I'm Glad I Photographed That
Image by Marie Vonow

I love taking photos and sometimes go a bit crazy, snapping this and that. When I get home and look at them on the computer I may wonder why I took so many. Other times I am so glad I did.

Reasons I am glad I took a particular shot
At a later time I may be glad I photographed that because -
it is really pretty
there is something unusual about it
people in the photo look so different now
the photo brings back memories of someone who is no longer with us
the building has been altered or knocked down
the area has changed
it's a good 'before' shot
it's street art that has been painted over

Street art that has been painted over
Sometimes street art is spoilt by graffiti. This annoys me, especially if the original would have made an excellent image for an article. I am most annoyed when someone has written something crude on a piece of art.

At other times a new piece of art is painted over the top. Even if the new piece is great, it's nice to have a photo of the original work.

One day, some months ago, I got off the train at the Salisbury station as I do quite often. There are a number of pieces of street art there, mostly paintings but also some colourful mosaics.

As I headed to the shops I realised one wall of art had been repainted with grey paint. I hoped new art would soon appear but that hasn't happened. Maybe one day. I was so pleased I had taken photos of the creatures that had adorned the wall.

Although these paintings are now gone, I have a permanent record of them thanks to my habit of taking lots of photographs.
