I think the song came first with this one…heard it on the radio recently having not heard it for a long time. It just exudes happiness and joy and all that’s good about life…so I thought – by way of ringing out the old year – I’d put together some of the images I think illustrate what Al Green & Annie Lennox are singing to us about. Note that many of these images never made it past the cutting room floor on the grounds that they were “too smiley”…my 10 and 7 year olds tell me there are not half enough smiles in my images…well now…we’re about to sort that one out!

    Doreen, glad to see the site and blog is working out so well for you. All the above comments ring true, the latest photo’s are inspiring. I have to agree with your kids, you capture smiles very well. I’m due to give birth any day now and would love it, if you could take a few photos of my little one in at some point in the future.
