Any Corner is Cover

    Newer Older

    All though an urban theatre, finding cover could be difficult in an area where the locals don't want you there.

    This was taken in 1986 in west Belfast. The photo shows a soldier of the 3rd Royal Anglican Regt. who were on a 6 Month emergency tour from 1986 too 87.

      I remember, when I was a kid, often being startled by soldiers as they crouched in the door ways and dark corners of where i grew up in North Belfast.

      They were everywhere .. but not any more :o)

      Some photos gain value in time - lots of time. The odd thing is that those which stand alone as "pretty" have so little value compared to, for example, pictures of people and situations made long ago. Well this looks like a photo that may just last for quite some time in value. Congratulations!

      I liked your title 'any corner is cover'. Another phrase that springs to mind is 'tracer works both ways'..
