Me and Teddy VII, all ready for bed by 

         For the first time, a small boy views the Northern Lights Architectural Light Projection during the Adelaide Festival 2010, under the protection of an umbrella. He stands transfixed, totally absorbed by the spectacle while his sibling runs rings around him.
                  This is what he was looking at >>>>>>>>>>>>

    Stillness and movement in the same shot. Title matches the image. Excellent capture Rhoufi! :-)

  • Hi Linda, thanks. Aren’t these kids just great. They were watching the Northern Lights in Adelaide earlier this year. Remember when you used to made to “get ready for bed” or you couldn’t go out to the DI or somewhere special.

    DI??? Do you mean Drive In. Hee Hee! Hee! Yeah! I remember the good ’ole days and drive ins and being little. Memories…….

  • Yep, the “Drive In”. I think we have one, maybe two left in Melbourne. We used to back the station wagon up and watch through the tailgate. All sad :—(

    And another goodie! Love this Rhou, love the movement :-)

  • Thanks again Ell. This is my fav of the night – same kid as the previous shot, with his brother. He paused while everyone else was moving and twirled his brolly by the monument. Lucky, there I was, camera in hand.

    really like this shot :))

  • Thanks Christine. In amongst all the vibrant colour shots of Adelaide’s “Northern Lights” this is my favourite, and B+W at that: kids out up late, wide eyed and ranging about at high speed;then a pause, just for me. So lucky.

    nice work Rhoufi, perfect in bw.

  • Thanks Aart, yes I really like this. With the colour gone it all came down to the essential subject and his dark coloured dressing gown came out so well.

    such an unexpected and wonderful candid! love the movement :)

  • Thank you Simone. It was an unexpected subject. I turned around and there they were, No time for settings, just take it. Bit slow but then that’s what gave me the movement blur; so lucky. I do love this photo; reminds me of being a kid going to the drive in in my jammies :—))
