LOVE this image

Here is a photo of me taken by my daughter when she was four. And it’s one of my all time favourites!

We bought her a camera for her birthday when she turned four. Just a little point and press. But not a kiddie one. A real one. (Nikon Coolpix 5 megapixel.) We looked at buying her a toy one that actually took photos, but they just looked a bit… well…. pretend. They were expensive, too. In fact the Nikon was comparable in price.

So, we gave her a real camera, turned off the auto flash, and left her to it. We get lots of photos of the ceiling, the TV, her dolls and teddies… and every now and then, we get some real smokers! I LOVE this one of me. So nicely composed. (I haven’t done anything to it, besides adding a watermark and resizing it.) There are some others that I really like, too. I’ll post them some time so you can see what a clever and creative girl we have.

Only down side is she now loves being BEHIND the camera and gets bored when I ask to take photos of her! [SIGH.]

Want some free greeting cards?

Before I had children, and had plenty of time for hawking my wares, some of my images were selling as greeting cards in boutique paper, card and gift stores around Sydney. Not many places, mind you, but they were selling. Then along came baby number one, and I just didn’t have the time to devote to pushing my work.

Well,  now you can win a pack of five cards (my selection), just by leaving a comment here! Come on….. I know you’re out there….. stalking…..but not commenting….

The cards come complete with envelopes and are cello-wrapped to keep the photos in mint condition. Simply be one of the first three people to leave me a comment, and I’ll send you the cards through the post. (Let me know how to contact you so I can ask for your postal address.)

Here are a few images from my range of greeting cards. Again, I am scanning these, as most of them were shot on slide film before I switched to digital. Hope you like them!
