The One That (nearly) Got Away – Another HCB Imitation, One/124

Trying to divert myself from some depressing reality today, I came across another Cartier Bresson imitation today (to follow two earlier posts), possibly the best I have created. It really was a rapidly assessed moment –  as I glanced through the open church door, this lady was striding away in the bright midday sunlight:

Through the open door

Don’t you just love those delicious, deep shadows!!


  1. Yes, delicious indeed! And so much better for my figure than cakes and cream
    I’m a huge Cartier Bresson fan, Sue, so thanks for this. I’ll catch up on your others when I get a bit more time.

  2. I do like those “Dark Shadows”, Sue, and I have that in caps and quotes because there was a soap opera back in the 60’s ? call that, featuring Barnabas Collins, a vampire. While we didn’t have a TV at the time, I did see a number of episodes and it was quite enjoyable. I’d imitate my last comment on your previous C-B post, but I can’t quite recall the wording. I think I like this one best of all, though, for what that’s worth. 🙂 Hope you Monday has gotten less depressing and the week gets better and better.


  3. wonderful photo, Sue, hope you’re better now

  5. A good antidote to stress, chanelling Henri. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  6. This IS cool, and I am glad to see you are entertained with this prompt. I love the image Sue, you great “imitator” 😆 but don’t hate me for loving your eyes (yes still) the best.

  7. I do! 🙂 🙂 Love the shadows and the plunge down the steps.
    Distressing reality on a personal level, Sue, or the wider world?

  8. Well you didn’t have to wait for this shot did you? Perfectly captured. Deep breath Sue and breathe………….. Sending you peace from Cornwall. xx

  9. I do love it, Sue. Sorry If I sound intrusive, but reading above, prompted me to say perhpas the obvious, that everything passes, even distress, so don’t host it too long.

  10. I like your shot a lot, Sue – and hope you are feeling better now!

  11. The shade angles really make this.

  12. I foind out too late there’s a Cartier Bresson exhibition in San Gimignano at the moment! would have loved to see it.

  13. Just did a piece on Bresson. What a wonderful character. I love your photo. Bresson was greatly influenced by the Surrealists, he was nearly one himself
