I have realized, after looking at all my images from our recent trip, that my favourite photos, again and again, are images with people in them. I do love night photography…I think that is fast becoming one of my favourite times of day to shoot, but still my favourites are “people shots”. I think it’s because for me, travelling is not just about seeing beautiful places (although it certainly is part of it!), but also about experiencing a new place…and a big part of that is through people. A kind waiter, bartering with a shopkeeper, a friendly smile…even an angry taxi driver or grouchy clerk…all these have a huge influence on how you experience a place. And so, for me, images of people really help capture the essence and spirit of a place.
Here are some of my recent favourites…a couple of them I’ve previously posted, but I’m going to include them again, just because I can! 🙂
