One of the difficult things in photography is capturing the human form & portraits. (my opinion).
I find that children are easier than adults.
Adults are, for the most part, not appreciative of how difficult it is, unless the image is flattering to them, in their minds.
I never shoot adults. ( I`d like to shoot the rude ones), so I practice with my twin. This was taken today on the spur of the moment with no prep. The lighting was good & the bricks were there. For technical practice, every photographer should definitely take portraits as often as possible. It`s a humbling excersise. An old artist friend of mine, who I spent many years with, had portraits of his twin from the time he was 16 years old till age 70, painted in oils, every few years.
In the header, a drum circle of natives from the Great White Beyond. That`s higher up than the North one.
And for the revolution go have a drink on Planet Earth.
I`m falling asleep so I`ll wish you all a sunny day tomorrow & be sure to be nice to someone. Anyone, ..please.
