PhotoFriday – ‘Candid Shot’

This week’s Photo Friday entry: ’Candid Shot’

This weeks theme is candid shot and I was thinking of putting in a photo of a fish yawning. It was however pointed out to me that the word candid only applied to people, so disbeliever that I am I looked it up on the oxford online dictionaries and darned if it isnt true! It makes mention specially as

“(of a photograph of a person) taken informally, especially without the subject’s knowledge”

So here we are, transported back to 2008 when I first got my DSLR, location: Venice, event: Masked Ball for Carnevale di Venezia. Bear in mind four things when looking at these photos, one, I was a newbie, two, I should probably reprocess them in a newer version of LR, three, there wasn’t much light and finally, four, I’m better at taking pictures of fish 😉 I hope you enjoy reliving this experience with me anyway. Below is a photo of me in my get-up (taken by Mike), the rest of the photos are all candid shots I took through an evening of opera & dinner – all done incognito:

To see more images from this ball, the gallery is here. It’s great fun if you ever get a change to go.

If you do want to see my underwater photos from various places then check out the galleries in my Reef Beasties Gallery. Or my best from 2012 here.
