My second encounter with Fukushima Dolphin busking in Brighton happened by chance. I stumbled across the band again in November. It was 7th November to be precise.
If you’ve been reading my blog you’ll know that I first came across Fukushima Dolphin back in September. Right then I made a mental note to look up their music and keep an eye out for the next time they were playing locally.
Basically because the band is awesome and so are their fans.
Ironically, I was photographing in Brighton for a totally different reason that day.
I’d been covering a protest march by the Covid Anti-Vaxxers and Anti-Lockdown movements during the day and switched to some Brighton street photography later in the afternoon.
That’s when I found the band busking again, this time on Brighton seafront, quite by chance! What a gift for a street photographer!
Fukushima Dolphin and their Fans
I had some feedback from friends about my last Fukushima Dolphin post. One observation was that most of my images were of the fans rather than the band.
Excellent! That’s quite deliberate. It’s actually a compliment to the band as their ability to captivate and hold an audience is simply remarkable.
That ability is precisely what I’m aiming to capture with my images. After all, street photography is all about people!
