Unseen Street. Colour.

For one reason or another many of the photographs I take never see the light of day. It could be that at the time I don’t think much of them, or they just don’t quite fit anywhere somehow. I also don’t like overkill, and don’t really want to be constantly posting. That instagram instahit, then instaforgotten thing doesn’t appeal. I do post on instagram (alangardner74), and like scrolling through other people’s work on there, but I cannot be bothered with the daily rat race, or whatever it takes to ‘build a following’ for no good reason. It’s all very disposable, even good work. That disposability is built in.

Anyway, even with Flickr (my Flickr ), which I think is much better and more enjoyable, I try not to just post for the sake of posting. I try to be a bit more considered. So, in saying all that, I thought I would take a look back into my archives of street photography over the last three years or so and pick out some shots that have remained hidden away in the bottom drawer.
