This week’s Belle Views comes from some very special friends of The Travel Belles who recently went to Disney World in Orlando. The above shot, which I love for many reasons – the shiny blue of the walkway for one, not to mention the precious subjects – has me wondering about what it is I’ve always liked so much about photos of my own children taken from behind. Perhaps it’s because that is how I often have seen them over the years – running out ahead of me, sometimes away from me – both literally and figuratively. These kind of family photographs often seem to capture the memories of a certain era better than those images featuring forced smiles and unnatural posing. Besides there’s an undeniable energy with all those little feet venturing out into the world.
Here’s one more photo submitted from the same Disney trip – just because. Who doesn’t remember what it was like to want to be tall enough to go on the big kid rides?
Do you have some favorite family photographs from Disney World?
