Any Distance Greater


ANY DISTANCE GREATER

They remember the tiny, teary-eyed tearaways we were when we were born, they dream of the beautiful, blushing brides we will be when we grow up... They sit up all night waiting on us when we fall ill, they sit up all night to help us when we need help, they sit up worrying all night when we are out and haven't called yet. They always remember the first kick, the first tooth, the first fall, the first heartache. After years of nurture, when we are ready to fly high with our own wings, mothers hold onto the memory of the child we once were - that bond is unbreakable. That's why whenever, as Simon Armitage says,  "any distance greater than a single span/requires a second pair of hands," we reach out to find those of our mothers'.

Mothers never let us down when we try to get back up.

Mothers love us not for what we do, but for who we are.

Mothers see us at our worst, yet still see in us our best.

Dude do you realise that the young lady in the shot has her nose squashed?

Sinem, can I hire your services to comment on my photos? You have some deep words, I could just come to Suby's blog just to read you words. (Really trying hard to make Suby jealous here).

Suby, good colour. Just the nose...Well done.
Nice family shot. You captured a very "sweet caring" atmosphere. At first glance I didn't notice the girls nose was squashed. But now that I'm aware, it is a bit distracting. Maybe you can photoshop it?

Nicely composed!

But to me, although I can clearly see the emotions that the child is expressing for mum, I can't see any emotional connection on the mother's part.

The dosen't convey a deep sense of emotional bonding between mother and child im afraid!

Finally out, been in meetings all morning, Yuck.

Jide, trying to steal my woman from me? Watch out you guys, I am training her in the tools of the trade (have partly started) and she has already started putting in place plans for shutterchance domination. She is eventually going to be my assistant (I will probably end up being her assistant smile )

Ok I have to admit, I have an unfair advantage. She is actually just finishing her thesis in Literature (everyone out there it's going to be strictly Dr Sinem in the next few months) and is an exceptional writer, poet and all around good girl. Sorry peeps, I got her 1st SO BACK OFF!!!! smile

Thanks for the comments so far, actually liked the fact that her nose was squashed and for me it painted a picture of a daughter really trying to get closer to her mum. Point out I have different images from this series but as you all know, it is hard choosing 1 image from a series of shots. Keep those comments rolling in peeps. That's the reason why we post our work, we want to know what you think, how we can improve, at the end of the day, it is down to the photographer to either appreciate or be defensive with comments. I am appreciative.

Great shot man. A little tight on the crop, but nice lighting.
Can see what you mean about the girl's nose, at first I didn't like it but can now see a different interpretation. They don't seem related to each other, I'm not feeling the two way emotion but I can see how they would love this picture.

I think the crop is good, adds to the drama/emotion.

Like it. Very whimsical (squased nose), looks very natural...
Great studio shot! It works very well.
