Just for a change i wanted to talk about my photography journey.

In May 2010 we did a 3 week road trip around the West Coast of the USA. I brought a Olympus PEN EP 1 , enjoyed the experience and carried on taking some shots on our return.

In October of 2011 we went on our honeymoon to the Maldives.

It was there that i took this photo.

It was on a visit to a school on one of the islands , the kids in the school went mental when we all arrived , charging our of the door and running wild. Whilst this was going on , my attention was drawn to the window line , i could see someone inside . I brought the camera up , and this little star of a girl with beautiful blue ribbons i her hair , just looked out of the window , without a care in the world.

And then something special happened

As i pressed the shutter , i knew , i just knew i had grabbed a good shot , not a good snap , i had taken a good photograph , not a great one , just a good photograph.It was a very special feeling . I am pleased to say it has happened a couple of times since .

I have not explained this very well , but this little photo will always remain very very special to me , and i now take a break from the trip photos to share it with my friends on 500px.

I hope you like it.
