I spoke with Daniella, who has just finished her first year at university and who is studying something difficult like politics and law or economics (I apologise Daniella as I know that is not quite right) and she kindly agreed, after checking my reasons for wanting to photograph her, to let me take this picture of her. I wish her well with her studies.
Juxtaposition – which is more interesting?
Ms Valentine, whom I spotted outside a store in town looking decidedly interesting, was more than pleased to show off the tattoos of her favourite bird, the crow. I asked Amy if I could photograph one (later all) of them and she showed me this one on her index finger. I was very close with a wide lens and still managed to get this unguarded shot. Thank you AV – hope you like them.
I noticed this lady sitting in the sun and asked if I might take her photo. LIke all of us, she felt she is not beautiful enough but I thought she had a wonderful face. Her accent was not truly English and I asked her where she was born. ‘Eastern Prussia’, she told me. Her family fled the country during the Second World War and made their way to the UK. I hope they have been happy here.
This delightful lady came toward me on a rather grey day and she looked so vibrant and colourful I asked if I could photograph her. She was happy for me to do so and I am so glad I did. Sometimes we need reminding that life can be fun in all sorts of ways.
