Walking back from Derwentwater to the car park in Keswick with our French guests, Saturday November 1st, I saw this little scenario developing fifty yards away on the grassy rise in Crow Park and had time to grab a sequence of four shots, of which three are usable. I am aware of some severe technical deficiencies but, remembering as I do the antics of Misswoolybill when she was that age, I thought the behavioural insight might be amusing.

Love the letter box shape, and space in this...also position of child in relationship to parents. I wish I'd not seen the other two though as it fills in the gaps in a story that, for me, were better left to imagination.

Sometimes us photographers stand there and wonder what to photograph next - then out of the blue an award winning sequence of pictures - just happens to walk by!!

I looked at this series of pictures capturing family life superbly for ages yesterday and again this morning. Hat‘s off to this photographer for capturing this moment in time. Top marks - and walks off with my weekly award. Smashing.
