Ann 91/100 - Bailey and Dylan

They look so happy and comfortable with each other, although as a parent I would caution Dylan about putting something like that in his mouth.

Now this is a demographic I dont have much of ... just the young recorder player at the Folk Festival ... I never know whose permission to ask ... both child and parent I guess ...

Julie said...

Got your disease this morning ... wanted to add that the flag is a nice touch ... I have mine at home "growing" in a pot plant!

Ann said...

This was a grab shot. I was walking by, the two kids were mucking about and the flag caught my eye. I took a quick shot, realised it was good, then decided to apologise to the parents for not asking and they said it was fine.

Julie said...

I am always hesitant with kids, especially this age.

I am adding other Stranger blogs to our side-bar as I find out about them. That okay with you? Clueless from Boston is going to start tomorrow, too.

Support is always a wonderful thing ...

Ann said...

Fine. I'm trying to encourage a friend of mine in Simla (not CDP), I'd like to add her as well, if she does. What happened to getting the others on board - no takers?

Julie said...

Yes, by all means add her ... and others you come across in your blog-travels. I always ask first, even for a link.

Meaning Cara & Joan. They are positive toward it but feel they need to clear a few things first. Cara is considering starting when she goes back to the UK for a holiday which must be coming up real soon. I think Peter and his wife go to Lake Eyre at the end of this week. Hopefully, he will find some real real strange strangers out there.

Ann said...

Peter's been so quiet I thought he'd already gone. I'd love to go out there, especially when its got water.

Joan Elizabeth said...

I am trying to figure if I have the space to take on yet another challenge right now ... saw something on TV the other day of a pre-war German silent movie of "People on Sunday". Thought that might be a way I could join in without stressing myself i.e. take photos of People on Sunday.

Yes P is very silent must be getting ready for the trip.

Julie said...

I think that is a good way of doing it, Joan. I am going to try to improve my night shots and just post one a week, probably on Sundays. Saretta is doing her Molfettan Faces just intermittenty - weekly I think but cannot remember exactly.

The problem with Peter leaving it for so long is that he will have trouble getting back into the swing and the commorarderie(sp?) of the early shots has gone because two of us have all but crossed the finish line.

Abe Lincoln said...

This is a nice portrait. I like it a lot. It reminds me of those kind Steffe does so well.

Julie said...

That is a wonderful comment from Abe, Ann. I know how much he admires Steffe's work.

Bravo!

Ann said...

I'm not familiar with Steffe's work. Must take a look. An accolade from Abe is high praise indeed - I'm flattered.

Although I've been trying to post regularly up to 100, I take mine in blocks, I won't take any for weeks then I'll go out on the weekend and take 20 or so.

Although I intend to continue I have no idea how frequently or infrequently I will post in the future.

Steffe is A photo from Haninge in Sweden.

Re the frequency of posting. You may find, like I have, that once you reach the target, the burn goes out of the project. I am now allowing some of my subjects to show on Sydney Eye. I have learnt new techniques and I am employing them in all my blogs. Once these ANZAC Day photos are posted - and once you reach your 100 - I will slow down too. I want to post just like I do for blogs other than SE - when I have something to say. And then the text will become just as important as the image. It usually is for me and this project has been different on that point for me.
