Ellie over at Insomniac Mummy has tagged me to show my favourite photo and talk about why it’s my favourite.
I have literally thousands and thousands of photos and not just since digital cameras. I was always the annoying kid at school and then later as a teenager photographing everything. I got the bug from my Dad who is an awesome photographer, he even did our wedding photos. But since I got my first digital camera in 2001 and then in phones…well it’s gotten a little out of hand.
So where to start?
I have a old box which I inherited from my grandmother full of photos of her family and my ancestors, I have photos in there going back to the 1880’s. 30 years after her death the box is my reminder of her, it still smells of her house and if our house was burning down other than Paul, Miss L & Betty it’s the only thing I’d fight to save.
So I’ve gone through all of those, the photos in my iphoto and all my scans and this is the one that is my favourite as it was such a magical moment.
It was taken 24th September 2003 when Miss L was 6 months and 20 days – her first steps. I didn’t know that babies weren’t supposed to walk quite that young, but there she was cruising away hanging on to the furniture and occasionally taking a few steps on her own. Doing her own thing, despite the fact that she shouldn’t be able to – some things never change. It’s my proudest moment ever and look at that ‘I’ve done it!’ smile she’s got, just gorgeous!
I’m a bit rubbish at tagging people, so anyone reading this consider yourself tagged if you’d like to join in. I’d love to see all your favourite photos.
