Photographer's Note

The title of this photograph was inspired by a quote from a short film produced by photographer Nick Turpin.For me, it goes some way to explain why I enjoy street photography.Nick Turpin sees street photography as a "important way of showing the society we've created."
This photo was taken in Leith, a run down area of Edinburgh but with a interesting maritime history.Parts of Leith are being rejuvanted, with yuppie housing by The Water of Leith as well as ancient pubs catering for tourists.Within a few minutes walk from this scene we spent an evening enjoying Guinness and oysters in a seafood restuarant I plan to be taken back to for my birthday.See workshop.
