Living Arrows 2/52

by Clare Mansell

The second week at January and Theo’s back at school befriending the new girl in class, bringing home love tokens from another girl and telling me he’s got two girlfriends… both with the same name (which is handy I suppose!)


50mm, ISO 1250 (accidental!) f/1.8, 1/1250

His reception class has nearly double the number of  girls as it does boys and he is reveling in it.

At the moment all I seem to tell this boy is to lower the volume or just to talk a little less. He might have been slow to master the talking thing as a toddler, but now it seems like not a moment passes where he’s not chattering away or singing. Why am I surprised? His Auntie likes a good natter (sorry Zoe!) and his mother used to be a Radio DJ… the apple apparently doesn’t fall far from the tree!

Oh what a gorgeous shot! Kitty’s class is mostly girls too, as was her nursery class, I wonder if it’s a year group that will always have a lot of girls? It sounds like Theo is absolutely loving school 🙂

I’m loving your ‘accidental’. Have to love one of those moments! I’m living learning about my dslr and really looking forward to capturing moments like this xx
