I like the image and the subject matter - too many taboos around breast feeding - but I fear the pose looks too 'artificial'. The technical side is good - even lighting crisp focus and uncluttered background. Perhaps the white sheet could have been less wrinkeled and the small section against teh background could have been photoshopped out as it is a distraction. The black dress was well chosen - it sets Alexandr's skin colour off well and indeed is an excellent counter-point to Ksenia's pale skin. I trust the nappy-less Alexandr didn't spoil it!
Reading what i have just written it might seem that I don't like the image which is far from the truth - I really like it.
This will be my first ever journal entry as I don't think I normally have much to say other than via the camera.

However, the topic of the Scottish referendum has 'got my dander' up. For those of you who may not know, people currently living in Scotland (whether or not they were born there) will get an opportunity to vote on whether they stay a part of the United Kingdom or become an independent state. As a Scot (born in Aberdeen) but currently living in England I do not get a vote. However, the result of the referendum will affect my citizenship as I will no longer automatically have the right to remain in the England, country where I have lived for over 40 years.

I am not saying that I am against independence rather that I would have liked the opportunity to express my opinion on such an important topic. In fact my head says No, while my heart says Yes.

Ok Rant over - I'll go back to my journal free existence!
