An afternoon in the Jewellery Quarter


Last Sunday I thought I would try out some street photography. The JQ is a trendily gentrified area of Birmingham, full of old buildings, jewellery shops, cafes, and usually lots of people milling around. I haven't actually taken any street shots since I got my full frame D750 so I thought I would put it to the test. I originally wanted to take some film shots on my old Olympus OM2 as I'd just put in a new roll of black and white film - as soon as I got it out of the bag and tried to start shooting it jammed up annoyingly, so I switched back to my Nikon. I was looking forward to getting some film shots of the JQ but that will have to wait until next time! These shots are all taken with my 50mm 1.8.
