Show me your favourite photograph and tell me why it's your favourite.
Short and sweet - yes. Simple? NO!
I am a picture taking fool. I literally have thousands of photographs of family and pets and places... some from years ago to a couple from yesterday. My mother took a photography course when I was in my early teens and there are lots of pictures from then that are just gorgeous. My husband and I have been taking pictures. There are wedding pictures... and of course once we had a kid, well he was/is just so gorgeous that if I owned stock in any photographic arena at all, I'd be a rich lady right about now.
All that said, I did not take my favorite photograph of all time. A professional did it.
We didn't have much money when ZBoy was little. My husband had been laid off from his job for a while and we lived very simply. I took lots of photos myself, but I wanted some professional shots just once (as if this were a magic thing). I engaged the same couple that did our wedding pictures and took ZBoy, then aged 4 months to have his picture taken. It was the perfect time. His skin was flawless, he was alert and happy and cooperative (mostly), and it was the only time when he was actually a little plump baby. He came out a string bean and spent most of his toddlerhood quite tall and thin for a kid his age. But at four months, he was absolutely delicious to look at.
This picture makes me go all soft and mushy everytime I see it.
