Look Behind You

I positioned myself in my usual spot looking north and east (the best directions for the light) from Chichester Cross this lunchtime, hoping to see something or someone interesting but it was a pretty quiet day. I spent most of the time chatting with another photographer Dan who has been doing the same as me for a little while now, trying to catch those moments of everyday life that stand out from the norm. It was during one of these conversations that I glanced backwards, looking through the Cross and westwards; I spotted this man slowly stepping up and into the stone structure. I've seen him a few times before – he seems to be one of Chichester's small handful of regular homeless people – and felt compelled to take a shot. There's nothing amazingly special about the picture but it was a little different from usual and a reminder to myself that I need to look behind me from time to time.

    This suggestion has deeper applications, as well. :-)
