Header Competition # 28 - People

The header theme this week by Tom and is "Sports". Mac,TomDarlaMarthaGail's Man and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week.
This week Darla chose the theme of "PEOPLE". This is a broad subject and I took a lot of people shots on the trip.

My first person is a fellow flying companion on my tour, Darby. She was just being a kid on the ferry ride to Lido, Italy. We had been up for 28 hours.
A cute little boy at Salzburg, Austria. What a smile.
On the bus to the Neuscwanstien Castle with a friendly rider. She only spoke Japanese.
A neat gentleman in Lido, Italy. I love the hat, he took off his sunglasses for me. He was having his morning smoke break.
A photographer doing his job in Brixen, Italy. I was doing mine in capturing him.
My son, the director of the Shaker High School Band, with his proud parents. Salzburg awarded him a plaque.

Now here is something I've always wanted to do, stand on a post all day. An outfit from "The Wizard of Oz".
But I finally chose the modern girl taking a break on the cell phone. First you have to climb off the post.

Nice set of people pictures. You and your wife sure looked proud of your son. I like the Wizard of Oz character on the pole.

I think one of the best things about going to new places is the people you wil meet...

By the way Tom, you have a really nice family! Your son is a chip off the ol' block for sure!

Proud Mom and Dad, and rightly so!
She was painted up all shiny. I don't think I could stand on a post all day.

Tammie Lee said...

so many wonderful portraits!

Craver Vii said...

What an awful job. I would hate to hold back from exchanging howdy-do's with all those people. I would make a very bad statue.

Too bad I wasn't with you to translate Japanese. I am fluent in five or six everyday phrases. :-)

Pietro said...

Very fine portraits indeed. Interesting post, Tom.

Lanny said...

Sometimes people shots are the greatest. There is so much to see in a face. My computer is full of them and so are lots of boxes of photos.

Misty Dawn said...

This a collection of some great images, Tom! Outstanding work!

Tipper said...

What a cool header! Love all the photos of the kids-so sweet. The one of you, your son, and wife is really nice too.

Rose said...

I love the kids photos, but think my favorite is the one you took of the photographer taking his photo...

Denise said...

A lovely, lovely post with great photos. I thought the one of you, your wife and son was really special. How terrific that he was there to receive an award and that you were able to be with him.

Mary said...

Funny header shot! All good shots! You pay attention to people details very well.
