Ball pool #2

Ball pool #2

If you’re a regular visitor to this blog, you will know that I’m fond of ‘popping a colour’ through a black and white image.

To my surprise, I don’t think this works very well with this photo. It seems like an unnecessary distraction. What do you think?

These children were having great fun running down the hill after the balls. There were one or two tumbles, but that didn’t dampen the enthusiasm (pun intended!).

There seems to be an argument about street photography with many people advocating the use of black and white images. As a newcomer, I’m happy to go with a ‘what works for the shot’ approach. In this case, I think B&W is best.

Walking back to our hotel on a hot June evening, we stumbled on this fun scene. I think it was on Richard Mayr Gasse (but I could be wrong). Several children were playing in the water channel that flows down the street.

I don’t think this wee girl understood what was happening when she put the balls into the water. But she seemed to enjoy it. If you look at the faces of the adults, you’ll see that they were enjoying it too.

Sometimes a simple, straight-out-of-the-camera holiday snap is good enough.
