Today is the last day in May, and that gives us a five weeker for the Photo of the Month. This photo, I was photographing the Dover Rowing club, standing on a stone Jetty, and these three lads came up near me and I heard them talking. One of them said about vaulting the fence, and another said they couldn’t because “he is taking photos and we might get in the way” so I stopped and told them they were fine. All three thanked me and went and sat down with their legs dangling.
The photo struck me as a “Moment of Summer”. All three seated there, talking about tombstoning – and they decided against it, saying there were too many rocks. I was impressed with the politeness of them, and their intelligence – or lack of stupidity – when talking about jumping in the water.
I did want to photograph the fair (or carnival depending on your country) last night with my shutter open for a couple of seconds to give the impression of speed. I arrived there at 10:02pm and it was closed. Not just closing, but completely shut down, so they must have closed at about 9:30pm. WHat kind of fair or carnival closes at that time on a Friday night?
