Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #67: Candid

This is my submission for Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #67: Candid.

Anne-Christine said: “Taking photos of people or animals when they have no idea that you’re doing it is called candid photography.”

I love candid photos. It seems to me that when someone posing for a photo, the excitement (surprise?) part of a photo would no longer be there. 😉


At a farmers market in Vermont… the light was irresistible.



I saw similar emotion on their faces. The man on the left had a sign saying: “Retired teacher (I think it was “teacher”… I don’t remember). Pension not enough for living.” (Something like that.) How can anyone forget him?

A ring pop was the reward of being a ring bearer at the wedding. Whatever worked… but blue? 😉

Thank you, Anne-Christine.

Thank you for visiting my blog.

      Thanks, Lois. Surprisingly, his shirt stayed white! But like I told Dawn, I wasn’t thrilled that he kept sticking his tongue out when I tried to take a photo later. 😉
      Have a great day.

    I wonder what flavor is that blue ring pop. Blueberry? Butterfly pea flower?
