A BIT OF THE POLITICALS

By Tish1    
Thank you guys for your great response to my previous upload 'A Post Card from France' you made my day

As some of you may know, there is a bit of an election campaign going on here in the UK, despite the promise that we weren't going to have one, but everyone knows that it is a Ladies parogative to change her mind Grin

With my Aperture Portrait Studio hat on, I was engaged in a publicity event for the Green Party in Sheffield on Thursday 1st of June, which I, surprisingly enjoyed, possibly helped by the sunshine.

As you know, I am not a journalist type photographer and do find these events quite challenging; despite being reasonably tall for a female, I always feel as though I could do with growing at least another 12 inches, for those of you who have gone metric, that is 30cm, I think. Then you have to jossle your way through the crowds, quickly try to find a vantage point and elbow all the competition out of the way, not that I would do such a thing, but I did see it happen, a tip for my next event Grin. Add to the fact, that it also makes me realise, I am not getting any younger, so running around with the young photographers was definitely not on the agenda.

Having said that, The Green Party were very happy with the images that I submitted to them, just a fraction of the 775 that I took, many of which were very similar, that Tommy Gun setting is great GrinGrinGrin

Caroline Lucas, Co Leader of The Green Party attended this event, so, you can imagine there were quite a few representatives from the local and national media, even more competition for a good location.

Anyway, here are some samples of the images I took; I have lead with this image of Caroline Lucas, because I like it, not because it makes any political statement

Please enjoy

Some great shots here. Quite a variety, some posed, some candid, some laughing, some hugging. I like them all.

A fine set of images of this event, Tish, a bit of light-heartedness too there, not all serious as we expect at these do's Smile
