She’s amazed!

Having taken the short trip from South Shields to Gateshead’s Metro Centre we discovered that the Metroland indoor funfair is about to close, as a kind of tribute there was a display of miniaturised scale models of old fashioned funfair rides being displayed to raise money for charitable causes.

That’s where we found this little girl and her lion transfixed by the old fashioned dolls swinging around in this little fantasy world.

This is cropped from a larger image, where I used two layers in Photoshop, a black and white layer over a coloured layer, a soft eraser was set to 50% opacity to reveal the underlying colour for the young girl.

Camera details; Pentax K100D, mm lens, 1/90 second, f3.5, iso 400

  1. I should probably invest in Photoshop and start playing around with it. Perhaps a new camera has priority, though.

  2. Nice photograph. The expression on the little girl is priceless.

  3. Beautiful study of the concentration of a lovely child. Love the way you’ve made the background B and W.
