Steemit Portrait Photography Contest Week 89 - Outdoor Portraits
This is my first time entering one of these Portrait Photography Contests.
I am pleased that the theme for this week is outdoor as this is one of my personal favourites.
I have never owned an actual camera myself (except for when I was a kid I was given one of the really early 'point-n-click' cameras with the role of film inside) All of my photography is shot using whatever mobile phone I happen to have at the time.
The photo I have submitted here is not one I took myself, but that is me standing there with my niece (back in October of 2010) and to be brutally honest, I have absolutely no idea who took that picture, I vaguely remember the day (visiting my brother and his family at their place which at that time was Blakiston SA) but who took that shot...?
I chose this picture for the Outdoor theme this week because it shows a typical sunny afternoon in the Adelaide Hills, green grass, gum trees, clear skies....it's very simple and may not seem significant or special to some, but these hills are home and I love them, just like I love my family who I was able to spend that beautiful, simple day with.
