MONOCHROME MANIA - PART 1 #10

Club Outing

We had an evening out from my Camera Club, at Godmanchester, just outside Huntingdon. I don't know what these two were snapping but I caught sight of them through a gap in the fence and thought it made a good shot. I presume they must have got me in their pictures also.

Once again we reach the weekend so I hope you have a good one, I will be back with the final week of part one of this series on Monday.

(All of the pictures in this series were taken on B&W.film, developed and printed by me, and sometimes entered into Club competitions.  This is original monochrome work and the only digital bit is scanning the prints into Photoshop and preparing them for display here.)

So you were a peeping tom in your earlier years. You are bringing back your old memories Brian LOL grin
Cool capture.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tracy, I did keep in touch with the front guy for a number of years but then suddenly nothing. Thanks for your comment.
Did you ever see the picture they took of you Brian? Nice shot!
Brian Walbey: I don't think I saw their pictures Chris and I can't remember what they were taking either.

This is a very dynamic photograph, Brian. They almost look to be posing. Great stuff.
Brian Walbey: Thanks for your comment Chad.
Funny one ! Great in B&W
Brian Walbey: Thanks for your comment Zeb.
I can't help wondering what they were taking if this is through a fence. Perhaps they were looking for sports pictures and this one is fencing?

Love the picture Brian. Have a good weekend.
Brian Walbey: Lol Bill. Thanks for your comment, have a nice weekend yourself. I can't remember what was here to be photographed, only where it was, Godmanchester, just outside Huntingdon.
Photographing photographers always seems to make an interesting shot. Like the conversion on this one. (:o)
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ros. This wasn't a converstion, this whole series is from B&W negative film in the 1970's.
Great capture Brian. They might have captured you as well!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, they might well have captured me, hope I didn't shatter their lensessmile

Good capture Brian - were they trying to take you as well?
Ingrid
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ingrid, I don't remember what they were taking at the time, perhaps they wanted a picture of the handsome fellow that was me all those years ago :-D
Ha! I remember jumpers like that ... Oh dear!!!!
Great composition Brian. richard
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, I'm afraid quite a few of us remember jumpers like that.

Heehhee.. good shot, Brian; fascinating to see the change in style of the cameras.

I'm insterested in the legs with the whitish shoes; the angle of the legs suggest that they don't belong to the chap stood up!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan, SLR's were a lot more "clunky" in those days. The chap with the shoes is sitting on a bench or something if I remember rightly, hence the funny angles of his feet and legs.

The guy at the back must be on a small stool to get into that position
Nice shot Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Aussie, I think he was sitting on a bench, hence the funny angle.
ha, nice one Brian and enjoy the weekend too smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks for your comment Tim
Oh yes!..well caught..I bet you get some laughs with the boys. Its something like I used to do. Nice one.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ron, unfortunately the members in my current Camera Club don't seem to want to out in a group.
Well spotted and captured all those years agowink
Brian Walbey: Thanks Nigell, I just wish I could remember what they were taking, it certainly wasn't me!

Brian Walbey: Thanks for your comment Alan.
