My mother took beautiful photos. Her brother was a photographer. My father drew a lot when he was young. His sister is a painter, potter, weaver. Each of my 6 sisters and brothers are talented makers of different things - houses, kitchens, gardens, decoupage, tapestries and photo books. My husband can take a good photo when he is relaxed. Margot draws and sings and has an exceptional imagination.
Joe is almost 14 and goes out every weekend to photograph the surf and surfers. That's him below in the dark clothes taking photos of the massive waves we had here in Maroubra last weekend.
These next two photos are by Will, who at almost 17 spends every weekend with his camera and a group of friends exploring the city. Some of what they get up to may not be strictly lawful but the results can be stunning.
How blessed I am with the genetic pool that contributed to my children's unfurling passions and creativity.
