I had been thinking about doorstep photo shoots for a while but I wasn’t too sure if it was the right thing to do. However as V.E. Day approached it occurred to me that it would be a really lovely keepsake for everyone to have on this special day. We are all in the throes of a historic event celebrating the 75th anniversary of a historic event. It really should be recorded so that it can be shared with future generations. Who doesn’t like looking through old photographs right?
I decided to put a Facebook post out and see what my neighbours though and I was delighted and very surprised at the extent of the uptake. So this morning I set off with my camera and bottle of water (no dog today – too hot for an excitable springer spaniel!) and head off on my daily exercise with a difference. It has been a glorious day weather wise and it was just a lovely seeing everyone dressed up for their photos. Houses were decorated with bunting and flags, lots of people wearing red, white and blue or their favourite outfits and all were in good spirits.
Over 30 households took part and although the photo was a gift from me to them, some residents have made a donation to NHS Charities Together or Help for Heroes.
V E day costume of the day has to go to this young man. How awesome does he look!
If there is anyone I photographed today that would like to be featured please let me know and I will add you.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
Would you like to print your photo?
If you would like to print your photo so you can display it, and I highly recommend you do, I recommend The Print Space to all my Clients. Their prints are fantastic quality and a true reproduction of my edited images. I suggest the C Type Fuji Matt for a professional lustre print. If you prefer a beautiful textured Fine Art Print I suggest Hahnemuhle Photorag or German Etching.
