Another subject I am developing my style in, musicians are favoured as they are always happy to be photographed !
The local bars have regular 'Open mic' nights where any and all local musicians can take the mic to perform for the audience. The area we live in is blessed with a surfeit of very talented people ranging from the complete amateur through to the performing professional with a long history in the music industry, all mix happily socially and artistically creating a melange of sound that will find favour with everyone.
Actors and stage artists, skilled artisans of all forms of art abound around us creating a wonderful rich, supporting, welcoming feel that encourages everyone to have a go and me to try to capture this in images !
Every town has a market, if you want you can go to an open marked every single day of the week each day in a different location
