Promenading in the Sun

I am doing a Personal Project course with #charlottebellamy which includes some mindful activities. Yesterday I went to the seaside on a photoshoot. I sat for half an hour writing in my journal about what I was seeing and feeling before even picking up my camera which was sooooo hard as I immediately wanted to photograph the sunshine sparkling on the waves. But in response to what I had been writing about I took a series of images of the people walking by (and their dogs!). Out of my comfort zone, where I struggle ethically with taking photographs of people without their permission, I focussed on their feet!

I have had to resist my temptation to edit the images to 'improve' them, and post them just as I experienced taking them. A new way of seeing my photography. Individually, the images are not very good, put together they tell a story.
