Only Me

I love these old shelters on the pier, and after hours of hanging around in the darkness, the lights finally came on and we could shoot this sequence. Unfortunately, it didn't quite go as I'd hoped. Whilst we were setting up an elderly man wandered over and started grilling me on my setup. After telling me off for not using a filter (because apparantly using photoshop is not photography), he then proceeded to hang over the back of my camera while I was shooting advising me on all the many things I was doing wrong (basically everything!) Explaining to him that it wasn't technical perfection, merely a mood I was going for, all fell on deaf ears. Hence...not quite the shot I was hoping for. I find it hard to concentrate with someone up my armpit! lol!

Anyone who's ever seen Harry Enfield's TV show and the 'Only Me' character will know where I'm coming from!
