The Gallery … My Awesome Photo

The theme for Sticky Fingers Gallery this week is My Awesome Photo

I took this photo on one of the last days of this extra long summer in the garden. Like so many of us I take lots of photos with my iPhone and am useless at lifting my actual camera much these days. But this afternoon I had decided I was going to take some photos with the camera.

I don’t own a fancy camera, just a point and shoot and as much as I would love to learn about technique I just don’t have the time/focus/skills/desire to spend time reading and training myself. I also just love getting images in the moment that remind me of that second and worry if I am looking for the right light etc I might lose that passion.

I love this shot so much, his mouth not pausing from talking, the bit of hair flicked out, the Lightening Mcqueen t shirt & cap he lived in all summer and his chocolate eyes. My gorgeous boy.

    The best thing about these pictures is that they take you right back to the moment you took it. So the fact that you remember he was chattering away makes it even more meaningful to you – albeit that it is a lovley photo anyway ๐Ÿ™‚

    this is great, I’ve never had a fancy camera either and love to just point and shoot and capture the moment, although i do try to get good pictures I always opt for a point and shoot camera and you can get some really lovely photos like your one here by having that thought pattern lovely moments captured forever x

    These are my favorite kind of shots. Not posed, and capturing the essence of someone. Simple and beautiful.

    I love the moment this has captured. The clarity of his face and the twinkle in his eye is just perfect. The whole photo is simple yet elegant.
