Waiting Safely for Mom by Marianne Barnhardt

November 2020 - Waiting Safely for Mom

About the Image(s)

Yes, taken with permission. I was in Target and saw this family. The mom was running around and dad had the kids. It was just such a classic photo. Dad with mask, sitting near protection diapers, two kids with tablets. Such a COVID-babysitting scene.
Taken with my
Samsung Note 10 cell phone.

A nice casual photo of a family scene. I just find the background a little bit too overexposed so I did a little adjustment to reduce the luminousity of the backgound . Overall,it has a very nice human interest and great composition.   Posted: 11/07/2020 07:36:46

I like how this photo captures a moment of the times we are currently living in. The black and white also adds a timeless look to it. Well done.   Posted: 11/08/2020 11:20:12

I like the composition and I think the B&W rendering is great. It gives the image a photojournalism look and tells a story. I do wish I could see the faces of the man and other child. Especially the man, I wonder what he is looking at (his phone perhaps?)   Posted: 11/11/2020 16:40:08

He is definately looking at a phone. I was trying to keep faces out so I could use it in a contest. It placed in Guru and will be shown in Stockholm on facebook in December. USA B and W . Thanks so much for your comments.   Posted: 11/12/2020 09:49:02
