Time For Some Street Photography

I own my Sony for wildlife but I like a small system to carry round so I purchased the Fujifilm XT30 and I have the 23mm 1.4 Lens. So with that in mind I am planning a trip to Blackpool to do some street photography.

Adopting a pleasant manner is my aim and ask people on the street for the permission for a image, find a nice different background and ask them to pose for me

With the face mask so visible i think this would make a nice black and white image to look back on and discuss what it was like when we lived with a virus.

Our children would look back like I do now and ask why was everyone wearing masks.

Look forward to posting my images and hopefully some nice stories behind the image.

I am 63 years old and and since a boy have had an interest in wildlife and in particular birds. I help my Dad with the rearing of young finches and other birds. I had many small birds as pets and as i got older and joined the Military i purchsed my first Camera, and fold out Kodak. Over a 22 year period i enjoyed many countries outside the uk and observed many species of birds. When i left the military in 2000, i bought my first digital camera a Canon 450D with a Tamron 70-300 and started my journey on capturing images of birds and animals. I quickly learned that there was a lot more to getting a good image of a bird, so i started to research the best settings for my camera in order to capture a better image. Over a 12 month period i realised that needed to invest in a better camera and lens and after research bought a Canon 50D and a 100-400 Lens. It was 2013 when i really got to grips with the setup and came across a lovely Short Eared Owl. From that meeting i started to concentrate on Owls as they fasinated me. From Canon to Olympus i recently jumped ship again to Sony. The variety of birds i have captured over a 10 year period is vast and at present i have a wildlife hide in lancashire where most of my images are captured.
