Untitled digital photograph, 2012

This one was taken in the courtyard of Somerset House, London, UK. Not long after I took it, I experienced a new spin on the “I don’t want my photograph taken” scenario. A very glamourous couple stepped out of a doorway to these people’s left and I took a few photos. A few moments later, I felt a tap on the shoulder and it was them. The man asked me why I’d taken his photograph, and was quite insistent I delete it. I agreed to, because I’m not taking the photos with the intention of irritating people, but he actually looked over my shoulder to watch the deletion happen. He was all smiles afterwards, conscience unclear…

No. 9 in an occasional series.
