Photographer's Note

I call this my "Hovis" picture, and people from the UK may recall the hugely nostalgic advertising campaign for this brown bread (invented in Macclesfield for Trivia buffs), which ran for many years with scenes such as this.

In real life this was shot in late afternoon in St Albans (I think in Abby Mill Lane, near St Albans Abby, but I can't be sure). Although I used a medium-strength filter, most of the colour was caused by shooting almost directly into the sun - and somehow just about everything in the shot was a beautiful rusty-brown colour anyway.

The children in the shot are running home, downhill, after school.

Not colorised or anything in Photoshop. The original slide (I think on Kodachrome 64) really does look like this!
