Family portraits capture a moment in time

Is it really 18 months since the last blog post? Have finally put pen to paper again or, more accurately, digits to the keyboard. In November 2014, Nick Fiennes of Fine Photography took some lovely photographs of the family.

The inspiration for doing that was a portrait of my great grandfather and great grandmother, TP and Harriett Carr, and their children. Here's one of Nick's portraits (from the top: Edwina, Kathryn, Ed, Julie and Elizabeth):

I will always remember the afternoon when when this photograph was taken. A very proud moment in time.

Here is the portrait of my ancestors. It is a little more than 100 years old (from the top: Leo, TP (Thomas Peter), Ernie, Harriett, Beatrice and Edwin ('Slip')).


  1. What a beautiful family Ed. Certainly worth showing them off in a blog post.

  2. I really like the concept of doing a photo today that resembles yesterday.
