A group is out photographing in Russell Square. The previous frame shows them all zooming in on something across the park, now they are ‘chimping’ (not all, two have clocked me turning the tables). ‘Chimping: What one does after taking a picture with a digital camera and looking at the result. Derived from the words they speak when chimping: “Ooo-oo-oo!”’ (urbandictionary.com). Erickimphotography.com gives ‘10 Reasons Why You Should Never Chimp While Shooting Street Photography’. There are probably more than ten reasons why you shouldn’t try street photography in a group of nine.
