A snap that pleases
Sometimes a bad photo is also a good photo

2003 – I remember sneaking this photo because wanted period look of daughter and hat as a timeless tourist with this background. The pose and Paddington coat just finished it off. More of the detail came out than expected.
What’s to like?
A sort of harmony. Lines of travel, light flooding and melting – daughter’s feet dissolving in light flood,which reappears at top of head and shoots up, guided by the pointing arm, to the window spots above; upwards and out of the frame on opposite side. Water channel and arches framing folk, joining and dividing dark and light – pattern everywhere.
