52 Stories – Photo bombed


Hi and welcome to week fifteen (in week sixteen…) in this series of stories. Apologies for the bad photos this week!

Photo bombed


My ‘test’ if you will, to knowing if I’ve succeeded in my quest to capture the story, will be that if I can just quote the journaling I’ve used on the page and not need/want to add anything here in the post to explain it further, then I have done it, I’ve got all the bits of the story down.

Here is the story from this page –

San Francisco Botanical Gardens. We continued our quest to get as many ‘selfies’ as we could without anyone offering to help. We got a good one right? With a little help from a squizzer……. September 2012

The takeaway from story number fifteen/would I add anything more?

Each week when I sit down to write these posts I ponder if I am actually learning anything from this process. This page is a good example that something is sticking I think I almost got the story down but I would like to add more.

Here’s what I’d like to have said – Well would you believe it. We had settled ourselves down in a quite spot, set up the camera checked all around for people and I’d pressed the shutter button and run back to sit with Gav. And as we sat there watching the red light flash and count down the seconds till the picture was taken a little grey fella hopped into the shot. We just sat there trying not to roll about laughing. Oh yes the quest for ‘selfies’ is a tricky one indeed.

I may go back and add a piece of cardstock over the top of my words we’ll see. In the meantime I’ll keep pressing on telling stories.


52 stories is a year long series or adventure in my story telling. Can I get the whole story onto a layout? Am I telling the stories I want to tell? Read the inspiration post here.
