This portrait was made by the end of a day, just before sunset at a playground at Chatsworth House Farm. Of course it's not possible to have a sensible look just by telling them to stop and pose - just the opposite would happen. Here Malinka is eating an ice cream and I fired in bursts to get that right moment. Also I shifted around to get the dark background for the highlighted profile which otherwise would get lost against the bright sky.

Going on a tram to school was my daily routine but for mine an my brother's kids an opportunity to go on a tram is a very exotic event and great fun. So when my brother and his family visited us last week, we couldn't possibly miss a visit to the National Tramway Museum in Crich, which is about an hour's drive from Sheffield (and what a nice drive it is, through Peak NP!).
As part of the half term activities in the museum, there were illuminated rides well outside the usual opening hours. What a nice photo opportunity, isn't it?
