This photo is of Syd at 17 months. The thing that makes it extra special to me is that it is a photo of my youngest child, taken by my oldest child.
Betsy is 16 and loves photography. She is currently studying it at A-level, and enjoys taking all manner of photographs – portraits, landscapes and objects – whatever catches her eye.
I like that she has been able to take a creative subject alongside three more academic subjects. And even tho I moan about the cost of endless films and photography paper, I am massively impressed with both her skill behind the camera, and that she can develop her own films too!
She can use digital cameras as well, and this shot was taken using that format. I think it captures Syd’s cheeky personality brilliantly. I also love the fact she chose to take the picture in front of some of our collection of guitars, which adds more of our family character to the shot as well as making an interesting background. I am thinking about having it made into a canvas for the wall, of course I will get her to sign it, just in case she ends up being the next David Bailey!
