Our U3A Craft Workshop. Very quiet, very industrious.
Thanks for looking,
Good morning neighbour. Like no1.
Great expressions you have caught in all 3 photos, they look as if they are enjoying themselves, good luck with this great venture, good to see. Oh missed the extra 2, they are fab as well.
what i like so much about the way you do this is the fact that the subjects seem to be oblivious to the fact that you are taking a shot. It really is like reading a picture story book. Irrelevant of whatever the subject is you always get my brain ticking over and there is always something to see and wonder
Superb shots !
What was the main topic of conversation ?
Perhaps not .
It looks as if it's going to be a great success Moira.
Wonderful array of bright colours & the ladies looks very industrious.
Maybe you should call them "Crafty" ladies......
Photographically they are good, but I have to admit I am glad I was not there to be captured, I may have hidden under the table.
Nice set of images Moira, V1 a clear favourite for me,
Nice set of shots.
Good set of images Moira. V1 is my favourite, why does the lady look bored in V3?
Very natural photographs. They obviously take their craft very seriously, and don't seem at all distracted by you and your camera!
A very direct gaze, don't mess with me look.
superb close up of heads...
nice & interesting expressions captured
I like V4 Moria, where does this bit go, great series well done.
Thank you everyone for a wonderful response, and good morning.
In response to a few comments, nobody saw me taking these, I really am very easy to ignore.
I guess the message is that if you want to take candids -
1) Be a middle-aged woman;
2) Look for people concentrating on something.
I should add that Pat, the lady in V1 (and 2 & 3) was the one who got our local U3A off the ground, but then had to stand down from the committee due to severe health problems. She's watching other people steer her ship now...
Very interesting set of images Moira
1) Be a middle-aged woman;....Damn...right of to the shops for my new clothing range....oh and a facial, better get me nails done when i'm there, oh and I could kill for that new pair of shoes.....
then if theres time i'll grab some candids .....lol wonderful slice of real life
I was tempted to say something about you fitting right in there but as I don't want a thump when we finally meet I'll refrain ( for now ). A good collection with your usual unintrusive style, the riot of colour adds to the gathering of what are termed ( not my words ) beige people.
I would like to hear Bill's account of whether you are " easy to ignore "
So they're not crafty ladies then?
V1 has been processed superbly; the lady is so lifelike, it's almost like being there.
The wooden item adorning the wall in V2 makes me think 'Jam and Jerusalem'.
Nice collection of shots, but makes one hope one's own old age will be a little bit more dynamic than theirs... I rather see myself running around with a camera still at their age. Maybe Moira should take it upon herself to introduce them to the craft of photography instead of knitting ? I am sure they would love it a hundred times more
#1 & # 3 are my favourites.
Like the expression and detail you have captured in these Moria - nice set of candid.
Great set, especially #1
Another lovely set of images moira ,,looks like its going to be a success..
Another crackin' set
Lovely series of candids with #1 especially good; great expression.
Fine set. The folks seem to appreciate the program.
wonderful candid shots...enjoyed yesterdays upload as well
No 1 is may favourite but I love the bright colours and natural expressions in all of these.
Super expressions in all of them, great series.
A fine colourful collection of a group of ''crafty'' ladies !!!
Any excuse to get of of their real duties like washing and ironing !!!
Left the poor chaps in the house to fend for themselves !!!
I do like No4. She is feeling guilty and having second thoughts !!!
Nice ones Moira.
I like # 4 also seems to be saying why am I here, , Chuck
sorry Moira, I must draw the line at turning into a middle aged woman. I have seen enough of the change in life cycle to know that I want no part of hot flashes etc even if it means I miss out on taking great candids!
Speaking of great candids, one and all are terrific.
Love that intense stare in no 1 Moira, these crafty ladies make great subjects, well captured, Adrian
What a great set of candids, such great wxpressions.
Great expressions Moira, nothing like off the cuff
Wow - loving these!
all spot on shots
Lovely studies especially no. 1.
Nice set Moira.Photographically No.1 is a clear winner for me.
A nice study Moira.
Love V1 and V3. Just like the old bloke above me. The detail and colour in 1 is exceptional.
Very natural images...well done
another wonderful collection of characters,captured to share with us ,thanks moira
Some great old characters here Moira. Hard to choose a fav, so I'll just say I like them all.
Lovely portraits. Great.
Hot tooty moira. Can you get me an invite please.
An excellent series of portrait and real life. Superbly done. JNC
oh how i love these pictures, they have a lovely safe feel about them
yes the worlds o.k. while these ladies continue to do what they are doing
full of atmosphere so cleverly shot
Fine series, Moira. It's surprising that U3A is not better known. We joined last year and it's amazing how many classes and activities they run.
Another superbly seen and presented slice of real life. These are the types of pictures that will mean something to future generations, unlike the colourful sunsets and moody landscapes we all (myself included) love to shoot. Really well done. Regards Dave
Beautifully caught set of candids. Full of warmth. I love the natural expressions that you always manage to catch so well.
I can do the middle aged woman bit with ease but blending into the background whilst peering through a dslr is a skill that I have yet to aquire.
Hi - great set of images - there is life after work! - Jude.
Fabulous set of candids Moira.
Your crafty camerawork has paid dividends Moira, this is a wonderful set of candids, you've captured some great expressions here
Again, a wonderful series of shots. V4 shows a lady who obviously has "Crafter's Block". I am sure I must have had this expression many times in the past as I sometimes do with my photography. V5 lady is obviously a "good listener".
Have you startles this lady,excellent image.
Love the lady's expression in number 3
