scholarship girl

Dear Annie,


Since my fifteenth birthday -when my Dad gave me an Olympus Trip and set me up a darkroom in our downstairs loo- I have been interested in photography. It is only since we began this blog, however, that I found myself taking photographs pretty much every day. With a blogger's eye, I notice tiny details. I look for beauty in the ordinary and for charm in the commonplace. Like any mother, I also try to remember to regularly take photographs of my children. These are not generally photographs which I share here, because that is not the focus of our blog. I do, however, read and enjoy many other blogs with such a focus. My favourite of these has always been Slugs on the Refrigerator, a beautiful blog by Kat Goldin.

Along with Kat Molesworth from Housewife Confidential, Kat recently began a new venture offering e-courses in photography, with an emphasis on photographing children: Capturing Childhood. The Kats ran a competition, with the prize of a scholarship for their inaugural course: Collect the Moments. They were looking for a picture which told a story, shared through Twitter or Instagram.

Instagram is a relatively new obsession for me, and I loved having the impetus to use it as a tool to capture tiny instants in the lives of my boys which would otherwise have been forgotten.

When Kat G sent me a message to say that out of all the entries, they had chosen me as the recipient of the scholarship, I was both shocked and delighted. The course starts on Monday, and I absolutely cannot wait to begin.

Love from,
