Oh, I do like to be beside the seasiiiiiiiide...  

Today's Friday's favourite is brought to you from a stunning North Cornish beach on a crisp early March day.  Emilia was digging sandcastles and collecting shells and not in the slightest bit interested in having her photo taken, which is quite right.  Who wants to be distracted from important business like that on a day at the beach?  I asked her to show me her best shell and she was very obliging and waited patiently for my reaction to her treasure.  "Click!" went the camera. I love the quizzical look and how interested she is in my thoughts on her seashell.  I've said it before and I'll say it again - my favourite photos aren't the ones with cheesy grins and posed set-ups.  The images I am most proud of are those with a real sense of the subject's character.  And what a character Emilia is!  

Incidentally, her shell was lovely.
