Your photographs

We all have them, binders, photo albums or even a shoe box. All full of unique photographs capturing moments in our lives for prosperity. When photography was relatively novel, photography was more like a science and in most cases a privilege. However techniques and availability of cameras and film processing, particularly in the post war years has meant that there was a surge in photographs of families, friends, experiences, moments and objects. Today, it has is a part of life, with computers, tablets, smart phones and digital camera able to take instant photos.

We would love to build up a gallery full of your shots – they can be of anything you like (keep it decent please!) with a caption and as much background information you would like to add. The great thing, like the photos below, is that it is very easy to take photographs of a photograph using a smart phone or digital camera. If you have something you’d like to share, you can take a photograph and send it directly to us via out email address – silverrobinsubmissions@outlook.com

Make sure the photograph has no glare and make sure the digital camera/smart phone is held steadily. Try not to use the flash as it may also create glare. If in doubt ask a member of your family to help you out. We look forward to seeing some of your history. To get this started we have gone right back to a 100 years ago, with these great shots shared by Silver Robins’ own Avril. As mentioned, they can be from any decade, of anything you choose. If you’d like to share a story behind the photograph, then that’s even better.
