Whilst I was in Bristol last week taking pictures of the Christmas lights for Veg Plotting, I’d moved upstairs at Cabot Circus to get a different viewpoint of the tree with its Christmas lights.
Whilst there, I noticed the relative stillness of the 2 people on the bench compared with the shoppers passing them. As I was taking hand held pictures in relatively low light, I thought this might result in some interesting shots, suggesting solitude amongst the Christmas shopping melee.
The light patterns on the floor are from a lighting effect projected from the second floor. The tree is a real one and because it’s growing in a semi-covered spot, it hasn’t lost all of its leaves yet.
