Have you ever felt Scared taking a photograph?

I did taking this shot walking along the Southbank in London whilst taking some night photography, I was trying to stick to the embankment, but I had to make a detour to get to my destination, which was Tower Bridge. I stumbled on this dark and ominous street with a faint light at the end and took this Eerie shot, it felt very cold and spooky in the street at 2.00am. It wasn’t until I got back to Leeds that I realised where I was at the time, it was in fact Clink Street, home of England’s oldest and ‘Most’ notorious medieval prison…The Clink!! …I think it makes the photo feel even more eerie now.

  1. I do not know the area but I have taken a fair number of risks for the “shot” I would love to visit but not alone !

    Quite the new look in your blog!

  2. Fantastic photo ! it is only our imagination that makes it be eerie… I’d be more afraid of purse snatchers than ghosts in that place – Great photo anyway.

      1. I have taken a similar photo from Mousehole in Cornwall – but not even close to yours … but I thought it was pretty good. *smile – until now.

  3. This is a fantastic image, Carl!
    I can honestly say I’ve never felt scared while taking a photograph, cus well, I’m not a photographer. But you’ve definitely captured that feeling well here. Very impressive!

  4. Beautiful but yes, slightly eerie shot.
    I’ve been venturing into the woods lately to take shots of snow but there have been times when I realized that I was alone in the woods. I was more afraid of wild animals then shady people but still I always make sure I have my cell phone with me at all times.
