Great tyro 2018-12-28 10:35

Hello Rob,

Another fine trio of photographs showing interaction between observer and art. And three quite different pieces of art and three different observers, and the Dalis are being scrutinised while the Picasso is also being photographed.

Three lovely and very interesting photographs, each of excellent quality despite what must have been quite challenging lighting conditions.

Thank you for sharing these and also for your fascinating and informative note.


Kind Regards,


P.S. I've often wondered - do you try to remain unnoticed when taking these pictures or do you ask permission of the public before taking them? I always feel a bit nervous and self-conscious when trying to shoot images in places like this - unfortunately people in Britain seem to be becoming more and more paranoid - to the extent that if you're seen taking photographs in a public place, many will immediately suspect that you are either a terrorist or some sort of creepy or perverted predator. It really is a shame that people now seem so mistrusting.

Hello John.
Usually they are stolen photos and I recognize your feelings of embarrassment.
Occasionally I ask permission if I see no chance to photograph unnoticed and the person is too photogenic.
groet Rob
