As I have 3 boys glued to my hip, so to speak, I am still taking photos on my phone. I have graduated to using instagram though. So with one hand on the prams handle bar and the other holding my phone I take advantage of the scenery while walking to the park, getting a coffee or the neighbourhood supermarket. When the opportunity presents itself, I quickly snap the boys to attention by commanding ‘pram’ so that while my eyes are diverted away and concentrating on something interesting they are safely hanging onto the pram just in case I eat their chocolate chip biscuit. Why the bribery you ask? I don’t want my kids going anywhere near the road with these crazy drivers, let alone in a strangers van but most importantly, I don’t want to see any stray limbs appearing in any of my photographs. I’m pretty quick though, another advantage of using the phone, a painless 2 seconds and it’s all over and ‘we’re off’ again up the street until I see something and command ‘pram’ again.
This is San Isidro, my neighbourhood. It’s an eye catching suburb. See for yourself.
