[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
As much as the technical details and compositional theories are sometimes bandied about, there are those who just enjoy shooting pictures of their loved ones while on holiday.

While we were on holiday at Butchart Gardens in Victoria, British Columbia, I spotted this mother doing just that in front of the Ross Fountain. I took my share of photos of the spectacular fountain as well, but couldn't resist snapping some of my fellow photographers.

Cropped, levels adjusted, adjusted saturation slightly, sharpened.

Bonjour Robert,

Well, all of us are somehow photographs within our heart. Those feelings existed long before the coming of photograhy, with people commanding (ordering?) portraits from professionnal painters, in the baroque period for example.

After all, the picture taken by this mother is just a tangible reminder of her love...

Hi Bob,
A great moment was captured, really. We're all photographers in our heart and soul... Quite simple compo, but why overdo things if simplicity works? Excellent portrait of a weekend photographer at 'work'. Tfs.
Have a nice weekend, cheerz, László
