Street photography : Nigel Borrington

This is one of my most memorable camera moments, captured while shopping on the Via Condotti, Rome. The heavens opened and almost everyone headed towards the shops, as fast as they could. So many in fact that queue’s formed outside each one.

I spent as much time as possible just taking images of this moment.
