    Just because I like including bits of me in photos though in a way I have to as it seems like no one else takes pictures of me. I guess this may also be true of most other family photographers. :)

    Very true and it gets a bit sad as you get older. I try to encourage photographing your other half - to both sexes!

    I find formal portraits very difficult and was never satisfied with the results when people actually paid me to take them. This which I have posted here previously is from one of the very few studio sessions I did for my own pleasure.

    I much prefer an informal, unposed or environmental portrait, or as some would say a snap shot.

    Well I'd be proud of those.
    They all give me an insight (probably wrongly) into who they are/were.
    Mr W looks fun. The one in control of the boat is wicked and handsome! But not someone to tangle with. The portrait of a teenager shows tenderness.
    Yes, lovely lot of portraits.

    I think you are spot on with your thoughts:
    Mr.W is an old mate from college who was my best man, he is a lot of fun to be around and loves cooking for everyone. The photo was taken early in the morning one New Year's Day, the raised eyebrow is one of 'why are you taking my picture'.
    The boat was in Turkey, he was totally in control of the boat, knew when to go fast and when to take more care. He would enter a harbour at modest speed until he could see that there were no other boats in his way then show off to anyone on the harbour wall. An no I would not want to mess with him.
    The teenager is my younger off spring who is all hoodie and hide behind his locks. He is also the one playing pool some years previously.
