Say, ‘cheese’



I don’t.

Say, ‘cheese.’

I ask people to say, ‘sausages,’ if I’m taking a posed picture. It makes them giggle, look at each other, appear more interesting.

I prefer people pictures when they’re odd, casual, quirky.

Catching an elusive moment. And anonymous.

Like these, from Southport Air Show in July.

Through a marquee’s plastic window

Well, he’s playing, goodness knows what though!

Yep, that’s me on the pier with my camera

So I rarely take pictures of people posing.  Rarely take pictures of humans at all, come to that.

But something’s been happening lately.

My re-loved camera appears to have a mind of its own.

It lives in an old leather case. Hangs round my neck, looking borderline professional. Attracting attention.

It keeps finding me interesting subjects. Or making them find me.

Strangers sidle up and ask, ‘Seen anything interesting, have you?’

Or, ‘got some good pictures, did you?’

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
