The vintage shop
I had this idea to photograph people at work, in all walks of life, around Cornwall. The trouble is I am extremely nervous of approaching people and asking for their photo. I've no problem photographing people when they know I am there in some official capacity but asking complete strangers is hard. So today I took the first step. The Vintage Shop is an incredible little place up an alleyway in Redruth. From the entrance way, surrounded by plants it seems that you are walking into a nursey but turn the corner and enter the shop and you are in a whole different world. Furniture, ornaments, old clothes, medals and, above your head a ceiling of parasols.
The lady running the shop was about as uncomfortable as I was about the idea of having her picture taken so I can only apologise for putting her on the spot. Still its a start, hopefully I'll find it easier as I go on.
