I took these photos in my local supermarket in May 2012, but they work well as a companion post (pretentious, muy?) to my recent article on supermarkets for Surrey Life magazine.
I would like to have taken more, but it's impossible not to feel furtive with a camera in a supermarket. Even a phone camera.
I tweeted the shot below the day I took it and it was re-tweeted by my hero James Ward. Which made me happy.
I had terrible trouble with the glare on this Persil shot.
Terrible. I was getting lots of glare off the Crispy Minis too, so I took it from an angle, which rather diminishes the impact.
I was getting really jumpy by this stage, which might be the reason for cutting off of the spray handles of the bottles on the upper shelf. Well, that and being a terrible photographer. I think I put my phone away after this one and tried to pretend I was just browsing.
What an adventure.
