“Oh what a beautiful baby Laura is he yours?’

“Yes he’s our new son. We’ve adopted him and he’s called Bobby.’

“Oh I do love the name.’

“How old is he Laura?’

“He’s six months old.’

“My God, he’s a big boy for six months, look at the size of him.’

“You should take a nice photo of him with your husband.’

“If I get my camera will you take a few shots because my father and mother would love one?’


Laura disappeared into the house she went to the wardrobe and found the instamatic camera and rushed out with it.’

“My goodness, I haven’t see one of these cameras for a while. Philip my husband is in a camera club you know.’ I will ask him to come and take some professional photos of Bobby for you.’

“Would you; that would be nice.’

“He can get the silver frames cheaply too with being in the camera club.’

“I would like a big one to put on the wall and some smaller ones to give to our parents if he could.’

“I will have a word with him; I’m sure he will do it for you Laura but in the mean time I will take some with this one.’

“Albert” come and stand with me beside the cars so Edith can take some photos.’

Edith took a couple of Bobby in his highchair then three with both Laura and then Albert holding him. Laura removed his hat so that his curly blond hair was showing. Bobby had a good head of hair for a baby. They waited until they were dry and then looked at them.’

“They will be far sharper with a real camera, Philip has a Pentax K-70 all- weather camera with 18-135 mm range and WR lens. He also has a Cannon EOS 6D with digital settings with SLR 24-105 mm range and F/4L lens.’ It is a passion rather than a hobby with my husband.’

“We must get a decent camera Albert, I want to capture lots of images of Bobby so he can look back on them when he grows up.’

Albert went back to waxing the cars as Laura invited Edith in for a coffee. Albert made bubbles for Bobby and blew them towards him he giggled and reached out trying to grab them.

“You like that don’t you Bobby.’ Albert continued playing for ten minutes then went to polish Laura’s car.’

Bobby happily played with his little teddy bear as Albert waxed the car then buffed it to a high shine.’

Both cars were now gleaming and Albert emptied the bucket down a storm drain he picked up the rags then went back into the house.
