Capturing a Kodak moment

Leave a comment

Whilst waiting in Grand Central Terminal for Mummy and Mia, Ben and I decided to take some shots of the station. We found the escalators that go from GCT up into the lobby of the Met Life Building and thought it would be a good spot to slow things down and capture the hustle and bustle of the daily grind! It didn’t take long before Ben got bored and started to wander around during the shots, after all, all he was interested in was the picture once it was taken, not the processes used to get there. Just as I was pressing the shutter who should stumble across the frame…yep, you guessed it, little old Benny!

Now, normally I would bin this photo as it doesn’t portray what I originally set out to capture. However, looking at it again many months after it was taken, I now like it a lot and think it captures perfectly, a time in our lives that we have all experienced – being a child and not having a care in this world! Ben sums this up perfectly by not only walking in front of the camera at the exact moment I press the shutter, but also by the expression on his face created by blowing air out of his cheeks (most likely accompanied with a tune being hummed under his breath!).
