it’s a family thing
A long time ago, way back in the ’70s, I loved to take photos, but owing to life’s little curves that it throws at you, I found I had no course but to give it up. Moving on at nearly sixty, I felt the call again to pick up a camera, but being disabled with a family, price would be a major consideration. A few weeks passed and I had a Canon EOS 1100D and a couple of lenses, all secondhand. I was out and about snapping away. It was great. I suppose the saying ‘if you can’t beat them join them’ springs to mind because the wife got a camera followed by my daughter. So now we all go out and about once or twice a week and have found it really has become a family thing.
We joined the local camera club after a hunt to find one that suited our needs, and found a very pleasant group of people that are now firm friends.
So as you can see, photography can be a team sport. Adam, Vanessa & Zoe Newell, Luton
Thank you Newells for sharing your story. What a wonderful, inspiring letter. It’s great to hear how a Canon DSLR and photography can bring a family closer together.
Who else often heads out with their camera and family together?
