The prompt for Sepia Saturday #301 is a lovely photograph of 4 very sweet young children, possibly with their father, who appear to be transfixed by something to their right which we cannot see. Looking through my collections of old family photographs unfortunately did not reveal any similar profile photographs, so instead here are a few shots that I took in 1996 when I was taking a photography course and did some of my own developing and printing in the home darkroom that I created in our ensuite bathroom. The quality of the printing is not great, but it has at least survived almost 20 years. Time marches on!
The first two photographs were taken at a local Carols by Candlelight evening, and show our younger daughter putting her heart and soul into the singing, with her grandma sitting beside her, out of focus. The bright lights are the candles in their cardboard holders.
Next are three shots showing our younger son, his older sister and their father engaged in watching various sporting events. Back in those days we seemed to spend the majority of our weekends ferrying children to soccer, baseball, softball, hockey or tennis matches.
We did manage to get away occasionally, usually over the summer school holidays, and here are a couple of photographs of our four at the beach, although perhaps this was a cooler day, as they don't really look like they are about to race each other to the waves.
