Learning to balance (1 of 2)

Learning to balance (2 of 2)

At the girl’s school sports day – getting ready to start.



  1. The top image has the compositional element of Naomi (?) vertical and the piles and posts vertical which I like. The lower image has a fallen/falling Naomi which breaks the pattern. Perhaps they would make a good diptych? The monochrome helps Naomi to stand out well from the background. I also think the top image has the edge over the lower due to the fact that Naomi’s face can be seen.

  2. A very good pair. I am not sure which is best as, having seen both, one is in need of the other! But I tend to the second one because the geometry of the fencing is better, there isn’t the distraction of the arm on the right and her action is more interesting.

  3. This one isn’t Naomi. School sports day throws up lots of little vignettes if you are in a place where they are not yet worried about parents making pictures! It’s a funny thing, but I’ve been asked, many times, for prints of other people’s children after school events, which I’m happy to do of course, and I wander around with my non-threatening little rangefinder and whatever lens I have on and make pictures of things I see and like. This was M9 with Zeiss 85.

    The little girl will be starting school in about a year and was trying herself out on the logs, being given the freedom to explore and enjoy without hindrance.I tend to agree that they work as a diptych and struggle to name a favourite really.
