My Favorite Photograph Meme

I have been tagged by Peggy at Perfectly Happy Mum to complete Tara from Sticky Fingers Favorite Photograph MeMe.

With the issues with my Laptop, I have been thinking about this and to narrow it down it is going to have to be from the last 4 years from when we went digital, as we don't have a scanner.

That does narrow it down somewhat, but that still leaves in excess of 5000 photographs taken by me.  I know this as I thankfully transferred them all to the external hard drive MadDad bought me for Christmas just before the laptop went terminal.

I love photographs I always have, they are the most wonderful prompts, they trigger memories, emotions, feelings and capture the perfect moment in time. 





So here is a perfect moment captured in time, the reasons being:

  • I was so happy at this time, It was taken in April 2009 just of out hospital after the sepsis and fill of the joys of spring.
  • It was taken at one of our favorite beeches - Sandsend in North Yorkshire
  • The boys adore the sea and were having a whale of a time and stayed in til they turned blue and then had ice cream sat in the boot of the towels in the car.
  • A wonderful day with my wonderful family and just so you know those wet suits are in the car, along with towels, spare clothes and lots of other provisions for that just incase moments like the above.
  • 3 of my 4 favorite things all in one photographs, Mini, Maxi and the sea.  All that is missing is MadDad.
So I would like to pass this on to the following, please let Tara know when you have posted as she, well that should be Erica will be producing a gallery.



Now I am sorry if you have already received this tag, but as I have been offline, I am way behind the time.

Thanks for the tag hun...I just did mine !

It may have been obvious to everyone else but this exercise made me realise that it's not the photo, but the feelings we had at the time that make the photo special :) x

LOVE it. Glad you have the wetsuits permanently back in the car just in case too - that sounds like an excellent idea.

How clever of you to keep all that suff in the car. My car is always empty (I think I may be slightly obsessive in the car-must-be-kept-clutter-free department), which means I'm never prepared for anything spontaneous.

I love the picture too, it really captures a fun moment.

That's a beautiful photo of such a happy moment! Good for you to be able to improvise like that, I tend to plan way too much...

It's a lovely photo, full of memories, but also, importantly, not snowy! I have already had enough snow today, and it's great to see children enjoying themselves in a different context too. Hope you solve all your computer probs soon,

Everything turns blue (apart from the sea) at Sandsend, if I remember.... And when I were a lad, we didn't have t'luxury of a wetsuit!

Lovely pic - obviously special!

Lovely pic and thanks for the tag. It looks like california with them in their little surfer suits! I have in my head a picture of me and my sister in our brownie uniforms, with my dad, but that is on the wall at home at my folks house, so I'll have to dig up another. What a lovely exuse to browse through my photos!
