I find it hard to get rid of pictures. I’ve been trying to filter and edit the gazillions of images we have stored on our PC. My trawl has thrown up some gems from our summer holiday in France. Like this one, of my daughter splashing in the pool.
We have scores of shots of my son and daughter whizzing down water slides. I got all happy with the ‘best frame capture’ function on my camera – slides aren’t a place for keeping still and saying cheese, and I wanted to make sure I captured that moment. The huge grin of excitement that comes in the middle of a huge, galumphing splash into the water.
But even though I’ve picked out the best ones, I can’t bring myself to delete all the out-takes. They make up a little flickbook of images that show the range of emotions on my kids’ faces while they’re splashing their way down those slides. Scrunched-up noses, grimaces, even fear. We probably all look like that when we’re on a water slide. But only the very young can make it look super-cute.
So I’m going to hang on to those offcuts for now.
I’m linking this post up with #MyCapturedMoment at Running in Lavender.
