P1-2015_M_Just chilling_Paul Hill

Just Chilling is a photograph entered as a print in our 2015-16 season’s competition by Paul Hill. Paul also entered it into the L&CPU Annual at the end of the season and it has been selected to be hung in their exhibition and tour the clubs next year in the folios of the best work in the region.

Quite a number of members enjoy street photography like this. Paul has captured an interaction between the two people, a joyful one too, and this helps us get involved in the picture. It also helps that the figures, gestures too, are clear. The steps and doorway frame them well too.
