Plaza de Espana, Seville, taken October 2017.
I was really pleased with this shot, as while the dancer was moving swiftly to music I timed it just right to get her facing towards me, with the fan and arms outstretched. Despite the fact there was a sea of people around her watching, with a bit of vignetting and playing with the shadows I managed to isolate her. To me, a flamenco dancer is iconic to Spain.

I was experimenting with taking photos from ground level, to get a different perspective. I like the way it gives attention to the cobbles, but the eye is still drawn to the structure of the building.
I took a few of these at the time, but this was the best – I just wish I hadn’t got the guy walking into the shot. I guess I could have Photoshopped him out, but in a way he gives a slightly warped sense of scale which I quite like!
