I had the opportunity to meet my groupie friend Barbara last week. We met in Bristol down at the harbour where much regeneration has happened over the last ten years. People moor their boats, live on their houseboats, eat, meet and explore.  We had been planning this for sometime but the weather wouldn’t play ball so this was probably the last opportunity for some time.

I took a few photos a lot of which were of a texture type to use in my Photoshop Artistry course.  But as the day went on I found myself taking candid people shots.  So here are a few.

  1. I so love the textures and frames in your shots today. And I ADORE the font in your muse piece (b/c I'm a font junkie)! People watching is so much fun. These are great slices of life.Visiting from Texture Tuesday and Tuesday Muse.


  2. The photo of you two is absolutely the Best!!! Such expressions of fun and enjoyment. Love your candid people shots, especially the second one. The food stall is always a great place to shoot – the displays are appealing. Did you purchase any goods there? The goodies in the jar look really tasty! Glad you shared your day with Barbara – so fun! Have a great week!


  3. Oh, Viv — how wonderful! looks like you had a great time. so nice to meet up with a friend. your street shots are great … you really captured *personalities*


  4. You have an eye for capturing characters on the street Viv – and the processing fits them perfectly. And so happy to see you and Barbara. I think I may be ready for another adventure…


  5. Great shots! I love the street shots and how you turned the camera to capture a different angle at the MShed. Makes me want to take a walk and see if I could capture some people except that it's night and not many people out now! Maybe tomorrow…
