Yesterday my daughter and I went bear hunting in Weston. We did great, catching a dozen at least. Thank you to those who are making this a little less unbearable for the kids and kidlets!
On the way home, we decided to have a little competition and take some arty photographs. My eldest is quite convinced that she has an poet’s soul and much talent. I think it’s time we disabuse her of this notion and get her into solar cell engineering, a field in which I am certain she will excel.
Please vote on the following photos and let me know which is your favourite. In the name of science, I shall not say who took which photo. You will have to vote on their merits alone.
In the first, entitled “Childhood restrained” we see an allegorical photograph of a child’s toy seemingly held back by caution tape. Is the tape holding the toy in? Or is it keeping the children out? The background, softened by a long lens and open aperture, shows a play structure, empty, made misty as if by memory or time, accentuating the distance between childhood and the present.
In the latter photo, called “Piece of tape”, we see some tape.
Leave your comment below. “Childhood restrained” or “Piece of tape”? The loser (my daughter) does the dishes.
