A 5 minute walk from my house is our local market, i set myself a task of photographing anything along the way coloured red, being a City supporter i'm not sure why i choose red, but hey ho!
This wasn't a walk of technical photography, everything i shot was done point and shoot with only 1 image shot of each item.
What i wanted to do was challenge myself to look at the street i walk down every single day from a different angle.
What this excercise taught me is:-
You don't see 80 percent of stuff unless you look for it!
People are genuinely afraid of cameras!
People are intrigued by cameras!
A lot of litter is Red!
Drunks have a lot to say for themselves at 11.30 in the morning
And......im not very tolerent of drug addicts who abuse me in the street for doing nothing more than taking a photo of a discarded cigarette packet, although i was tempted to take a photo of the angry red scabs on his face!!
So as you can see, i saw "RED" in more ways than one.
