I absolutely love this photo. It’s a shot of my sons’ great-grandfather, “BlackJack” Reddin, having a nap after picking hops in Kent, England. There’s something so evocative yet ephemeral about it. You can almost hear the buzzing of September bees and imagine the smell of the flowers beside his head. One badly tattered photograph can capture such a sweet, tiny memory.
Thanks to Tanya Reddin for sharing it. Posted by Picasa

About Anne de Haas

I'm a Toronto photographer specializing in portraits, executive portraits, actor headshots, musician portfolios, CD covers etc. I love shooting horses as well. I feel that photography is not so much about technology and equipment as it is about emotions and capturing the ephemeral. If there's a connection between photographer and subject then the result is something quite special.
