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?
