Hillsborough 19 years on - 2

Thank you for yesterdays comments. It is a very tough subject to photograph and I made the decision to respect peoples privacy rather than snap away. If I had a 400mm zoom lens I could have comfortably taken photos in the stadium. Close up shots of people crying and the like. However that would have easier because I was further away, detached from the situation. There’s something to be said for the 50mm limit and getting stuck into a crowd. You can appreciate the situation a lot more when you’re a part of it.
