Seniors Snap & Click


Ferdie was acclaimed for the best portrait. I have this theory, that the longer a couple stays together the more they come to resemble each other. I see a resemblance in character between Ferdie and his subject. His subject was sitting down at Circular Quay last Tuesday week.


Although I forget her name, I will not forget her joy and her enthusiasm on having her photograph acclaimed for composition. She was so chuffed at getting off 'P'.

And below is the Tuesday group of Seniors with yours truly. Now, I seem to have the task of contacting all by email and sharing the shots of the ceremony. If only one or two of us keep getting together for shooting expeditions it will have been well worth it.

Coould be the same person a few years on! All the facial bones, even the nose are from the same mould!

Indeed, although Ferdie is Filipino, whereas his subject is indigenous Australian.

Love the beauty is a weathered/aged face, there is so much character, wisdom and so many stories, as opposed to those super-smooth plastic fantastic botoxed, facelifted visages in the media.

I'm glad you had fun. Which of your photos was in the exhibition?

Julie said...

Ah! Now, the one of mine in the exhibition was chosen by me. The tutor was going to work on the girl on the bench (Look at me, Look at me) but I wanted him to work on and submit the B&W of lines (Groundhog Day). He did not like this one because I had taken it in B&W and it left him little to do in PhotoShop.

Having whinged though, I did like 3 of the 4 winners.

I wonder if any of the others in your group are bloggers. I'm sure they'd each be different, interesting blogs.
