My Favourite Picture

I happened to visit Rosiero at Alcoholic Daze and became eligible to carry on this meme to display my favourite picture and to say why. Rosiero showed a photograph of her dog Snoopy and told a lovely story as to why it was her particular favourite.

Like her, I have several "favourites" and it really was a question of which to pick. It could have been my parent's wedding photo, or one of my pets and another I love is one of my son with his dog. We were all on a walk in the forest close to where my son lives in South Australia. I let them wander on ahead and took their photo. I feel quite emotional whenever I look at it, particularly now that Moss has gone to the big kennel in the sky!

The one I have chosen was also taken in Australia. It is of my eldest grandson and his sister, taken at the local park. They are 9 and 6 now but the photo was taken about 4 years ago. It is so colourful and they are having fun and it is an image I absolutely love of the two of them. I was lucky to capture it as they got to the bottom of the slide. Of course it is also a holiday snap and a lovely reminder of the happy times I have with them whenever I am able to visit.

I think I will leave it to anyone who wishes to, to take up this meme.

Hi Anne,
That gimp program is good but I have to admit I took ages to do that composite picture, which may be me being stupid as I have never done anything like it before.
But there are tutorials on line.
