The photo of my grandparents was taken very recently before a family holiday and it is one of my favourite ones of them – always cheerful (and still trying to over-feed us). It was nice to reflect on the photo and make a sketch of it, as it gives me time to really contemplate the picture and what it means in a way which we don’t always get too when we rely on fast technology like cameras, when moments are almost disposable because of the convenience. I look forward to sharing the image with my grandparents, where there is often a language barrier between us, and so hopefully they will appreciate it without needing too many words!!
