If I don't manage to take something decent tomorrow chromasia may well go on sabbatical for a few days as I'm dead beat and can't seem to manage to take even the simplest of shots. Mostly, I think, because I'm totally worn out with doing this kitchen. It's going ok, but it's going slowly, and I have a million and one other things that I need to catch up with. So, if nothing appears tomorrow, you'll know why.
As for this shot: it's not the greatest bit of street photography but I've put it up because it illustrates something that I find difficult. It's a shot of my friend John from shotsphotography.co.uk taken last time he was in Blackpool as he charmed his way around town. Whenever I approach people to ask them if it would be ok to photograph them I do so in a rather apologetic way. They normally say yes, but it's not something I feel all that comfortable with. John, on the other hand, and as you can see from this shot, is a lot more relaxed about it. When/if I ever finish this kitchen this is something that I probably need to work on.
