Holiday Photos of 20 Years Ago

In my childhood of course we took photos as all families did. But like all family ‘snap shots’, my pictures were just that, a small blink of family life, mostly with a family member doing something or just relaxing. I suspose I never really considered what I was photographing. Now, it seems that all I ever take are family ‘snap shots’.

Sat at my PC today, not my iphone that I generally blog from, I had access to my bigger photo library, the one that did not start 7 years ago, as did the one my iPhone. That one started when the girls were but small babes.

This collection of tropical flowers, I believe were my first real, considered images, taken whilst on a tropical holiday. Looking back at them, I can see that I was clearly playing with the idea of cutting in close, not bothered with the larger picture, just a small part of it.

I am no professional photographer, but I do appreciate form! Please note, a couple of the images have been tweeked in Photoshop. 20 years seems an awfully long time ago. But seeing these pictures again, I am reminded that the way I consider things (on a visual level), irrecoverably changed on this holiday…

  1. Andi, you may not be a professional photographer but the images you have captured here are beautiful.
    Well done!
    When I was out walking yesterday I got some pictures of lilac bushes just beginning to bloom, I love photos of flowers and nature!

        Of course, the journey is a real pleasure to take… the metaphorical one that is! Always a pleasure. Maybe a few less screams from them might be good Anya. πŸ˜‰
