I'm going to sound a bit silly here but when I took this picture I got a real rush of adrenaline. It happens very rarely, but sometimes when I press the shutter I kind of hold my breath and inwardly go "Woohoo!". Well, this picture almost never got to see the light; I shot it on film and when I went to wind the roll back the film snapped in half! As I hadn't taken a digital back-up my heart truly sank. There were also some shots of Oomoo and my father-in-law that were very special on that roll, and at the time of taking the pictures I thought that as I was shooting film we'd at least get prints for once (yup, I'm still not printing my digi shots - are you?). Luckily the people at Snappy Snaps could save most of it and when I saw this (which I'd forgotten I'd taken) I almost punched the air. And the Oomoo and Grampa shots were OK too - phew!
i can see you held your breath for this one, amazing shot. i never print my digital photos, i imagine them just fading away from the paper... weird thoughts. anyway - your blog is a nice discovery.ReplyDelete
i do love a film story with a happy ending.ReplyDelete

lovely. and the story behind it too.ReplyDelete
What a wonderful photograph and Yay! about saving the rest of the film.ReplyDelete
i've yet to print anything i've taken on film yet (though if i do, i will print from home as thankfully i have a great photo printer).ReplyDelete
this shot is fantastic. strange i saw a similar pattern on my upstairs wall today where a painting my grandmother passed to me is hanging. were it not for the doorbell ringing, i would have snatched the opportunity to shoot, but it was lost on me by the time the visitor left.
so glad you could salvage this along with the rest.
SO glad it was saved!
(happy belated birthday to oomoo! Is he feeling better?)
phew, i'm happy for this happy end...this shot is beautiful!ReplyDelete
