WHY?

After the wedding ceremony all the guests were standing and talking, one of those occasions where old friends and family are re-acqainted. I noticed this young girl wondering aimlessly amongst the old grave stones when suddenly with a sense of purpose she quickly walked directly to this stone about 20 yards ahead, she stood looking at it for a while as though carefully reading the inscription. Raising my camera to capture this rather touching moment a voice next to me said thats my daughter, by now the girl had squatted down to read the lower part of the stone. Not wanting to miss the shot I asked if she minded me takeing the photo which I may make public pointing out that her face would not be seen, no objection was made so here is the result.
The big question is why was she drawn to that one particular grave out of the hundreds that exist in this ancient church yard with such enthusiasam. I asked her mother if she had been here before or was there any family connection both replys were negative, next I asked if her daughter could read ''hardly'' was the reply ''she is still at the cat and dog stage with her reading''
Every time I look at this image I have to ask myself the same question.

Autumn Sheffield Park.

I knew this would be my one and only chance to visit Sheffield Park for the Autumn colour this year, it had rained heavily all morning but around midday the cloud started to break. With my gear in the car I set off with some reservations as to the weather holding off, dark ominous clouds drifted rapidly across the sky. On arrival the car park was full, due to the rain the overflow parking was not in use as it only consists of fields which would have soon been churned into a sea of mud. Finally I managed to park about an hours walk away, I decided to travel light leaving most of my kit behind I went with camera, two lens,spare battery, and a polythene bag in case of a downpour. 
On reaching this part of the park I very much regretted leaving my tripod behind as the passing clouds created an ever changing spectacle of light and shadow, it would have made a stunning time lapse.
