Bath-time and using photography
This was quickly drawn from life. The toy sailing boat in the background is what Robin uses to teach Xavier the parts of a boat. He can identify rigging, mast, forestay, boom, keel, mainsail, jib, cockpit, bow and stern. Pretty impressive for a four year old, don’t you think?
It is such a a struggle trying to capture a moving subject matter. And sometimes it really is worth taking advantage of the moments that only photography can catch.

Since the older picture we have had a sparkling new tiled white bathroom installed. Worth every penny – the depression I felt as I entered the mouldy damp carpeted dusty pink bathroom gone forever.
