One of the things that I enjoyed most about my visit to Hebden Bridge in June 2022, was the relaxed atmosphere and the willingness of people to allow me to photograph them – like the street musician below.
He seemed ever so cheerful, but I think that I should show him also in his context in the market square.
I didn’t have to walk very much further to see the man below, singing and playing his guitar in the shopping centre.
I saw this man below, who wasn’t obviously busking, just sat on a bench in the gardens and strumming.
The older gent below was walking towards me as I headed back to the railway station. I told him that I liked his cowboy outfit and asked him to pose for a photo. He obliged immediately.
I saw this young man earlier in the afternoon on his e-scooter and wearing a covid-19 mask. Good for him, though in the open-air sunshine, it probably wasn’t really necessary.
I’d paused for lunch and to photograph the river passing under the bridge. As I turned, I saw the man below. He looked a bit grumpy, but when I lifted the camera to request a photo, he smiled and gestured to go ahead.
