Week 4 – My Favourites

It was incredibly hard to just choose 4 this week, which is always a lovely problem to have.  However, I am so happy with my top four!  I love the expression on the little boy (top right), if that doesn’t make you smile today then nothing will!

Week 4 #capturingtheday. Four photos: A girl smiles and looks over a hay bale. A little boy has open eyes and a smile as he looks at his beach toys. A little girl is upside down in a tunnel smiling. A child looks out onto a duck pond.

To see what Gemma had to say this week, check out her post here.  She has picked some fabulous photos as well. Such lovely choices.

Four Photos: A little boy smiles as he is running to the camera. Hundreds of red and green apples in boxes. A glass pot filled with homemade jam with a spoon on top. A little girl in a yellow dress sits under a tree on top of leaves.
