Recently I’ve been trying to get back into jogging (hence less photography – have you tried a 3 mile jog with a D70 round your neck? ). I’m shocked at how out-of-shape I am, however I hope to improve fast!
When taking photos like this I’m never too sure if I’m crossing into someones private space, or whether I’m just making a normal observation of someones public behavious…
A few members of the local camera club were noticably voiciferous about this at a meeting last week – re-iterating that, under UK law, anyone who’s in public is “fair game” in photography terms. I think it’s important I maintain a balance between legality, and perhaps old-fashioned good manners.
In this scene, I felt that the girl was not sufficiently clear to worry about, but that there was enough detail remaining to make an interesting shot.
