I just wrote a Blog post for a Tots100 competition showing one of my favourite recent photos.
I wanted here to show you the photos immediately before and after that moment in the photo that I chose.
We were all at Manor House Wildlife Park (Manor Park) for Rebecca’s 6th birthday (I have a whole draft post about this coming up).
Danny, Rebecca and Caitlyn were playing in the Autumn Leaves, while Isabelle watched them excitedly.
Caitlyn saw that Isabelle wanted to join in the fun and passes her a leaf, telling her solemnly, “Not in the mouth, Izzy!”
Isabelle smelt it. She touched it.
She decided that she rather liked it and gave us a lovely happy smile. This is the photo that I entered (above).
Then, she waved it about excitedly, until it was time for her to come out to play too.
Here she is with Great Granny.
Just to remind us all that there is a longer story behind every snapshot of our lives.
If you have any favourite photos and stories feel free to share your posts in the comments below and I’ll come and look at them.
