photoblog image From The Competition Folder 19/28

From The Competition Folder 19/28

GENERATIONS

I can't remember which competition I used this image for, I think it might have been Candid but I'm not sure.  It was taken at the National Trust property at Sudbury Hall, Derbyshire.  What struck me when I first saw it was that I had captured three distinct generations in one unposed picture quite by accident.

The picture is not loading so I will just have to imagine what a great shot it is, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Sorry about that ray, give it another go if you get time.

3 generations, indeed, Brian. Sometimes it's not until later, after we take them, that we see the serendipity in our images!
Brian Walbey: I agree Ginnie, sometimes what one hasn't seen at shutter press time is a bonus, other times it can be a nuisance and spoils the shot.
Great title Brian and i love this shot....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Peter.

This is worth a prize Brian: nice shot
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris, it hasn't had a prize but it does depend on the strength of the opposition on the night.
You also caught somebody reading, Brian!
Brian Walbey: Indeed Juan, he's reading the Daily Mail which, if one is of left wing persuasion, is detested by one and all.
I think it's delightful Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard.
That's also fine old brick!
Brian Walbey: I thought that Tom.

I agree tthat it is interesting to see three generations like this Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chad, a pure accident I can assure you.
I really like the backdrop here to this candid Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Fred, as Tom said they are fine bricks aren't they.
These 'accidents' can be real gems, just like this Brian smile
Brian Walbey: Indeed, thanks Martin.
Shot of a life time Brian superb capture.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Peter.
great, three generations in one capture
Brian Walbey: A pure accident Chantal, but it works in this case.

Yes, that what struck me, too. Good to see "modern man" copimng with childhood. I'm sure when I was the age of the baby, this was considered to be "women's work".
Brian Walbey: I do vaguely remember pushing the pushchair for our two, but it was 30+ years ago.
This makes it worth going through our old archives again and again. Nice capture, and I like those bricks.
Brian Walbey: Indeed it does Sheila, thanks.
There was room for another generation between the two men smile
Brian Walbey: You could well be right there John.
This is a lucky accident Brian. This image is wonderful!
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Richard.
Yes. Your finger was on the shutter at the right time Brian
Brian Walbey: More by luck than judgement Janet.

Different generations in one picture (oh sorry, I am now reading that yourself have just said that) - and a contrast of movement and resting - everybody is lost in his own thoughts.
Brian Walbey: The lad with the pushchair was tearing along to get somewhere in a hurry.

These unposed shots are usually the best - you don't always know what you have in them until you download
Brian Walbey: I certainly didn't with this one Lisl.

I can just hear what the young man thinks.... and that is not even fit to be translated HA smile
Absolute great shot.
Have a great weekend.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much for your comment Astrid, the weekend will be good if the weather dries out a bit!

You have also captured the blue chested Daily Mail reader in its natural habitat!
Brian Walbey: Indeed I have Ingrid.
And captured well, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Graeme.
