A bad day at the office

Went to the Tuesday market here in Ashington to try my hand at street photography and oh dear me what an experience this turned out to be. As the traders were setting up stalls I wandered over to a fishmonger and asked if it was ok to take a few snaps ..... the answer was somewhat graphic ...... I retired out of sight thinking I had done something wrong but then collected my thoughts and took a few images of the passers by.
Next week will see a return but this time instead of asking permission, the camera will be pointed and the shutter pressed, the law is on my side, it is a public place.

Here's one I took @ 20th of a sec. The two lasses are frozen in time ....... outside the jewellers.

Market traders are notorious for not wanting to be snapped. I admire your bravery in even trying. Things can only get better. Grin
