Good street photography is always something that I have admired but considered myself lacking in the skill and courage it takes to attempt. There's something special about seeing a scene develop in front of you and capturing photographs of strangers in a way that the viewer finds engaging, which eludes me.
When I was recently in Kuala Lumpur, I found myself in Chinatown among the market stalls and the food joints. The mixture of sights, sounds and smells, so different to what I was used to in Liverpool, created an atmosphere that was simply crying out for me to take out my camera and start shooting. Fortunately, being the idiotic tourist with a camera, most of the locals hardly gave me a second glance, allowing me to get a bit closer than I would normally be comfortable with.
