The Ghosts of Debenhams

Looks deserted doesn’t it? I shot this photo around 10am this morning with bustling traffic, pedestrians walking each direction, a girl on her phone standing in the entrance to Debenhams looking around. People waiting at the bus stop even.

Where are they gone? By taking around 20 shots of this scene and averaging out the differences all that was left was the building behind and some slight blurring around the bus stop.


Another one I shot of Brown Thomas didn’t work quite so well because I was using the bus stop as a DIY tripod and my camera moved during each frame but I do like the odd fuzzy feel of this image.
