The Daydream

Posted by
Ian Bramham (Manchester, United Kingdom) on 21 August 2007 in Transportation and Portfolio.

"John's memory of that fateful encounter two summers ago was now fading like the sepia tint of an old photograph, although the vision of that beautiful woman looking down at him from the upper deck of the No 9 bus would forever remain etched into his minds eye, vivid and untouched by time.
In vain had he searched the bus for her and for the remainder of his days would always recall her face with a deep sense of unfulfilled promise....

Written in humble homage to Peter Ferenczi at PartialSight - the best photoblog on the web - the humorous and insightful captions attached to his photos are always guaranteed to lighten up my day!

Like what you see here and are interested in photographic composition?.....the blog section of my website now has a complete set of 5 articles covering my personal approach to the subject: Ian Bramham Photography - Blog

@See The Light: Do you mind if I call you Mary? (I hope thats right )
Thanks for your comments - you are very kind given the evident differing levels of talent between us! I aspire to be able, one day, to take photos as beautiful and touching as the ones on your site.

@Lorraine: I'm so pleased you liked it Lorraine - I've had that image lying around for a while now but didn't know what to do with it until I saw Peter's bolg.

Lorraine from Canada

and you weren't kidding about Peter's sight...WOW, did you see today's? (no you didn't 'cause I was the first to comment LOL)

@Lorraine: Yes - only just caught it now. Most of his captions are revealingly funny but every now and then he gets all serious and comes out with something funnily revealing and very, very insightful.

Brian from United States

Super, super pic! Very original idea and great processing. Wonderfully whimsical!

@Brian: Thanks Brian - I've had this idea lying around for a while since seeing Peter's PartialSight blog but never had the courage to post it until now. How he manages to come up with insightful/humorous captions every day is beyond me!

Viewfinder from Bradenton, United States

I like the picture; I like your narrative; and thanks for sending the url of PartialSight. You are right, it's a good one. Almost the "Far Side" of photoblogs. I laughed as I went through is archives. Not at the pix, but the captions. Some of them are hilarious.

@Viewfinder: Thanks Viewfinder - glad you liked PartialSight too!

Markus from Reading, United Kingdom

Nice one, like both the story and the picture equally, makes me sort of melancholic...

@Markus: Thanks Markus - 'melancholic' wasn't what I had in mind but now you mention it I can see what you mean.
