When I get photographs of friends’ children I spend as much time analysing the objects accidentally included in the photograph as I spend looking at the sweet faces. This is the background behind my dear niece today. Possible facts: about to leave for/just got back from a trip (suitcase and plastic bag too full to be from shopping), wearing new clothes (new type of plastic clothes hanger with sticker on floor. Mothercare?), she’s growing up (electric sockets off but no longer covered up, cable on floor).
