The Story of Yes

Behind the Photographs Behind every photograph there is a story. Some more interesting than others! The “Behind the Photographs” posts will give you a flavour of the story of how a particular photograph came to be. If you would like us to blog about your favourite photo then let us know.

So what's the story behind ‘Yes?’

October 2015 saw the RKAB Works family heading to Devon for a short break at Woodford Bridge Country Club. This lovely little resort has lodges set within wooded parkland making it a superb place to relax. It also has some unusual permanent residents. Yes, you guessed it, peacocks.

So there we were having breakfast when up at the kitchen window popped a peacock. After recovering from the surprise it was time to starting taking photos.

Initially from the breakfast table and then moving closer and closer to the window. The peacock never moved. Well the angle of his head changed as he wondered what these weird people with cameras were doing! Even right up at the window he never moved. Snap! We took ‘Yes?’

We discovered the peacocks weren't worried about people and were actually very friendly, especially if you had some bird seed! At one stage we had six of them visiting our patio tucking into the seed from the on-site shop.

‘Yes?’ Is one of our favourite images. We have it on a cushion on the sofa. A great talking point when people visit. Why not get one for your house and have a very different talking point of your own?
