This week the theme is "Favorite Photo." I don't know how anyone can pick just one favorite photo. I'm a photographer and I have many favorite photos that I've taken. I could never pick just one.
I also have a large collection of photos taken by other family members. There are many favorite photos among those, depending upon who is the subject. I could write dozens of posts entitled "My Favorite Photo of XXX." (Hmm, now that might be a very good idea....)
So for this week, I'm choosing one of my favorite photos taken of my youngest daughter and me. I'm not in many photos, since I'm usually the photographer. I have to remember occasionally to hand the camera to someone else so I can be in the photo, too.
This photo was taken while she attended Creative Play Center preschool. It is a cooperative preschool and parents volunteered once a week, plus we might have other jobs, too. I was the scheduler of the volunteers for our class. One of the parents was the photographer. I don't remember who it was. Our prints don't have a photographer's name imprinted on them. They are just copies made from the camera developing store.
The photographer posed us outdoors in the playground, which is located in back of the school. The school is actually a house that has been added to over the years. Besides play equipment, there are lots of trees that shade the backyard nicely.
I don't remember the date, as Margaret could have been either in the A.M. class or the P.M. class for older children. I think what I love most is the expression on her face. She really loved the camera. I also like the photo being black & white, as it reminds me of photos of long ago.
I took the girls one afternoon to Nancy Boyd Park and shot photos of them on the old style playground equipment. Elizabeth loved the monkey bars best and the higher they were, the better. Both girls had a great time posing for me and I'm glad now I used black & white film.
