Delna and I participated in the Gent Photo-Marathon last weekend. We took the opportunity to take a few street shots. People were surprisingly friendly and good natured about having their photos taken, especially when we showed them our cheesy blue ‘PhotoMarathon’ shirts.

Lessons learnt:

1. Black & White is great for these overcast days; great exception to appear on Delna’s blog (soon?)

2. Staying still is a good way to observe and capture people.

3. People are friendly, we had a couple on their second honeymoon pose for us, a few people lent us their umbrellas (including a young girl)

4. Photo-Marathons are great ways to bring even more creativity to our photography
