Adrian Dix and Don Davies

Adrian Dix and Don Davies at the Moon Festival © 2013 Jenn Lin Photography

I think this photo is pretty self-explanatory (see sign to the right), but here’s Vancouver-Kingsway leader, Adrian Dix, and Vancouver-Kingsway MP, Don Davies, pictured at Slocan Park during the Moon Festival on September 21, 2013. For the Harvest Fair portion of the Moon Festival, members of the community are invited to enter their biggest plants and vegetables into the Harvest Fair Competition in order to win a prize.

While I wasn’t able to photograph the two of them head on, I’m glad I didn’t, because I like this angle so much more. The candidness of their expressions, the way their knees seem to be buckling under a weight that probably isn’t really that heavy, the sign in the background which provides the photo with context, the colourful flags drawing your attention to the centre of the photo, and the plants and people in the backdrop (especially the woman to the left who is laughing)—these things all give an inviting and festive feel to the photograph.
