I have over the last twenty years built up a photographic family 'record' , my two children from birth, multiple holidays etc etc. Several thousand images forming a wonderful timeline, upon recently reviewing the albums with my twenty year old daughter I was thrilled to see how enthralled she was with then. Then 'the penny dropped' and she said to me ..... "dad this is wonderful but I feel so sad too, there are hardly any of you"

The price of being the 'family photographer' ? ..... It's time I handed over the camera to my children so that 'they' have a photographic record of 'me' too

Kind regards, Simon
