    The shot of you shooting her shooting you, reminds me of a typical sniper vs sniper scene in a movie.

    Obviously I don’t mind taking street shots but funnily enough when I look at that image of her peering along the wall I feel quite uneasy. Now I see how it feels to be on the other end of the lens.
    Although I wouldn’t object to having my photo taken in that manner, I now have a better understanding on why some people would.
    Nice post Wayne.

    • The image in the window was nothing like her that’s why I thought that. It had me laughing as well.

      She could well have been shooting along the wall, but would you shoot along something if someone was standing at the other end?

  2. “Someone was watching me!” was my favorite one. As photographers, we get so used to being the one taking pictures that it’s almost weird when we catch someone taking a picture of us.

    • phew! I thought it was just me :0P

  3. Very nice set Wayne, yes I like the “someone was wathing me” one, but my favourite is the “The cake maker” I love her expression, caught her just right.

    • She was only young Baz, but she had the audience in stitches with her parody.

      I think everyone can sympathise with the kid in “Embarrassed by his Aunt”.
