I need to cover a couple of caveats before I get into this blog post.
Firstly, I am a Landscape photographer and, on occasion, will hop over a gate or two to get a different composition.
Secondly, I will always be respectful of the land and those who tend it.
Thirdly, I’m really not very good at confrontation, and if my friendly (yes, I know you’re going to have a pop) “Hello!” is met with a passive aggressive. “Can I help you?”
“No, not really…” (I’m stood in this wonderful field with a camera and I know what I’m doing) was probably not the right response. Anyway, to cut a long story short, I think he thought I was someone that I’m not and my back was put up (wrongly because it was his land after all) by his demeanor.
It wasn’t all bad though, we had a moment of reverse selfies…
I wonder what he’s going to do with the photo of me?
Oh, and the dog scared Bejesus out of me too!
