I decided to take the train to Brighton today for a little photography and window shopping, armed with only my camera and nifty-fifty lens. I spent a couple of hours walking along the beach and the Palace Pier. Considering the grey, drizzly weather the beach was remarkably busy and there were any number of people seeking thrills on the pier??s stomach turning rides. Once I??d had enough of the cold I headed back into the town centre in search of some candid street photography. I didn??t have to search too hard for characters to photograph. I found a man playing the piano in the street (complete with wheels so he could move it around) but I think my favourite face of the day was an elderly gentleman I found in the main shopping centre. He was so engrossed in the moment as he ate his ice cream that he was utterly oblivious to my presence.
