Great macjake 2017-07-30 9:52

Hi Gert
yes, i would call this nothing special, not much going on here other than the cute kid pretending to be some sort of race car driver on his bike, maybe chasing down this father :)

I prefer the city WS photo with the ladies walking, that one shows an attractive city view with the streets.
as a grouping they all compliment one another, i'm not knocking this photo at all, it certainly has its charm and interest as well. The kid is stealing the show :)

I'll post my first TE Vancouver shot tonight, its still only 10am here.

cheers
Craig

Default To macjake: special nothing special

Thanks Craig,

The reason I kind of like this photo is exactly because there is nothing going on, except maybe in the kid's mind. It's just a glimpse of daily life, not a photo I had planned weeks ahead. I just saw them coming down the street, snapped a photo (fortunately at the right moment), and that's it. But to me there's a lot more drama than in the WS, where absolutely nothing is happening, unless the girl with the mobile phone would step in front of the lady on the bike. Here you have a little kid obviously imagining taking part in a real bicycle race, trying his best to overtake his dad. This was an important moment to him on that particular day.

Not much is happening, but that's what life is usually like, and when i manage to capture that "not much" I am quite happy.

Cheers,
Gert
