A Room With A View - Photo Series

28th January 2018
As street photographers, we can spend hours, days, weeks, months and years pounding the local streets, travelling the world, searching for that perfect shot. I personally love the outdoors, I love walking, I love my photo walks. The anticipation of possibly turning a corner and observing a cracking moment. The butterflies you get in your stomach just before you hit that shutter button knowing the moment maybe gone in seconds. I have even been known to plan a photo walk around a rainstorm/snow forecast, just to add to my ever-increasing Rainy Days & Brollies series of shots.

Sometimes though, I glance through the windows of my room with a view - raindrops streaming down, camera in hand, debating with myself 'is it worth going out today? Should I risk the warmth and coziness of my Maida Vale apartment to go out and make some pictures? Am I prepared to get soaked by our horizontal London rain? Is it worth my (non-weather sealed) camera of choice getting soaked and possibly damaged? With a 50/50 possibility of only getting some ok shots. Or, god forbid, coming home with..... nothing?! The sound of the kettle boiling brings me back to my senses, I take a sip of my hot tea and I say to myself "Nah! fudge that! I'm staying in today!!"

Thankfully, on those off chances that I did stay indoors (come rain, snow or shine), observing the local life from the comfort of my first-floor apartment, peering out my window (like Dot Cotton but with a camera), I managed to 'document' a few moments that caught my eye!

Here is a selection from my ongoing Room With A View photography series!
