“Photographers deal in things which are continually vanishing.”
The second in a series in which members of our family submit a picture based on a theme. We each have our own take on life and it is interesting to see what transpires. This time we welcome a new contributor, Noel, my nephew.
The theme this time, chosen by Reuben:
Noel, Norwich, UK
“This is a picture of a gift album from Terry Bickers of the band “House of Love”, for whom I was the backline engineer for their recent U.K. album release tour. It was unexpected, and appreciated.
Guy Chadwick, the other ‘face’ of the band, also unexpectedly cooked me an English breakfast on the day after the tour finished when we were dropping of his amplifiers and guitars etc.
Both unexpected kindnesses are acknowledged here as a way of saying thank you.”
Reuben, Grand Rapids, USA
“No explanation needed.”
(Perhaps this is a breaking of ‘The Curse of the Pick Man’. I was born in 1935, Fred Perry was Wimbledon Champion in 1936 and ever since, no Brit has won what is arguably the world’s greatest tennis tournament.)
Corinne, Durham, UK
“I went to the cupboard to fetch a dustpan & brush and found a cluster of tiny newly hatched spiderlings. Quite unexpected and tooo cute!!”

“On her 40th birthday Maureen, my wife, was proud to do cartwheels on the lawn. Two and a half years ago she suffered a stroke. Recently, on her 75th birthday, she surprised me by deciding to check whether she can still do a headstand.”
