Mr Milnes tale , captured perfectly
In a moment
Notes of colour , delicately transferred onto
It’s material base
As models go, it sings the
Tale of the Hundred Acre Wood, in wonderful wonder
Uniquely created for a special store,
Reds through to Violets bring characters to life
inside the toy store
the five fifteen from coniston
is about to arrive
sailing through tunnels in mountains
by the big jobs
as the townsfolk stand frozen in time
anchored into a scene that will stay forever
(or until the model-maker returns)
I quite enjoy my photography lessons at BASIC (Brain and Spinal injury centre) in Salford,
Well, I do most days…only last Wednesday was a little different.
The subject was Portrait Photography – and I was one of the Models!!!
It had been so easier behind the camera, One of the group sitting in the chair while we all took our pictures, trying our hand at long portrait shots, close ups and wide shots. It was quite an enjoyable session,
And then it was my turn in the chair….
The Glare of the bright tungsten lights hit me full on. My pals became shadows behind some very large lenses, and for a short while – I saw fireflies when the lights went down.
Pictures taken quick and fast, I lost count at the number of times I scrunched my eyes up.
Turning from east to west at my colleagues requests all the while trying to ignore the camera flash from much bigger cameras than mine.
By the end of the session though, I quite enjoyed my time in the photographers chair…
like a Grecian goddess
you stand there.
