With the arrival of the month of November there are more people around selling poppies as part of the run up to Remembrance Day and it seemed an appropriate subject for today’s theme. I intended to take a picture of the young lady who was selling them in Chichester this afternoon but she looked deeply uninterested in the world and was chatting away on her mobile phone so that rather put me off! As I continued walking through the city I spotted this street cleaner along a side street with his trolley, wearing a poppy on his high-vis jacket. I’m sure he must have thought I was completely deranged when I asked to take his photo but he was amenable enough once I’d explained what it was for. The lurid yellow of his jacket was a little too violent in the original shot so I decided to take the monochrome route and simply highlight the colour in his poppy.
Thanks to Ricky
for setting today’s theme. The other interpretations of this week’s theme can be found here
The “Tuesday Inspiration” began in 2009 when Stefan and I started setting each other a photographic challenge on a… Tuesday. Very soon afterwards, we decided to open this up to other PB members, followed by the idea that we should not reveal what the subject is, so that other members could compare how different members view a single theme. The Tuesday Inspiration is not a contest or a challenge, but a group of people all agreeing to post their interpretation of a single theme on Tuesdays. Each week, one of the contributors sets the theme. There are now over 40 members contributing to the TI. We have only two “rules”: don’t include the subject in the TI title or tags and please comply with standard PB guidelines on courtesy, etc. If you would like to take part, please send me a message via this blog.
