The Gallery was started by Sticky Fingers and is a popular blog hop that I love taking part in! If you do not know what it is I have included some details below.
Every Friday I give a prompt, an idea, a notion and you go out and take a photograph using that prompt. Or just use a photo you already have.
The prompt could be one word, an object, an idea, a phrase, anything, and you have to post a picture which you feel represents that prompt.
Post it on your blog and write about it.
It’s not about taking technically brilliant photos – although if you do, I’d love to see them too. It’s about having a passion for pictures; any photos, all photos whether you took it with your all singing all dancing SLR or snapped it on your camera phone.
This week’s topic, Children, is a great topic for me for The Gallery. I love children! My own and the ones that I teach, my nephews, my cousins and the children of friends. My Goddaughter. For safety and confidentiality reasons I cannot post pictures of my pupils on here but I hope that these children will make you smile.
I loved being a child and have many happy memories of being young and carefree. Most of those memories are shared with my sister who is captured here and many with my cousins, Paul and Glen. I do not have many photos to share but I hope that these few show you a bit of what I was like as a child. Pictured below are my children whose childhood is my main focus now and ensuring that theirs is as good or much better than mine.
