Saw this shattered bus stop window and knew immediately I had to do something with it..and so after some umming and ahing I tried to get the shot from inside the shelter..this wasn’t easy because there were people in the shelter waiting for the bus to open the doors and let them on.

The best thing about street photography for me is that it always surprises me…there isn’t aContinue reading “Scary”
Passing this barber shop in London recently couldn’t resist getting a shot of the vintage decor and the lovely wooden floor. All that was missing was a whiskered gent getting a straight razor shave but that just means will have to go back!
