What was I photographing on this day in previous years?

14 years ago it was the French commune of Mur-de-Barrez in the Aveyron department in southern France.

With a population of only 800 or so it was an incredibly peaceful little place to spend an afternoon, in fact we hardly saw a soul…

It has been said (mostly by my wife) that ‘Andy doesn’t do picturesque’ but I’m firmly of the opinion that scenes like this ARE picturesque in their own way.

I’m slowly gaining confidence when it comes to candid/street photography, it’s a slow process as although cameras are now commonplace, people seem to be far more wary of them.

Market day in Mansfield was a good place to practise though, folks were far more interested in getting their fruit and veg!
