I used to do a lot of street photography and I think I convinced myself that my photos need not be good, because photography was my hobby, not my job.
I’ve been digging through my archives and all I can say is, “Photography might a hobby, but your photos are definitely good enough.”
I refuse to over-analyse or over-compensate. If I say that the photos are good enough, then they are. End of.
This was taken in central London.
This was taken the same day as well.
And this, a few months later. I take a lot of food photos, don’t I ;-)?
The last picture isn’t perfect, but as my friends and family know, I like this. Life is imperfect, and airbrushing (however noble the intention) can sometimes make us blind to the beauty of life itself.
