The aim of the Assignment is to produce two sets of photographs, one showing a particular street as a place where people go to shop, the other as a place where people go to work (see https://cormac513273.wordpress.com/2014/08/19/assignment-1/).

My first attempt was on a weekday (Monday) morning so it was a good opportunity to photograph people working on the street but the ‘hustle and bustle’ of shopping was absent. The nine pictures below are the result.

In this series of images two types of ‘workers’ are seen: those that work always on the street i.e. flower sellers, musicians, and those who just happen to be working on the street the day I was photographing i.e. building workmen. I may include these two categories or not in the final selection.

The day I took these images was not sunny so there is not any use of shadow or strong contrast, the light is fairly flat – will try and remedy this. Also, obviously, have yet to get pictures of ‘shoppers’.
