I just love this photo. It has memories of travelling home after Christmas lunch many years ago. Four very boisterous and loud kids (My twin boys and their cousins) fell asleep. I love it and thought I would share it. Originally taken on film, this has been scanned and change to mono in CS 3, due to fading of colour etc over time. :) Was also chosen as a finalist in the Head On portrait prize 2011.

    Like the nostalgia that black and white lends to this great shot.

    I agree this is a treasure and also reminds me when I was little, coming home from trips, falling asleep and having my dad carry me in when we got home.

    I also remember the falling asleep thing and pretending to be too tired to walk when I was a little older in the vain hope that I might still be carried in.
