This is a category for black & white photos of just street photography, just trying to capture them in a moment of time.

Once Upon A Time……..

Once upon a time there was a young airman…… ha ha that’s all you get 🙂  I took this photo wondering if this gentleman had been an airman…..once upon a time.  

Taken on a visit, July 2017, to see the Shuttleworth Collection, at Old Warden Aerodrome, in Bedfordshire, where, there is a wonderful collection of vintage airplanes.  There are also vintage vehicles, and a beautiful garden, I will post about them all later.

A Helping Hand

This photo was about to go in the trash…..I am still sorting photos, when I had a change of heart, and changed it to black and white.  I was so glad I did, it’s a moment in time, a very special moment, my daughter with her youngest son, who was helping her, to dress the table for his great grandfathers wedding day, on the 8th August 2017

Happiness Is……

Happiness is…… for my Father-in-law, being on a foot plate of a steam engine.  I’m not joking, he had the biggest grin on his face from the start to the finish, he loved every minute.  It was Christmas 2016 and we always visit the train station at Sheringham, on the North Norfolk coast, to see if there are any steam trains in.  Luck was with us, and I think I had a big grin on my face, while I photographed him, 

 

Snakes Alive

This is not my normal type of photo, but it is, the day that I came to like a snake.  We were at a country fair somewhere in the county of Rutland in June 2016, and there was the normal type of things like tractors and sheep dogs etc, but there was also the snake man, no ….not really…. but thats what I called him.  We walked into a tent and there was the snake coiled around the keepers neck, I have no idea what type of snake it was  but the colours were beautiful…. I was seeing the snake through the lens of a camera in my mind, it was beautiful.  I knew I wanted to catch the snakes forked tongue darting out, but it was so quick, but then I got my photo (the last photo on the post)……look at the pattern on the scales, it looks like a row of pointy teeth, just like the real thing.  I was just really pleased that the photos came out ok, of course if I had come across the snake in the long grass….it was have been a totally different story.  I also thought it was a good one for my Occupation Category, Wildlife Keeper.

Picnic at Pickering Castle, Yorkshire

I found this photo while putting together a post for Pickering Castle, and it was just such a lovely picnic scene of a family enjoying themselves in the castle grounds.  It was really just cake and crisps, but to those children, it would have been a splendid feast in a castle…….ha ha it would still be that for me 🙂
