Royal celebrations

There are many, but there could have been more.

I had great trouble cutting this one down. The extraordinary variety of opportunities was truly great and to have been expected. No shots of the Royals, only the spectators.

I wanted to pay particular attention to the characters present, but with a greater focus on the scene rather than the individual. I am quite a fan of Jeff Wall and his images of – not necessarily ominous – but definitely unusual groupings of people. The photos have a depth of detail and context often missed through a tighter viewfinder. That said, they must been seen as large prints – web-sized does not do them justice.

Perhaps more on the lines of ‘Where’s Wally?’.

Welcome to the Royal Wedding and the international crowd
