Self Portrait

A friend has started a photography group and each fortnight we submit photos based on a theme. This fortnight it is "Portraits".

Here are mine. A series I call "Being Mum". Typical days with my boys. All taken with my Canon on timer and whatever I could prop it on.

It is something fun to do and it makes a nice record/memory of your days. As I am always behind the camera this is quite nice that I am in some photos :D

It's an afternoon


It's an afternoon 2

Finally!

  21. The picture of the stairs with the figure walking up them is my favourite. That feeling of relief that playtime is over and we have survived another day as we walk up to bed is a precious one!
