Seeing the 'Dear Photograph' tumblr on so many blogs at the moment (even one of my best friends sent me the link) reminds me of my failed attempt at this kind of photograph with Thomas's family beach hut last August.
It doesn't look quite so impressive when
1. you're facing the wrong direction
2. there's a giant windbreak in the photo
3. you're holding the photo at a wonky angle...
I gave up after two attempts! haha!
Perhaps I'll try again soon...
p.s you see a better scan of the photo and more of the beach hut here. It's a bit out of date though as its been raised and now has steps again.
