Shadows at the Chateau

By dark_lord  
A combination of Film Friday and Saturday Shadows.
The Phototravellers group waiting to enter Chenonceau Chateau in July 1991
Sadly I guess many of these photographers are no longer with us, and as far as I can find out the Phototravellers company ceased to exist in 2009.

Thank you to all who commented or voted on Your Deepest Fear (and well done if you viewed large Smile).

From the days when camera clubs or groups of photographer used to visit places, en masse, but curtailed a lot during covid. Plus, mobiles are taking over now! I see one man with a tripod in a bag, so he is serious!!

I like this for so many reasons. Well within my adult memory it nonetheless represents a significant shift in technology, dress, attitudes and what might be regarded as a significantly altered kind of conviviality. As far as I can see everyone here seems to be engaged and involved in a shared activity; we haven't lost that but the pernicious distraction of the mobile phone seems to have interfered with our capacity for quiet, uninterrupted reflection. Then again ... I'm knocking on a bit so must be on my guard against rose tinted nostalgia! The good old days were no better than they ought to have been!
I hope they had gateaux at the chateau when the tour was over.
A glorious image and one for the archives! Gong! 😀 🏆
