Photography for me is a very personal experience.
Also, because I so love the immersion and escapism it provides, I generally favour photowalks exploring the countryside and ancient rural churches, where I rarely see many other people.
In some ways I love the idea of street photography, but just don’t have the guts to pursue it.
Plus I feel I would need a two hour photowalk out in the back of beyond immediately after even 10 minutes of street photography, just to recover from the anxiety and regain my equilibrium!
Even on lunchtime walks where I used to try to steal 10 minutes of photography, I really didn’t like taking a picture of anyone was around, even if the picture was just of a flower or tree.
So for me, photography remains a very personal and private act.
What about you? Do you photograph in public, and are you happy to do so?
