This week’s Challenge was suggested by Jay – thanks!
The man on the Clapham omnibus, aka Everyman: Portraits of ordinary people
You might be able to take this literally if you live in Clapham; but for everyone else this should be interpreted as a portrait of an ordinary person or group of people. Try to capture a slice of ordinary life where you are – something that is taken for granted by people going about their daily business.
All the better if visitors to this website in a hundred years’ time find your picture fascinating, and can learn something from it of how we used to live “in the olden days”.
I think that some of the most interesting historical photographs are the ones taken of ordinary people, by ordinary people. One of my favourite websites, How to be a Retronaut, recently posted some pictures of ordinary children from various backgrounds, taken around a hundred years ago.
It’s up to you if your picture is posed or candid. Either way, please send it in by noon on Tuesday 30th November. Feel free to add a few words if you think this would help put your picture in context.
Good luck with this one
