Snappers snapping photographers . . .

THIS IS NOT A NEW PHOTO. UNABLE TO GO OUT SO EXERCISING MY MIND.(or what is left of it) recycling SOME OLD POSTS VIA Flash back'. Hope it works.

was reminded of those fairground attractions known as Halls of Mirrors, in which your reflection is repeated as far as the eye can see, when I saw these people photographing people snapping photographers snapping a wedding party at St Paul's Cathedral yesterday ... so I took one, too.

Fave!

Interesting in many ways - philosophically, where do all these endless digital images end up? - clogging computers and hard drives around the world?

Lovely shots and candids

@tristansmum ...Thanks for your kind comment.
@ethelperry ...Hmm ...I too have often thought that the trash-can of history must be bottomless!

I agree with Babs, you do have the best shot of the day, tells a great story and I love the processing :-)

@ellida ... Thank you, Graham.
@onewing @hermann ... Thank you ladies; I agree it was the best of my day, but superlatives are very subjective and depend on the viewer's personal preferences, and just two Faves (which are of course most welcome, and I am sure, honest) tell a quite different sorry, reflecting a wider view -- but I have no complaints; it's nice to have honest opinions, not automatic back-slapping and honesty is what I believe we have here, so thank you all for that.

Fabulous image - so interesting with all the people doing ordinary people things :) - well captured!

Love this. Sometimes the snapshots are as good as the professional photos these days.

@lynnilou @sarah19 ... Thank you both!
Yes, Sarah, even the simplest budget priced digital cameras of today can match the professionals in the right hands, but I think we are all aware that it's not the camera that makes the picture, but the brain behind the finger on the button, and here I must admit a failure . . . I have been required to take wedding photographs many times but they have never been as good as those photographers who do it every day. Experience counts!

I like this, makes you wonder what they are all doing..

Wonderful processing Arthur. I really like all the different photographers going about their business of snapping the shot.
posted July 6th, 2014  
Great fun shot Arthur..

You must be very posh to be able to have a wedding in St Paul's surely? A fave for me because I like the sort painted effect you have done & the wider angle.....your photographers & gussets are all nicely composed standing in the proper places...a very pleasing photo.

Oh deary me of course I put guests but must have spelt it wrong corrected by spell check hilariously!

A lovely shot:-)

I had to look at this to "get it", but when I did, I love so many taking photos! Certainly a commentary of some kind. I also like how all but the two in the forefront looks somewhat like a painting. Really nice.

Great find, like these scenes.

I can never resist photographing photographers photographing... and they're doing it here in grand style.

Keep well Arthur - do what you can and forget about what you can't.
