photoblog image Edgar And Tim

Edgar And Tim

Those of you who went to the meet at the Black Country Museum, Dudley last year will recognise the two gentlemen so ably photographed and posted on Shutterchance by Richard Trim last Autumn. This is my version of the same two gentlemen, I guess they had more photos taken of them in a few minutes that day than at any time in their past lives, or at least for a few years.  The colour version of this image was selected for display in the recent Leicester and Leicestershire Photographic Society exhibition.

Yes...I remember Richard's efforts, Brian.

Really like yours as well, and feel it might have been difficult for you as you don't generally get in peoples' faces with your camera.
Brian Walbey: I might not have been quite so brave if I hadn't been in a crowd of photographers Ray.

This is a superb portrait Brian. Really detailed study. Well done with the photo selection for the exhibition. Deserved entry..
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Savo.
Congrats... They are quite the characters.
Brian Walbey: They are indeed Jacquelyn, the phrase "salt of the Earth" might apply.
I remember seeing these guys! I think I like your B&W image here!
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Elizabeth.

This is a brilliant picture Brian: one of the best you have ever shown

Oh yes, Brian. A day to be remembered for a long time by all who were there. Very nice in B&W.
Brian Walbey: We really enjoyed that day Ginnie, I have still post some of my "ordinary" shots I took while we were there.

A different choice for you, Brian. Very good
Brian Walbey: We were all gathered round these chaps in the Fish and Chips queue with Mr.Trim doing the talking so I just popped a couple of shots off, as did others.
I remember the colour version,, life in old hippies yet. Nice shot.
Brian Walbey: Thanks John.

A fine and admirable portrait of these two gents Brian. This would surely win you a prize.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chad. Actually we had a "Candid" competition at my club in the Autumn but the judge said this wasn't candid as there were two people and you could see more than their head and shoulders, mine wasn't the only entry considered in that way. Needless to say he is not being invited back.
B&W can strengthen a portrait like this
Brian Walbey: Yes I felt that Chantal, although the one in the Leicester exhibition in the spring waa the colour version.

I thought they looked familiar
Brian Walbey: Yes you were there of course when we took our pictures of them.
This is a splendid picture of these two characters Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Bill.

Yes, I remember these two local lads. Tim's life seems to be bit harder and more serious than Richard's Tim's life - the black t-shirt might enhance this feeling - but I like this photo, too.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Philine.
Congratulations Brian. This is a superb portrait!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard.
Terific Brian ...a zillion times better than mine.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, a Zillion, how many noughts has that got?
Good B&W treatment, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tom.
Ha! And who said you don't get characters anymore?
Brian Walbey: They really were two characters Graeme, with great Dudley accents as far as I can remember.

I remember the original. Although I'm not keen on b&w landscapes, this type of image works well in b&w. Good for you giving it a go; I don't feel comfortable doing these.
Brian Walbey: Sometimes I think candid works well in B.& W.. To be honest Mr.T.done all the talking and we others took pictures, I'm not normally as brave with such pictures.
