What’s In A Photo…?

I love looking at photos I’ve taken and seeing either things or people I didn’t mean to capture in the shot…

Chances are you will never see the person again, ever, yet you will always have them in that “captured moment”.

To me, these unexpected people in our frame, pose so many questions.

Who are they? Where are they going? What is “their story”?

Recently I posted From Paris With Love... which explains how I managed to capture something wonderful completely by accident. I love, love, love it.

I also created another post called Unthought Known... involving Paris which was quite sad to write. It describes two occasions where I was on holiday, had my photos taken at well known landmarks but when I returned home people I cared about had died or were very, very ill.

On the Paris occasion my Gran actually passed away around the same time as the Paris photos were taken.

When writing the post I reviewed all my Paris photos and I almost fell off my chair when I looked more closely at this one…


Take another look at my Gran and make if it what you will.

This was posted in response to the Daily Prompt hosted by http://dailypost.wordpress.com

“We often capture strangers in photos we take in public. Open your photo library, and stop at the first picture that features a person you don’t know. Now tell the story of that person.”

For more randomness take a look at my Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and YouTube accounts…
