Kenny Toal of Tyne Tees Television launching Prudhoe Aged People's Treat, with the Vicar looking on.
The Treat is a long-established tradition, a three-day-long party for the town's pensioners provided by volunteers and paid for by fund-raising in the town and sponsorship from local businesses.
I just liked the composition. Particularly as Kenny is thoughtfully concealing a large, bright EXIT sign on the wall behind him...
I found photographic conditions tricky, but not half as difficult as ITV found them – their lens kept steaming up and they had to come back and re-shoot the next day.
Thanks for looking,
Moira

Wonderful expressions, Moira. I'd like to know what the vicar might be thinking at the moment. Wink

The movement in his hand and the vicar's snigger tells a great story.

KT looks as though he's wearing a jumper given as a christmas present from great aunt Nell!! Excellent expression from the Rev, and the star polishes off the composition.

I wonder what was going through the Vicar's thoughts?

Maybe your lens is more accustomed to steamy situations than ITV's?

A hundred bowls of hot soup... Not a frequent occurrence anywhere, I imagine.
Thanks folks, we are back from an Audience at the Court of King Danny (Tesco coffee shop). I like Ron's three dimensions comment, the inclusion of the Christmas decoration was deliberate. The Vicar was waiting to say grace, which he kept mercifully short. I just thanked providence for the black stage curtain, which is a real boon.

Oh he is. Charles is the best thing that's happened to our town in years - and that comes from a Humanist! He's also Chair of the Community Partnership that got the funding to build the new library, he organised the Jubilee Street Party...
Cheers everyone, I have to go and queue in the Post Office this afternoon. I may be gone some time...

I love their expressions, especially the Vicars. And that little Christmas ornament is perfect. I keep thinking mistletoe (know it isn't) but it is like it is teasing (kiss, kiss).
An excellent composed shot Moira.......Sandy
Also, you just know the one talking is looking out at an audience, you can feel the audience.

The Treat sounds like a fantastic thing, Moira.

You've shot this so well but I tell you what I really love in this. Ok...the funny thing about photography is that it not only captures a moment BUT also captures what a moment may NOT be necessarily about depending on expressions captured. Here, to me, the expression on the vicar's face looks like he's detached from the moment and remembering a funny joke or event Grin

Moment in time - I'm wondering what has taken the vicar's attention.

This kind of perspective "distortion" is also very interesting - because of the close proximity of the two the vicar looks like a tiny person Smile

I thought all venues were non-smirking these days!

That's a fine image Moira, you've overcome the difficulties very well indeed. These dark background can be helpful in some ways.

I looked at this much earlier and meant to comment then but I forgot.
The movement in KT's right hand caught my eye and that lone decoration tells it's own story.

Nice movement in the speakers hand. I like this, good composition. A meaningful documentary image.
You should have given ITV a few tips on how to do things Moira.
