In this week’s photo challenge, capture an image that tells a full story in a single frame. We want you to become a documentary photographer and attempt to capture a candid moment of a person, place, or thing. Let your imagination inspire and guide you!
Welcome to my take this week on candid photography … or as WordPress calls it: The SPLIT-SECOND STORY.
Of course I love to tell a story in writing but I try to take my photos in the same way: I take them to tell a story also. Therefore, this week I have included a SETTING THE SCENE photo (the smaller photo) and then the SPLIT-SECOND STORY (the larger photo) underneath it.
It was a lovely family time over Easter in the sunny state of Queensland Australia. Hervey Bay: a beautiful spot four hours drive north of Brisbane. It was autumn here but the weather was as warm and balmy as any lovely summer’s day at the beach.
It is winter now and as we have donned our winter woolies, we keep looking back at those candid shots of our holiday together, dreaming of warmer days and looking forward to doing it all over again at Hervey Bay NEXT Easter! As my grandson Isaac (4) says: “Grandma, let’s talk about Hervey Bay!” every time he sees either grandma. How blessed we felt to share the holiday together with our children and grandchildren.
And of course, there is the photo book I did online for each family; they love to pour over it. In this way, it keeps the dream and the memories alive for them … and indeed for all of us! Family memories are not just ‘made’ … they happen only with a lot of plotting and good planning!
