I had seen this nice column piece by Daz Cat several times, but kept forgetting to go back to photograph it. By the time I sorted myself out, someone had slapped a poster in the middle of the face. This is a dilemma for a street photographer. Do I leave it as I found it, as if it were a tag, or do I remove it? I tend to leave it as it is as this somehow feels more authentic to me. It is how it is when I saw it.
Having said all of that, it is a pity that the grubby poster is there, because the piece is a nice one. Also I am embarrassed by the quality of the photograph which is way out of focus, so I think I am going to have to return to photograph it again, and maybe I’ll get lucky and the poster will have blown away.
