Royal Crescent, Bath 2016


Self-Portrait, Royal Crescent, Bath 2016

I think most photographers want to watch rather than be seen. In this case, I was interested in the shadow from the tree, rather than the hunched form at the bottom of the picture. In this case, it was a brilliant day, dry and clear, so rather than use colour, I chose to use black and white film.

I enjoy walking in the park in front of the Crescent, at most times of day, there are crowds of visitors, walking off cramp from being on a coach. On this occasion, it looks like they haven’t arrived yet (long shadow – so quite early).
