One Man And His Dog!

One Man And His Dog!
So, this week's Sunday Challenge was ground level ... camera no more than a few inches of the ground or at least as low as you can get.

And it didn't matter what you shot once you were down there, so I decided to use this photograph, which I took at Ripon Old Cars last weekend.

Interestingly, I'd sought out this vantage point because of the trouble I have getting up and down taking shots in the main arena due to having dodgy knees caused by too much road running in my younger days.

Anyway, enough about my ailments, for this show I decided to try and capture the majority of exhibitors as they were arriving.

Having them come to me so to speak once I'd got into a low down position greatly reduced the amount of times I had to move. Not only did it save my knees somewhat, but it also got rid of another pain I have to contend with at shows when trying to get clean shots ... visitors!

The exercise proved so successful that I actually had to switch back to shooting only JPEGs to keep going and even then I filled the card before I'd taken all the shots I would have liked to take.

Thankfully though, not before I'd captured this Lomax 223, which for those that don't know is a hugely popular three-wheeled kit car.

Both the driver and his passenger looked so happy to have their photo taken I decided this had to be the shot I'd submit for the challenge this week. They both made me smile and hopefully they'll have the same effect on you too!

Alex@ndrin, Giovanni Racconta, Kaunos, Василий Касимовский and 19 other people have particularly liked this photo

Ordinarily I might have tried that Sami, but as the cars were actually moving or could move at any second I could only go as I could still see through the view-finder. Had I been certain it would remain stationery I may well have tried a few blind shots. :)
