Now that's dedication Bob. I'd be more worried about getting flour in my scalextric but your a martyr to the cause. Nicely done

The motion of the snow is spot on, very creative. I had to make do with some ice ! Love the snowdrift
Thanks! The sieving was quite frantic but in the end I got the one decent shot. Thanks.

Took me a few seconds to see what you did there :) Initial reaction was cool...old retro car, lucky guy! Well done(y)
If only …. Glad I had you confused for a while!! Thanks.

it was only when i read the comments below your picture that I realised this was a staged photo! I think that tells you how good it is! Well played.
Thank you! I showed the photo to some people here and they initially thought it was a photo from back home!!

Exactly, good photo when that happens (y)
Thank you very much.

Didn't know it wasn't snow until I read your post. Very clever and very good.
Thanks Joan.

I love this shot Bob.
Like plenty of others, I had this down as a real rally stage shot, not a model.
:clap:
Cheers Tim

Cracking shot Bob. Thanks for your explanation of how you did it. That must have taken quite a while. Well done for persevering - you have ended up with a belter of an image (y)
It took a while for sure. But it was fun to do. Thanks Lee.

A very inventive and clever take on the theme. Well done for coming up with the idea and the creativeness. :clap:
Thanks very much, Stan.

The flour (and even chocolate powder) is never a problem for the Scalextric freakies I know. They actually prefer it to just plain track. I was a bit worried about my camera, though. Cheers Ian.

That is brilliant, it fooled me. It wasn't until I read your post that I new it was all a big ruse, deception, fake, faux, hoax, counterfeit, fraud :p.

Worth the effort as the shot is awesome, hope it didn't get too messy when the snow melted into dough.

Your efforts have been well rewarded with a great shot, well done. Very creative
Thank you Lindsay.

It can actually happen! Sometimes you get a doughy mess under the braids, and inside around the motor. Anywhere where there might be a drop of oil. Cheers.

TP52 (2019) Week 6 - WAITING

I'm gonna put three shots this week.

I went to a couple of underground train stations to try and get some photos of people waiting. I came across a problem as the lines out of Barcelona weren't running due to some kind of problem, so great I thought, a ready made group at the ticket barrier (#1).

Eventually we were allowed down to the platforms (#2).

In the meantime, and as the railway people said that it wasn't a mechanical fault but rather "some other type of problem", I noticed that there was a somewhat somber atmosphere, people talking quietly etc and I managed to capture the young lady looking lost in thought. (#3)

Unfortunately, there was an incident on one of the lines outside Barcelona. At the moment, it isn't known if it was an accident, or the other reason ……….

No3 for me Bob - the other two just look like a row of people's backs.

Yes, you are right, Dave. Really they are just there to illustrate the story and provide a 'possible' reason for the girl's expression. Maybe she was thinking about what could have happened, or if she would be late etc... Cheers

I agree the 3rd one her expression says a lot, well spotted
Yes, I was actually tempted to approach her and show her the photo, or ask if she minded my using it. But in the end I chickened out. Cheers.

Yep number 3 for me Bob! The expression you've captured is great!
Thank you Daniel.

I like all three, great journalistic story telling.(y)
For a single image, the third one says it all!
Great expression, nicely framed and very well processed.
Did you find out what the incident was?
Hope it wasn't serious!
Thanks for the comments Gareth. And yes, unfortunately someone was run over and killed by a train. It could have been someone trying to cross the line, but it was at a station with platforms so highly unlikely. Possibly an accident, someone fell/collapsed. But, as in other cases I have heard about, the lack of specific information usually implies a more sinister reason. So I reckon someone jumped.

#3 really is the shot of the bunch, in fact shot of the theme in my opinion.
Her expression really does seem to be thoughtful / compassionate, which is the complete opposite of the expressions on people's faces in London when they are delayed for any reason (including jumpers (if that's what caused the delay)).

I like image three the best, but now reading the story the previous two images build up to the third, giving it more context. Like the composition and tones.
Yeah, that was the idea .. to set the scene so to speak. Thanks Dom.

I like No.3 She is in a world of her own, i actually like No.1 as well, everyone is milling around, waiting.
Yep, totally lost in thought. And the milling around was unfolding at that exact moment. As soon as people heard that there was a non-mechanical problem, the rumours started. That's when I got the idea for a 'story'.
Thanks Ian.

Bob, I agree with the many number three. Her expression says it all
Thanks Chris.

Great street shooting, the mono looks great in these.
Yes, for some reason. Most street toggers go for black/white. Must be the "newspaper look" or something like that. Cheers Rick.

Waiting
#3 does it for me. A really nice capture, maybe a little more arm showing at the bottom would be good.
Point taken. Her full arm and the coffee cup would have been better. But I was worried about being spotted so it was focus/shoot and act normal!!
Cheers Dominic

Thanks Tim. Yes, it was a jumper, but there are no more details. And I guess these things are kept out of the papers.

That's a good collection of images for Waiting, Bob, but having read your explanation I agree that #3 is the most fitting. She looks miles away and distracted, and the dark background and use of B&W isolate her face well.
Rough is a clever idea and I like the arrangement of the piles of coins and the highlights reflected in the surface. As Dave said, selective colouring works better with some images than others and I don't often like it, but it does suit this image (y)
