World Photography Day - The Gallery

Tara Cain over at Sticky Fingers had tweeted about World Photography Day and I thought what a great way to spend some time, at the Burghley Sculpture Gardens. So the Big One and Princess were given cameras and free reign to snap away. They had a great time right up to the point where the Big One's batteries ran out *fail*

It was wonderful watching them run around and capture their afternoon through a lens. I could have used one of their photos for the Gallery but to be honest there wasn't a shot there that I would say captured the moment or would be saved for years to come in an album to show the grandkids!

The children had abandoned their cameras to run up and down this hill and around the wooden 'carrots' (I'm pretty sure that wasn't what the artist had in mind when he conceived his sculpture) and I just got a quick glimpse of Princess through the Big One's legs and I snapped not even thinking that it would come out okay.

This sums up our World Photography Day.

Thanks Tara. Pop over to Sticky Fingers to see other entries in the Gallery.


  1. Great composition - the spontaneous ones nearly always come out the best! And yes, what's with the giant carrots? lol

  2. Great action shot! And it was lovely to meet you yesterday at the Mothercare meet up. x

  3. Oh yes, didn't spot the little one at first. Great

  4. What a fab photo. I love that you managed to get both the children in it in that way. It's a really fun shot.
    Sounds like you had a great day of memory making too.

  5. Oh yes!There's a little person popping up between his legs. Great capture! x

  6. It kind of reminds me of the Nightgarden, a fab shot of what looks like a fun day out.


Oooh, I do like a good comment :-)
