Wanstead resident Theresa Hardy sent me the above picture, I quite like it. Theresa took the picture use the camera on her ‘phone. Sunflowers growing in a High Street are a little unusual in London I suspect. If you are in the South of France it may be a common sight. The point I want to make is that Theresa spotted the potential in an everyday scene that hundreds of people walk past everyday. It’s one of the things I’m always going on about with regard to photography, it is really about looking and recognising the potential in a scene.
To Wanstead residents Theresa’s picture tells a story, our familiar High Street complete with our local bus plus the bonus of the sunflowers…well spotted Theresa just show you don’t have to go to exotic locations to make a picture..
