The Christmas Market opened in town yesterday. Its nice to see and walk around but I dunno, I’m just a little irritated. I’ve seen photos of Edinburghs and I was there last year. Upon arrival it snowed and it wasn’t fake snow. When you’re standing in Edinburgh with real snow falling, a big wheel, fairground lights, and street photography at every turn its a bit disheartening walking around Liverpool’s. The really really annoying thing is that there are plenty of moments out there in Liverpool to capture its just that because I’m feeling like the grass is greener up in Edinburgh I’m not in the right frame of mind to capture them. I’m also thinking that my 30D is inadequate compared to the 5D2 I have pre-ordered. Its all incredibly stupid and I should know better but its hard to shake. This time of year is brilliant for low light street photography. All the streets are lit up and it gets dark when the streets are teeming with life. I may even rent a lens for fun and I’m half tempted to spend the next few weeks with nothing but the 50mm on just because its so awesome and it makes you work for your shots in ways that the 24-70 makes you comfy.
