Two Bums and a Bull

Two Bums and a Bull

A recent walk generated this image. Jessica and Grace being the stars. It was a long walk and I thought the girls managed rather well, being by far the youngest. Perhaps that's why! Jessica climbed on the gate to watch a rather flighty and testosterone fueled bull. I thought this could make for a great shot so moved swiftly to be certain the image was symetrical. It was then that Grace joined her on the gate. I prefer (find easier) images that I can control (i.e. static) but I also wish to capture those images that are spontaneous. I knew that I would have little time to get this and it is then your skill and knowledge of your camera comes into play. Too shallow a DoF and the impact of the bull would be lost, too much and then you may have to overepose and therefore may blur it. I made some adjustments and started clicking and managed to catch this.

It was then down to the title. I knew immediately this would have the potential for a good title but couldn't for the life of me think of one. A while later Jessica runs alongside and says "You know that photo you took of us?" "Yes" I replied "Well I have a title for it" "What's that then?" say I. Quite proudly Jessica says "Two Bums and a Bull". I couldn't agree more. Thanks everyone, that walk was most memorable.
