Tara’s theme over at The Gallery this week is portraits, and I’m definitely not going to win any prizes for fabulous photography with my entry!
It’s a photo of my parents at my Dad’s surprise 60th birthday celebration (almost 12 years ago now – where does time go to), taken with a cheap pre-digital film camera *gasps in horror*!
The colour is really dodgy, the net curtain in the background is dreadful (luckily it was taken in a restaurant, so I’m not going to upset anybody with my opinion of the decor!), and the picture itself has been cut up appallingly because I wanted it to fit in a particular frame.
Having said all that, however, I just LOVE this photograph – Mum & Dad look so happy and relaxed, and it brings back memories of a really fantastic evening. This photo does everything that a photo should in my opinion, and that’s why I’ve chosen it for this week’s Gallery.
