Ok ok ok, I went to "rest" on my jollies but I also did some work out there - you know... a busmans holiday. How could I refuse the beach and sunset opportunities? Its suicidal thinking about not being able to take shots. The resort was not that interesting photography-wise. I actually prefer to snap people - especially children. Children are at their most happiest on holiday and I wanted to get the best shots for their parents. I took some shots of an autistic boy, George and his sister, Lilly (who Ellie kept calling Izzy, so funny!) and managed to get shots that his mother was so happy with. As you know, children with autism show very little emotion on demand. But grabbing these tender moments with his sister was an absolute joy and even though they were literally just moments of tenderness (later they ended up having a real good fight) it goes to show that the camera never lies!
This is Jack. He has the most and I mean the most BEAUTIFUL eyes enveloped by the most luscious eyelashes. His parents and my gang became really good freinds. Just normal, holiday freinds. Generally most of my freinds are made through scrapping and Marks freinds through the army. It is such a refreshing change having so little in common and managing to have a lively holiday on the back of it.
Jack became great friends with Ellie and mark became his bombing buddy as they soaked not only those having a dip in the pool but those around the edge. Sunbathers became very weary when Mark and Jack got into swim mode and would sit up, pull all of their belongings under the sunbeds and wait for them to finsih splattering the world. I managed tao get snaps of them on their bombing missions and i'll post them tomorrow.
And finally meet Demi. Sweet, freckly Demi who was so very shy and quiet until I tripped over my sarong and when I fell over when I squat down to take low angled shots. She is so pretty and with those freckles and that beautful smile this little girl is going to break some hearts indeed.
Im glad I took the time to take pictures on holilday. i feel like I havent had a run of exciting shots in ages. The kids in these shots are still on holiday and I hope their parents look back on this very happy time we all had with as much affection as we have.
I have some shots of Elie for you tomorrow - that kids sure had a good time plus we have an exclusive picture of her with her eyes wide open - staring at the camera. ooooooooooooooooooooo!
