Photo Fridays – Here’s Looking At You Kid!


Here's Looking At You Kid!

Here’s Looking At You Kid!

This photo, taken by my awesome partner, D, totally encapsulates the fun of two shutterbugs travelling together. A few moments before this shot, D was shooting me from across a ledge in the Colosseum (see below). As he was shooting I was surrounded by a swarm of school kids who happily and, for the most part, blindly got in his shot. So we went with it and he got this amazing pic. Note the very cool kid with the thumb’s up behind me who made this photo the memorable one it is. Good times.

  1. Lovely, delightful. Thank you!

  2. Quite an engaging and delightful photo on many levels … B&W with its contrasting coloured focus, your photographic “action”, the “thumbs up” girl, each of the contrasting crowd figures, the observing girl in the background and the list goes on.

    • Thanks Wayne. D is quite pleased with the pic and my adjustments. There’s a lot going on and lots of interesting gazes and expressions to wonder about. For instance I wonder if the man with his hand to his forehead was annoyed at something or just hot. It was the hottest day of our trip, easily 30 degrees.

  3. Beautiful! I love the boost in color on the photographer! A lot of photographers choose to completely desaturate the surroundings but I’m glad you didn’t!
