Pops Pics #4 – “DUCK”

Don't miss a thing

This weeks’ Pops Pics is a corker!

If this man doesn’t ‘duck’ quickly, a plan is going to fly straight into his head! Now that’s gotta hurt! Another perfectly timed shot from Pop. He’s a wonder with a shutter you know!

I always wondered, growing up, what the old man was clicking his camera at so often. I remember pulling over frequently on the hard shoulder of various motorways, so he could take a photo. I remember having to wait for him to catch us up on trips & outings out because he was waiting for the right light or the right moment. It’s now apparent that what he was doing was genius! Moments captured like no other. Sometimes it takes age to realise & respect certain things. It’s taken me 27 years to figure out that pop has a real talent for photography… perhaps I should have tapped into it earlier on in life!

    Wow, fab photo! Your dad was obviously way ahead of his time because people didn’t take lots of pictures in those days, like they do now!

      Thanks for your comment. :) He didn’t take lots of photos just made sure each one he did take was perfect. Film cameras make better photographers I reckon, you have to be spraring.
