Favourite pictures – Emma the photographer

Emma the photographer

As I looked through my google plus feed this morning I saw a ‘your year in photos’ post automatically added by google to my feed. When I looked through the sample of pictures in this the one above stood out as one of my better pictures of Emma, so I thought I’d make it the subject of a favourite picture post. This was taken in Bressingham gardens in Norfolk when we were on holiday there earlier in the year. Emma was walking about with her camera snapping lots of different pictures and sat down for a minute in a small garden house. Just as I walked up she raised the camera to take a picture of me and I ‘snapped her first’.

I’m a software developer by profession but I’ve been taking pictures since I was about 8 years old. In that time I’ve owned cameras of all types and sizes from 120 roll film thro’ 35mm to my current Pentax K-5, Ricoh GXR + P10/S10/A12 28mm/A12 50mm, Canon S95 and recently acquired Sony NEX 6.

    Good morning Simon

    This is a charming picture and, unlike most childhood pictures, will stand the test of time. In twenty years Emma will love this image and still be showing it off to friends!

    1. Thanks very much for saying so David
