~Rainy days ~

A few years ago I was lucky enough to do a Street photography workshop with the very accomplished and amazingly talented British photographer Les Mc Lean. It was a weekend of fun, laughter and a lot of photography.


I learned so much from him about how to take candid type photo's. One of his gems of wisdom has stuck with me to this day was "Set the scene that you want for your photo - then just sit back and wait for people to walk in to it" I can't tell you how many times I have thought of that over the past years and again for this weeks theme Street photography. I added the selective colouring because it's been such a gloomy and dull week this lady's umbrella really brightened up an otherwise bleak scene!
