A friend in need is a friend indeed


Hello ! My name is Juliette Labarre and I am 15.

My name is Pauline Gommard and I am 14.

Now, we are going to talk about the saying “A friend in need is a friend indeed” thanks to this picture. First, I am going to explain the meaning of it, then I am going to make a link between the picture and the saying, finally I will conclude with Pauline.

As you can notice, we have chosen a picture of us on which Pauline is falling down and I am catching her to help her. This picture has two meanings for us. Well, I’d like to start with the saying. To my mind, “A friend in need is a friend indeed” means a good friend should help you when you’re indeed, so when you come across difficulties in your life. It means a good friend should be with you whenever, even at night or if you’re sick for example. they shouldn’t let you down and must be trustworthy. To sum up, in my point of view, a friend in need could count on me to help him or her.

Turning to the description. On the picture, we can see three people, so it’s a tree shot with a low angle. The scene takes place in the school’s corridor in the afternoon . We can see a girl who is comfortably reading lying on the floor and crossing her legs. I didn’t see her so I get mixed up my legs and I fell down. Juliette is catching me by the arm to help me. We have chosen this angle because on this picture, Juliette is helping me out because she’s my friend. This angle has a good effect to emphasise on people ‘s courage. We wanted to show the importance of a friend who is helping another.

Moving on now to the link between the picture and the saying. On the one hand, it illustrates the fact that physically, when a friend needs you, you help him not to get hurt him. On the other hand, our picture well illustrates the saying because it shows that a good friend doesn’t let his friend  sad or even alone. A friend in need, needs a good listener, a kind friend and someone who cares about him. In catching Pauline, this photo shows I want to help her and stop her problems.

We decided to take the picture in the afternoon because in the first place, we had free time. Secondly, other people were in the classrooms so there were few people in the corridor; We took the picture beside windows to have a good light and effect and also to get the best view of all the characters. Then, we took the picture in the school’s corridor because we usually spend ou time in the corridors. Finally, we  can notice that I fell down because of a girl who is not friendly at all and doesn’t take care of others.

To conclude, our picture is clear  because the angles and the shot are perfect and we can have a good vision of best friend’s qualities too. Finally, our picture describes friendship in two ways and very well illustrates the saying “A friend in need is a friend indeed”. So, we did a good job. Thanks for your attention. Any questions ?
