Refuge From The Storm. August 20, 2012

At this weekend’s Heath Fair, a sudden rainstorm sent the crowds scurrying for cover. Among the varied refuges was the Heath Free Library’s tent, presciently provided with windowed walls which kept the storm at bay while providing a safe haven for dreaming:

I watched this young man for some while, shooting with a rain sleeve over my camera. It seemed risky from the perspective of my equipment, but important enough to press on, taking whatever precautions I could against the weather.

I think this shot is my favorite from three days of shooting at this particular fair, both for the emotional roots of it and for its unanticipated quality. As much as getting the shot I set out for pleases me, surprises are what fuels my desire to photograph.

A beautiful photograph! Nothing warms my heart more than the sight of a child engrossed in a book.

Thanks, Cuz. 🙂

And Pat, welcome to my humble e-bode! Sorry to miss your talk at the fair, I was full-on running to get as many images for the Independent as I could.

Good luck with The Roses at the End of the Road!
